White Paper: Telecare; telehealth; the bad news; the good news

At last we have finished wading through the 236 pages of the White Paper Our Health, Our Care, Our Say: A New Direction for Community Services to sniff out the implications for telecare and telehealth in England. Our main conclusion is that the White Paper is disappointing because of the lack of a coherent, fundamental vision of social services, health services, housing and other service providers working together to produce radical, preventive services. It does contain good news for people interested in the telecare and telehealth agenda — but it is hard to find.
