DigiTV wins EC funding to deliver health care services via digital TV

DigiTV has won EC funding to develop remote health and social care capability within its interactive digital TV technology, as part of a European consortium tasked with building and enhancing telecare and telehealth provision across Europe. The funding, announced at a consortium project kick off meeting in Valencia earlier this month, will back solutions to help the increasing population of chronically ill and elderly people remain independent and living at home as long as possible.

DigiTV is a not-for-profit organisation wholly owned by Kirklees Council working on behalf of the local government community in the UK. Full story here.
