Telehealth project report shows savings. Kent (UK)

At a launch last week Kent County Council unveiled the results of a large telehealth project that, conducted in 2006-07, predates the Whole System Demonstrator Programme. According to the Kent website, rolling out telehealth could save Kent £7million a year. Now, extrapolate that to the rest of the NHS… “The work that has been done during the trial, and which is now being rolled out as part of Kent’s regular business, could bring forward a closer working relationship between health and social care.”
