A reader wrote the other day to question why this news service is called Telecare Aware when all the stories seemed to be about telehealth. The gist of my reply was:
- telecare and telehealth technologies are on a convergent path, so you need to be aware of developments in both
- I run with a broad definition of telecare (see the terminology discussion under ‘Opinion’)
- I can only publicise the stories that pass through my news scanning processes, and the mix of ones I present to you will reflect what is coming through at that time
So if there is a dearth of telecare stories on Telecare Aware, it is the sign of a good time to get it together and put some out there!
