Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare

Digital Healthtelehealth

The Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare was established to support and guide the development of technology enabled healthcare in Scotland. This involves working across boundaries with industry, academia and the 14 regional NHS Boards.

Our key principles are to:

  •  enable people to better manage their own health and wellbeing, and improve their quality of life;
  • enable people to stay at home or in the community for as long as is appropriate and avoid the need for unplanned care where possible;
  • improve access to specialist care services where possible via Video Consultation
  • streamline care pathways to enable sustainable health and care services;
  • effectively plan and manage appropriate transition from pilot projects to at-scale mainstream services.
