Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare


The United4Health programme has provided patients living with diabetes, COPD or heart failure a central role in the management of their condition. Through home-based monitoring of a patient’s health and wellbeing, this enabled earlier detection of worsening health, supporting self management and early treatment that helped avoid hospitalisation and/or early discharge from hospital for patients who could be monitored at home during recovery.

IMG_6355The three-year United4Health project involved people living in Lanarkshire, Ayrshire & Arran and Greater Glasgow and Clyde (East Renfrewshire and Renfrewshire). It aimed to demonstrate that ICT solutions for the management of people living with long-term conditions in home settings, deployed at scale, can support the delivery of integrated care for patients, their relatives and other informal carers, and healthcare professionals.
