Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare

United4Health, a three-year European large-scale deployment programme, was set up to implement and assess the impact of remote monitoring of patients with chronic conditions.

Launched in January 2013, the programme was led by NHS 24 and deployed 25 telehealth service models in 14 regions across 10 countries.

Scotland, as one of the largest deployment sites, utilised telemonitoring to support and improve the care and self-management of patients living with diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure (CHF).
The different approaches followed by the three territorial Scottish Health Boards involved – Greater Glasgow & Clyde, Lanarkshire and Ayrshire & Arran – have produced significant learning in the use of remote telemonitoring as part of patient care. Key achievements of the programme in Scotland are highlighted below.
