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.
This is the legacy webpage for the United4Health (U4H) programme in Scotland and provides the following information :
• Summary of the key findings and achievements
• Copies of the Final U4H Evaluation Reports
• Overview of Scottish Partners involved in U4H
• Outline of the U4H Care Models and Technologies
• Scottish Lessons-Learned Report: Lessons Learned and Guidelines for Implementation
There are also a number of resources, case studies and video clips providing insight into patient experience which are all free to access and download.
