A Danish group visited Scotland recently – to learn more about new technology and the Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare.

 

The visitors from the Naestved Municipality Health and Social Care Committee found out more about how technology such as iPads, apps and tablets are being used in health and care.

During the fact-finding trip, the group learned more about the work of SCTT and how that fits into a modern healthcare system.

They also found out about the use of iPads to support amputees leaving hospital and self-management technology on the remote Western Isles.

The Scandinavian guests were also treated to a talk on the Scottish experience of Mastermind – an app that improves access to behavioural therapy.

A tour of NHS Grampian’s Health and Care Village in Aberdeen was also set up to showcase technology enabled care.

Now both groups are set to continue the partnership and work together on a knowledge exchange.

A series of webinars will cover health and social care integration, dementia and technology and Telecare service developments.
