Simple Telehealth - NHS Innovation


Published on

Simple Telehealth – a toolset and methodology designed by and for the NHS and is provided as a not for profit service to participating NHS Trusts as a solution to unmet Telehealth need. It is primarily used in the NHS but it can equally be applied in a social care context, combining the power of the patient’s own mobile phone with clinical and commercial protocols. With STH, the tables are turned and the patient is given the tools, assistance and information to take more responsibility for the management of their condition. STH transfers responsibility and cost away from clinicians, freeing up clinician time to prioritise and work with the most appropriate patients.
