    • 4. The NHS in Scotland is facing growing demand for its services and NHS boards need to consider new models of care such as telehealth to help manage current and future demand. Targeted appropriately, telehealth offers the potential to help NHS boards deliver a range of clinical services more efficiently and effectively. NHS boards should consider the use of telehealth when introducing or redesigning clinical services.

    • 6. Definitions….. “Telehealth” is the provision of health services at a distance using a range of digital and mobile technologies. This includes the capture and relay of physiological measurements from the home/community for clinical review and early intervention, often in support of self management; and “teleconsultations” where technology such as email, telephone, telemetry, video conferencing, digital imaging, web and digital television are used to support consultations between professional to professional, clinicians and patients, or between groups of clinicians.
    • 7. Definitions….. “Telecare” is the provision of care services at a distance using a range of analogue, digital and mobile technologies. These range from simple personal alarms, devices and sensors in the home, through to more complex technologies such as those which monitor daily activity patterns, home care activity, enable ‘safer walking’ in the community for people with cognitive impairments/physical frailties, detect falls and epilepsy seizures, facilitate medication prompting, and provide enhanced environmental safety.
    • 8. Definitions….. • “Telehealthcare” is used as an overarching term to describe both telehealth and telecare together.
