News :: Transforming the patient experience with telehealth in Europe
(30/10/2013) The EU has granted 5 million euros to the project United4Health in order to transform the patient experience with telehealth in Europe.
By monitoring telehealth pilots all over Europe, United4Health will validate and strengthen evidence that chronic disease management by telehealth solutions is indeed effective and cost-efficient.
For many years, telehealth solutions have been trialled. "We aim to give scientific validity to these pilot results", explains project coordinator Janne Rasmussen (Scottish NHS). "United4Health should demonstrate, once and for all, through the deployment of services at scale, the benefits of telehealth, and unlock the market for these services in the whole of the European Union. It will promote collaboration between EU regions and establish a network for exchanging successful experiences, best practices, and benchmarking."
