Lack of clinical evidence, user adoption, reimbursement and business models: These have often been identified as the main explanations for the difficulty of getting telemedicine pilots deployed. An element that has been much less studied is the lack of deployment method. Unquestionably, this is also a pitfall.

Secrets to success

Several organisations and key players in telemedicine across Europe have decided to join forces. They have launched the Momentum project to work on how to deploy telemedicine, by analysing those initiatives which have been successfully deployed and identifying the reasons why they were successful, i.e. their secrets!

This session is the first opportunity to access the first results of the Momentum project, a list of success factors which are critical for the deployment of telemedicine in routine care on a large scale.

Moderator: Andrea Pavlickova, NHS24 and Action Group B3 on Integrated Care of EIP on AHA.
