This discussion paper was produced by Stephanie Elsy and the Good Governance Institute and funded by Tunstall Healthcare UK to answer the question of why Telehealth services have not spread widely as was expected some years ago. A sample of experts and practitioners in health, social care and housing were asked why they thought this was the case, what the barriers to adoption were and what solutions there might be to make it possible for people who might benefit from telehealth to access these services. This discussion paper written by Stephanie Elsy and Alison Rogan of Tunstall summarises our findings and recommendations.
The report was widely disseminated across government and industry. It was well received in the sector and helped to contribute to the development of government policy in this important area for the development of health services in the community
