Resources

Getting ready for your retirement includes preparing your finances for it. Why? Let’s face it medical expenses can be much higher as you grow old; money coming in will not be as much as before, among other reasons. Thus, it would be advisable to invest in binary options with Fintech LTD as well as in healthcare. It will cover up your medical bills in the future and enjoy your life without having to worry about finances.

Telehealth case studies

Telehealth is helping individuals across the UK to gain better control of their long term conditions and improve their quality of life.  Findings from the Whole System Demonstrators have shown that telehealth can help people stay out of hospital, reduce the number of visits needed to Accident and Emergency departments and, perhaps most significantly, reduce mortality.  Research papers can provide the evidence, but they don’t tell the whole story.  Case studies from across the UK are being collected to highlight just how beneficial telehealth can be for anyone who is in need of this technology enabled service.

Making Connections Report 2013

This report reflects on the impressive use of technology currently provided by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and also draws on the innovative progress that has been made by the NHS through their experience of telehealth.

The VHA and the NHS have a history of working together and this report marks the launch of a three year Exchange Programme.  It is hoped that this programme will act as a trigger for the implementation of digital health in mainstream services in England as well as contribute to the development of telehealth within the VHA.
