Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Health and care systems around the world are facing a number of wicked challenges.  The increase in the number of older people, the significant increasing incidence of long-term conditions coupled with significant societal challenges are all beginning to challenge conventional health and care delivery systems.  When you add into this mix the increasing financial constraints being felt by most economies around the world it was clear that something must change.

Technology has always been a fundamental companion in the delivery of high quality health care.  However, the time lag between invention to widespread implementation remains far too long.  Increasingly there is a body of opinion that recognises that we must not simply empower patients to participate in their own care but through the appropriate and targeted use of technology become deliverers of their own care (co-production) and that the burden of informal caring often shouldered by family, friends or neighbours becomes much easier.  Through innovative service redesign, supported by the appropriate deployment of technologies we can help deliver the necessary integration of health and social care.  It is that integration that will improve quality for patients and their carers but also improve effectiveness and drive efficiencies within health and care systems.

Papers on any aspect of telehealth care are sought, we are particularly interested in papers highlighting best practice, innovative service models, successful incentives and barriers to deployment.
