Telehealth, the use of Information and Communication Technologies to deliver healthcare remotely, has grown in prominence over recent years. However, despite investment, telehealth is still in a state of infancy. Most deployments are led by telehealth enthusiasts and few mainstream services exist. We believe one of the reasons for this is that delivering telehealth is a complex programme of change yet few initiatives follow a structured approach to deliver the business objectives. Based on our experience, and validated with national and international colleagues, this toolkit provides a framework which can be followed and which should provide a supportive environment for telehealth to flourish.
NIHR CLAHRC for South Yorkshire produced a ground breaking toolkit to support implementation.
