Ready Steady Go telehealth implementation toolkit 


CLAHRC SY has collaborated with an EU-funded project called Regional Information and Communication Technology based Clusters for Health Care Applications and R&D integration (RICHARD) to launch a new toolkit to help organisations implement telehealth successfully.

There has been much interest in the development of telehealth but few services have become mainstream. Those who have tried it soon realise it is a complex intervention that is difficult to get right. In part this may explain the mixed evidence base that points towards some deployments being successful while others have failed.

Based on experience, and validated by national and international colleagues, the Ready Steady Go toolkit provides a framework that can be followed by organisations as they incorporate telehealth, and which should provide a supportive environment in which telehealth can flourish.

Anyone involved in the delivery of a telehealth programme should find value in this toolkit. For those new to telehealth it provides a detailed account of steps that should be covered, and provides insight into common mistakes and ways in which progress can be monitored. For those with more experience, benefit could still be derived as it may provide new insights into certain aspects of service implementation along with a clear over-riding framework that can assist in ensuring all aspects of the programme are managed effectively.
This toolkit has received the following positive review by telecareaware:

'Ready Steady Go' telehealth implementation toolkit: Surprisingly good (UK)
Wednesday, 19 September 2012 17:12


Any document that runs to 108 pages and sets itself up to be a guide to implementing a telehealth programme runs the risk of being disregarded with a world-weary, cynical sigh. That would be a mistake in the case of the 'Ready Steady Go' telehealth implementation toolkit just published by the Sheffield-based South Yorkshire Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC), part of the NHS's National Institute for Health Research. The publication of this supplier agnostic and free toolkit has surely saved the 3 Million Lives (3ML) campaign a shed load of money, as well as time.

The authors are well known figures in the UK's telehealth community... Dr Simon Brownsell and Tim Ellis (with inputs from a number of experts around Europe) and the work was funded by the European Commission's RICHARD Project. However, good credentials do not necessarily mean that the content will be useful or readable. Well, this editor (Steve) is happy to report that it is very readable thanks to structuring it around the analogy of preparations for, undertaking, and reviewing, a race. Even better, the toolkit is illustrated with pictures of real people not stock photos of models, the curse of too many documents and websites these days.

And in case you are wondering, their definition of 'telehealth' is wide:"...the use of Information and Communication Technologies to support healthcare at a distance between a medical or care professional and a patient." but the focus is clearly on remote vital signs monitoring.
