Telehealth and Telecare Group

The group focuses on the development and evaluation of remote monitoring technologies that aim to improve the management of long-term conditions (telehealth) and patient safety (telecare).

Projects include the Whole Systems Demonstrator Evaluation which investigates home-based remote monitoring for patients with COPD, diabetes or heart failure and the vulnerable elderly, and the T+ Study which evaluates smart phone technologies for monitoring diabetes. Other research includes testing the feasibility of using video conferencing technology for the delivery of aphasia therapy, and using web-based applications to facilitate self-help to improve postnatal wellbeing and treat low-level postnatal psychological problems. The group has strong links with industry, NHS Trusts and the Department of Health (England) and their work influences the development of remote monitoring technologies and health policy in this area.
