Case study: Designing and delivering scalable telemonitoring and telecare through partnership

10/22/2015 12:00:00 AM

Northern Ireland has a population of approximately 1.8 million people. Around two thirds of people aged 75 years or older in Northern Ireland are living with one or more chronic diseases. 69% of health and social care spend, 60% of all GP visits and 72% of acute hospital bed days are related to chronic disease. Increasing demand and the rising cost of care, along with a declining health budget in Northern Ireland, has meant that the health service has to find better and more efficient ways to ensure that high quality services continue to be provided. Telemonitoring is a prime example of this innovation.
