BSH presentation on Telehealth leads to article in Future Cardiology

Dr Kevin Goode gave a presentation at the British Society for Heart Failure meeting in London (Nov 2013) which has lead to a commissioned opinion article appearing in the March edition of the journal Future Cardiology.

" telehealth becomes more sophisticated and perhaps the only economic option for the delivery of chronic disease management, might we see a shift from self-management to one of surveillance by the state?"

"Indeed, given the societal costs of nonadherence, what responsibility does the state have to ensure that patients comply with their medication?"

New publication on how to evaluate telehealth services

Kevin Goode, Amanda Crundall-Goode and David Barrett have published:
Goode KM, Crundall-Goode A, Barrett DI (2014) Measuring the effectiveness of home telemonitoring British Journal of Healthcare Management 20: 165-171 

Abstract: As home telemonitoring (HTM) moves away from randomised controlled trials and towards the mainstreaming of services, a clear set of guidance on how to evaluate them is needed. Without appropriate and systematic evaluations, the healthcare sector and those who commission its services will not be able to learn important lessons about which aspects of HTM work best. This article will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different strategies that can be employed by commissioners and service providers in the evaluation of HTM services.
