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.
"...as 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?"
