eHealth Telehealth Programme Overview
The development and application of telehealth solutions is identified in the Sláintecare Implementation Strategy as essential to underpin new models of care, and to support delivery of care in the community closer to patients and their families.
Video Enabled Care (VEC)
This is a web-based solution that helps healthcare providers offer video call access to their services as part of business as usual operations.
Remote Health Monitoring
Remote Health Monitoring uses digital technologies to enable those with chronic conditions to manage them from home, and supports their health care providers through providing access to accurate and real-time data.
Online Supports & Therapies
Online Supports & Therapies encompass access to health-related information and guidance, self-help and peer support, and the provision of therapeutic interventions enabled by the utilisation of internet-based resources and platforms.
The eHealth Telehealth Programme is governed by the National Telehealth Steering Committee.
Partners & Collaborators
To ensure broad collaboration, engagement, co-design and consistent local implementation processes, we are working with a large digital family including many diverse partners and collaborators across the healthcare service.
Engagement, Research & Evaluation
Pursuing a framework for evaluating digital health interventions is vital to generate evidence required for decision-making on the appropriate approach to integrate effective strategies into broader national health systems.
