Welcome to the website of the Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare (SCTT). In line with the launch of a National Delivery plan for Telehealth and Telecare, recently announced by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing, this website is being redeveloped to better match our key work programmes over the next three years.
The SCTT was established to support and guide the development of telehealth and telecare throughout Scotland. This involves working across boundaries with industry, academia, local authorities, NHS Boards and voluntary and independent sectors to develop recognised models for redesigning health and care services.
The Centre’s role is to provide support and advice to all these key stakeholders and help evaluate the potential benefits of new technologies, with the aim of making Scotland a recognised global leader in telehealth and telecare. Specifically the Centre was tasked with -
- Disseminating best practice
- Providing practical support, both clinical and technical
- Co-ordinating the evaluation of projects
- Evaluating the impact of telehealth telecare on service redesign
- Developing inter-operable standards and protocols
The Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare is part of NHS 24.
