Cleland, John; Barrett, David


John Cleland


Over recent years, telehealth has increasingly demonstrated its value in supporting the delivery of cardiovascular healthcare. From teletriage services as a portal into healthcare through to telemonitoring of heart failure patients, technology is already increasing the ability of practitioners to provide care remotely, empower patients and improve clinical outcomes. In the future, telehealth services have the potential to have an even greater impact on the provision of cardiovascular care. Embedding telehealth services into mainstream cardiac care, the development of more sophisticated devices and the utilisation of technology in a wider range of clinical contexts will help to accelerate the adoption of telehealth throughout healthcare. This article evaluates the current state of the art in telehealth provision and explores some of the areas for future development in this fast-moving and exciting area of clinical practice.
