“3 million could benefit from ‘doctor by broadband’ by 2017” Paul Burstow, Care Services Minister

Telehealth will enable being with conditions like heart disease and diabetes to monitor their own health. send in results remotely, and consult their doctors online

Imagine what’s possible if you just made that “Doctor by Mobile Broadband”? Imagine if you moved to leverage the 3G that already provides broadband coverage to more than 98% of the UK population?

Can the NHS not learn anything from the successful patient engagement from Kaiser Permanente’s mHealth strategy in the US? They’re likely to exceed 3 million mobile connected patients (of a total of “only” 9 million) by this summer!
