Comment Neelie
[...] We also do not need more proof of concept. There is so much evidence already. Take the UK project on the Whole System Demonstrator. By deploying telehealth and telecare, tariff costs decreased by 8%, bed days by 14%, emergency admissions by 20%; and most amazingly, death rates fell by 45%! The UK government is now convinced and will scale up this experiment to involve 50.000 patients, and move from there to the nationwide '3 million lives' campaign.
