"the [Simple Telehealth] service has matured and is gaining clinician acceptance"

We first came across Simple Telehealth in preparing our report ‘Healthcare without Walls’ in 2010.  It was evident that the proposition had real potential to aid LTC patients in a non-intrusive manner.  Over the last couple of years, we have been really impressed how through Phil O’Connell’s patience and determination, the service has matured and is gaining clinician acceptance, particularly around treatment and medication compliance.  The recent BMJ studies signal where best the NHS can deploy it at scale to help many, many NHS patients - it’s also intriguing to hear how other major health systems including in the US are showing real interest too in its potential.
