Lincolnshire CCG tech review to put patients in control of health

A north Lincolnshire CCG is examining the way technology is currently used in its region to conclude how it can be used to allow people with long term health problems to monitor their own condition at home.

A north Lincolnshire CCG is examining the way technology is currently used in its region to conclude how it can be used to allow people with long term health problems to monitor their own condition at home.

The review follows calls from Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS England’s National Medical Director, for CCGs to support the Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) programme.

The CCG is dissolving its current telehealth contract in favour of more “effective, evidence-based systems” after research suggested that the system brings limited health management benefits in the face of emerging technology.

Dr Nick Stewart, the CCG’s Clinical Lead for Long Term Conditions explains why the review will benefit patients: “Our patients consistently tell us how important it is to them to remain independent and in control of their own healthcare.

“By harnessing the power of digital technology we can empower people to manage their own care in a way that is right for them that also delivers value for money. Our ambition as a CCG is to support the innovative use of technology to improve health outcomes, empower patients, and deliver more cost-effective services as part of a modern model of integrated care.”
