About the congress

Building on the success of our previous two congresses, this year the focus of our international congress on telehealth and telecare was on the innovation, integration and implementation of these services.

The congress brought together people to share experiences and to showcase new ideas, new research and new innovations in telehealth and telecare that have been shown to support improvements in care of people with long-term conditions and other health social care needs.
