    Abstract

    The evolution of the European Code of Practice for Telehealth Services is evident from releases of drafts at successive Medetel Conferences (in 2012 and 2013). The final version of the Code was launched in October 2013 at the European Telemedicine Conference. The procedures by which telehealth services can become accredited to the Code are now in place. This paper outlines the contents of the European Code and points to the way in which it is helping to influence thinking about telehealth - moving it away from narrow understandings that have focused on vital-signs monitoring towards those that are equally concerned with lifestyles, prevention, behaviour change and self-management.
