    Abstract

    Publication of the European Commission eHealth Action Plan for 2012 to 2020 provides a focus for telehealth. Its accompanying Staff Working Paper seeks ‘a policy debate on how innovation can contribute to rethinking the way in which healthcare is provided, by considering the latest developments in technology, innovative services and the growing impact of new media on the health and well-being systems.’ The paper below responds to this call by offering a wider understanding (and definition) of telehealth. It also reports on the European Code of Practice for Telehealth Services (developed within the European Commission funded TeleSCoPE project) in helping to influence the configuration of telehealth services and in supporting a clearer European vision.
