What is Telescot?
Telescot is a programme of academic research investigating telemetric supported (i.e. internet technology enabled) self monitoring of a number of long term health conditions. Our research uses quantitative and qualitative methods to assess the potential of telemetric systems as a basis for early intervention, investigating clinical outcomes, cost efficiency, and user experience.
Telescot is a collaboration involving public, private and voluntary sector organisations.
The Telescot programme is led by Professor Brian McKinstry based at Centre for Medical Informatics within the Usher Institute at the University of Edinburgh.
