The evening of the 22nd October saw a first for ‘telehealth’. As part of the The Health Foundation’s ‘The Power of People‘ programme, The Health Foundation have commissioned 5 cinema class short films about practical, pragmatic (and low cost) methods of making a substantial difference to patients lives. The Health Foundation cast the net wide and undertook a comprehensive analysis of possible subjects, eventually settling on the 5 featured areas, including Simple Telehealth/Florence.
Lisa Taylor and I were privileged to witness the impact of the first screening of the 5 films on the mixed audience of patients, carers, health professionals, academics, journalists et al. The films are of outstanding quality and quickly struck a chord with the audience, hitting clinical, technical, emotional and common sense notes. The films enjoyed an enthusiastic and overwhelmingly positive reception.
The Health Foundation: “A simple to use system with a big personality, Flo shows that telehealth does not have to be about complicated technology.”
