£11m and 81,000 bed days saved

22nd April 2009

New figures have shown that Scotland's Telecare Development Programme has saved £11m and is improving the health of its users.

The data compiled by the York Health Economics Consortium at York University also estimates that 81,000 bed days have been saved in Scotland in a year thanks to telecare. This includes 5,668 bed days saved through speedier discharge, 13,870 through reduced unplanned admissions and 61,990 care home bed days saved by enabling people to stay at on their own home rather than care homes.
