    Abstract

    Telecare has the potential to help reduce the number of avoidable emergency admissions and re-admissions to hospital, increase the speed of discharge from hospital once clinical need is met, reduce the use of care homes, improve the quality of life of users of telecare services and reduce the pressure on (informal) carers.
