This presentation will challenge the status quo and suggest we need to radically rethink how we reconfigure and deliver future health services.  It will look at the role that technology has played to date and what role it may play in the future.  The presentation will explore the different digital channels available to deliver health services and the platforms available to serve the needs of patients, their family as well as informal and formal carers.  It will give insight to Scotland’s strategy for telehealth and telecare delivery and focus on the increasing importance of co-production in health and care settings.  It will showcase the findings from a national community engagement exercise on the public's attitude and expectations on the use of technology, supporting their care and give a glimpse of what the future landscape may look like in Scotland.
