Technologies such as telehealth, telecare, telemedicine, telecoaching and self-care apps have the potential to transform the way people engage in and control their own healthcare, empowering them to manage it in a way that is right for them.  The NHS Five Year Forward View promotes the importance of prevention and of new models in care in designing sustainable, high quality health and care – an essential precondition will be giving service users more control and professionals the data they need.

Launched on 13 January 2015, the NHS Commissioning Assembly’s Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) Online Resource for Commissioners, has been developed by NHS commissioners to help maximise the value of technology enabled care services for patients, carers, commissioners and the whole health economy. This resource raises awareness of how the wide range of TECS can support commissioning intentions and benefit patients, commissioners, families, health and social care professionals and provider managers. It also addresses the demand from commissioners for information on how to commission, procure, implement and evaluate these types of solutions effectively
