CCG reviews cost-effectiveness of flagship telehealth scheme


Costs are rapidly coming down. One can now get WiFi Blood Pressure monitors and scales from Blipcare for $100-150 each. All one needs is WiFi at home (or they can get it from BT or Vodaphone). Followup can be done via automated calls for a very nominal cost per month. This design is about 90% below the costs of WSD - making costs for quality adjusted life year affordable!
