Experts from across Northern Ireland gathered this week to mark the success of the Telemonitoring NI service. The service, which is being provided by the TF3 Consortium in conjunction with the five health and social care trusts, is designed to transform patient care across Northern Ireland by enabling better control over their health and improving care outcomes, and has benefitted 1,500 patients to date.

Health Minister Edwin Poots said: “Telemonitoring NI continues to grow and expand. To date the service has benefitted around 1,500 patients in Northern Ireland with long-term conditions, helping them to better manage their health.

“Telemonitoring NI is an excellent example of how the Health Service can innovate using modern technology to deliver a better service for our patients.”
