Scotland is delighted to be a successful applicant for the Digital Health Europe (https://digitalhealtheurope.eu/) funded Twinning project that will focus on Digital Telecare.
The objective of the Twinning programme is to support the transfer of innovative good practice essential to the deployment of digitally enabled solutions for health and care. The Digital Telecare Twinning involves 3 regions – Andalusia, Spain; Agder Region, Norway; and Scotland – that will undertake focused knowledge exchange activities over a 6-month period, bringing relevant experts together to share good practice, practical tools and implementation guidance on the topic of Digital Telecare.
The Scottish Government’s Digital Health and Care Directorate is the co-ordinator of the twinning project and it will work with the Digital Office for Scottish Local Government to share good practice from Scotland with the University of Agder (Norway), Grimstad Kommune (Norway) and the Agency for Social Services and Dependency of Andalusia (Spain).
