The National Telecare Development Programme (TDP) aims to provide the foundation for telecare systems to become an integral part of community care services across Scotland. Youth Health Economics Consortium was commissioned by the Scottish Joint Improvement Team to evaluate the TDP during 2006-08. The report provides the findings of the evaluation which aimed to: develop an overall monitoring and evaluation framework that is cost-effective and fit for purpose; assist local partnerships to identify and collect the information needed to undertake effective monitoring and evaluation; provide an evidence base at the conclusion of the project demonstrating both the extent of any efficiency gains to local partnerships from adopting telecare solutions and of specific benefits delivered to particular users, or groups of users of telecare services.
