The Future of Telehealth in an international perspective
What are the perspectives for telehealth in the future? Come and hear professor Richard Wootton who has a long research experience from this field. Richard Wootton is the head of research at the Norwegian Centre for Integrated Care and Telemedicine. The centre's research covers conventional telemedicine, e-health and integrated care.
Professor Wootton was previously the director of research and head of the Centre for Online Health at the University of Queensland. He was responsible for a research trial of a novel telepaediatric service which was delivered to various hospitals in Queensland – the results were most encouraging and demonstrated substantial patient travel savings for the health care provider. He also developed a method of automatic message-handling used by the Swinfen Charitable Trust, a global support network for doctors working in hospitals in developing countries.
Professor Wootton has published about 250 articles in peer-reviewed journals, of which about half relate to telemedicine and telehealth. In order to document best practice around the world, he established a series of multi-author textbooks on telemedicine, published by Royal Society of Medicine Press, of which the latest
Telehealth in the Developing World (eds. Wootton, Patil, Scott & Ho) was published in February 2009. A second edition of Introduction to Telemedicine (eds. Wootton, Craig & Patterson) was published in 2008. Professor Wootton is the Editor of the Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare, an international peer-reviewed journal. He was the founder chairman of the UK’s academic Telemedicine and e-Health Section of the Royal Society of Medicine and was appointed by the World Health Organization to its Strategic Advisory Group of Experts in the Global E-health Observatory at Geneva.
