  1. ICU patients & family in Johns Hopkins Hosp will have iPads to help keep tabs on care bit.ly/YNyCTe via @MarkRaganCEO cc @tkelsey1
  2. @Ermintrude2 agreed, sounds like a solution is needed. Best ask @clarkmike he knows about these technologies.
  3. @elainewalton for all #telecare, digital health & care updates & making sense of #NHS reorganisation my *go to* resource is @clarkmike

  5. Well I never! “@clarkmike: ‘Ageing population will have huge impact on social services, Lords told’ gu.com/p/3e2kq/tw via @guardian
  6. BBC News – Brain’s ‘stroke shielding’ cracked – how some brain cells survive when starved of oxygen bbc.in/136sqMi
  7. @markhawker The term #telecare is only really used in the UK – In the U.S. it is normally called PERS. In Europe it is alarms, AAL, sensors
  8. @markhawker Some people do not put the hashtag in front of telecare – I see several entries without it
  9. @clarkmike I think the tweet was more rhetorical than realistic. Have browsed with and without plus a few variations.
  10. @markhawker Telecare defined in Preventative Technology Grant (2005) so heavily used in England. Scotland also use ‘telehealthcare’
  11. @clarkmike You’re right! Many definitions, too. Quite an interesting history.
  12. @markhawker Google search would give more coverage. Remember also few providers allow their staff to tweet
  13. @clarkmike That’s a good point. Some diamonds in the rough, I’m sure!
