My research aims to contribute towards a greater understanding of the concept of telehealth and to deliver critical analyses of telehealth projects in the light of government polices and processes of technology adoption. The analyses will also consider how telehealth is conceptualised by projects initiators and developers, how this translated into the approach taken and how it effected the outcomes. Ultimately, this work aims to explore if telehealth can fulfil expectations and contribute towards aims articulated in the UK government health polices. This is to be seen in a wider context, for example considering a changing role of health and medicine in the society.
