National HSCP Office Update - HSCP Telehealth Online Survey Results and Next Steps

As an immediate response to assist the work of the COVID-19 National Telehealth (TH) Steering Group Committee, the National HSCP Office secured the temporary part-time re-deployment of Dr. Heather Cronin to take on the role of HSCP Telehealth Representative.

Quickly, it was recognised that emerging HSCP telehealth practice needed to be examined and in April, 2020, an online HSCP Survey was completed by HSCP frontline services.

There was a huge response with over 700 health and social care professionals participating in the survey. Thank you to all who contributed despite workload pressures at that time.

Survey Findings

I attach the findings from the HSCP Survey – Telehealth: what matters to you? You can also access this information in the HSCP Hub on HSELand in the following locations:

o   In the What’s Happening section

o   in the eHealth section which will be live from October 2020

The results are being used to inform the work of the National HSCP Office in supporting scale-up and spread of TH solutions.  To progress this work, a temporary HSCP Telehealth Project Officer position has been created and we are pleased to welcome Marie Byrne and Siobhan Keohane to this role.
