What works and what doesn’t?

Would a High Street presence encourage Telehealth take up?

Created by Mike@SOS 139 weeks ago
I would like people's opinions on this because I believe this is the way forward. I am very naive when it comes to business so any and all thoughts will really help me sculpt my thoughts on this.

It all starts with the TV

Created by stilton54 145 weeks ago
The TV is Old People's window on the world. They are the ones with the most chronic conditions. A device atop their TV can cut down on the number of expensive out-patient visits.
