Tech2Heal – Connected Technology to support the Health of the Working Population in Northern Remote Areas

Accessible and cost-effective digital healthcare in remote NPA areas is essential to reduce chronic disease effects on the quality and length of people’s working lives. This preparatory project will analyze the uptake of connected digital health technology to support proactive and preventive healthcare models for national health services. It will also examine the trade-off between the two and how they can improve the health of older working people in northern areas. It will examine why the uptake of connected health technologies has fallen short of predictions. The key outcomes of this study will guide the design of the main project.
