Clinical Data from Home to Health Centre: the Telehealth Curation Lifecycle
This case study has been produced for the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) SCARP project, funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) to investigate disciplinary attitudes and approaches to data deposit. The study looks at the data curation lifecycle in Telehealth research. Telehealth, or telecare, is an emerging sub-domain of eHealth, and the report profiles current practices in several telehealth pilot projects. Data curation is at an embryonic stage but can draw on related eHealth initiatives and clinical data management practices, and the report considers the infrastructure needed for data curation in this field of research and practice.
