Andy Murray joins forces to promote digital health

Two time winner of Wimbledon Andy Murray has teamed up with a body leading the development and promotion of digital healthcare across Scotland.

Mr Murray will work in partnership with the Digital Health & Care Institute (DHI) for five years to promote the use of technology to provide more efficient and effective health and care services.

These include a “virtual hospice” which allows terminally ill patients in remote areas to access support from the Highland Hospice in Inverness from their homes. The technology, developed by Scottish company openbrolly, is aimed at developing a scheme whereby the elderly can remain in their homes for longer.
