Abstract

Recent technology research and implementation initiatives have aimed to ensure equivalent healthcare access and outcomes for people living in remote and rural areas to those obtained by urban residents. This short paper describes three projects undertaken in the Highlands of Scotland at the Centre for Rural Health before moving on to discuss potential future research ideas generated by an interactive workshop.
