The aims of the thesis ‘Economic issues associated with the Operation and Evaluation of Telemedicine Services’ are: firstly, to conduct a cost-consequences analysis of two referral modes in providing specialist advice for foetal cardiology; secondly, to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis of a screening service with telemedicine versus a screening service without telemedicine in foetal cardiology and finally to address some of the economic issues relating to telemedicine services such as selection bias, patient costs, and the calculation of QALYs.
