The Whole System Demonstrator (WSD) showed that incorporating telehealth and telecare technology into care and cure services can lead to reductions in the need for people to access services, as well as improving their ability to live better lives in their own homes (e.g., quality of life).
 
The plan is designed to overcome some issues identified in WSD and the project will illustrate real improvements in Quality of Life, care and carer programmes, hospital in-patient stay, and other service outcome aspects felt to be essential. In addition, STOPandGO will identify the PPI benefits for industry and the localities throughout the process in relation to the situation before.
 
By adopting an innovative procurement approach the PPI Pilot will show that the benefits identified in the WSD can be translated from small populations to wider ones, providing for scale uptake of technology and proportional reductions in the pressure on services.
