Abstract

In 2006, Portsmouth City Council (PCC) commissioned the Centre for Healthcare Modelling and Informatics at the University of Portsmouth to evaluate PCC's introduction of telecare over 3 years. PCC is addressing telecare using the Preventative Technologies Grant, provided by the Department of Health. Within PCC, the Health Improvement and Development Service (HIDS) has created a steering group to manage the project.The project aims to investigate the possibility of setting up the technology and the processes required to support the implementation of telecare. The outline project included raising awareness of telecare so that it could become a standard part of the care package with a single point of assessment.
