Sustainable Technology for Older People – Get Organised (STOPandGO)
Start date: Apr 1, 2014, End date: Mar 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Description The rapidly ageing population across the EU is placing relentless pressure on increasingly scarce health and social care resources. More people live with multiple co-morbidities, and there are fewer people to care for them. 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 of STOPandGO 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 (the pilots will represent about 10% of a regional target population) to wider ones, providing for scale uptake of technology and proportional reductions in the pressure on services. The project will also show that this approach can be applied across the EU.
