Worcestershire's county council has said it plans to make savings of £4 million by implementing a new telehealth service.

A business case published by the council said the first stage of the project would involve identifying 1,000 patients and recruit them to the service in the first year, followed by another 1,000 in the following year.

The next stage would involve the service being rolled out to 10,000 patients over a five year period.

Charles Huntington, the council’s assistive technology programme manager, told EHI: "We are seeking a risk sharing arrangement with our managed service provider, where payments are based on delivery of benefits both in terms of patients and also financially."
