The NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement commissioned Involve to run the Armchair Involvement research project in Spring 2007 with the intention of exploring the ways in which public, patients and staff can use a wide variety of technology in order to engage more effectively for NHS service improvement outcomes. Such applied technologies are here referred to as tools for Armchair Involvement as they are representative of the way in which participation can be enabled and enhanced by innovative use of technology in order that communication may take place more fully on the individual’s own terms, perhaps quite literally from their own ‘armchair’; indeed from wherever suits them best.
