  • Be more efficient
  • Will target support on those disabled people who face the greatest challenges to remaining independent and leading full and active lives
  • Look at each case individually, considering the impact of an impairment or health condition on that individual
  • Easily identify if an individual’s condition has deteriorated or improved.
