The increasingly ageing population in Europe are highlighting challenges related to ensuring healthy ageing and independent living. The elderly need to be able to participate in their care and maintain their autonomy. The EU-funded VALUECARE project intends to deliver efficient outcome-based integrated care to the elderly who are suffering from cognitive impairment, frailty and multiple chronic health conditions. The principles of ‘value-based care’ will be applied. This approach will be supported by a robust, secure and scalable digital solution that will be tested and evaluated in seven large-scale pilots in Europe. The goal is to improve the quality of life of the elderly and their families, while also making European health and social care systems more sustainable..
FBK actively participates in all the Work Packages of the project; in particular, in Work Package 3, he will deal with the digital solution using the platform HORUS.AI developed by FBK. This is a digital solution for virtual coaching that supports patients’ self-management of their well-being. In this context, it will deal with transferring end user requirements into digital solutions that can be used for pilot sites with a view to future marketing.
