Ensuring the long-term provision of nursing care is one of the greatest challenges of the future. The number of people in need of care is rising sharply, while the number of care professionals is falling. No other sector of the healthcare industry is growing as strongly as the care market, whose gross value added rose from 21.3 to 36.3 billion euros between 2006 and 2017, thus reaching the level of importance of numerous "classic" industrial sectors. The OFFIS Health research area has been facing up to these societal developments for many years, for example with the only nursing innovation center in Germany as part of the Future of Nursing cluster. Through this lead project, the area has been able to greatly expand its visibility and network within care and is now consolidating this socially relevant topic in the form of the research group: "Assistive Technologies for Care and Nursing" (ATP).
The work of the ATP group is aimed both at relieving the burden on nursing staff and at supporting the people receiving care. Technologies from the fields of robotics, telecare, virtual and augmented reality, and artificial intelligence are being used. Beyond professional care, the increasingly important group of informal caregivers, such as relatives, neighbors and friends, is also addressed in research projects. In addition, the effects of digitalization on the design of work processes are being investigated.
