PAGE Platform for the integration of technology-based health services on health networks


Preserving independency of elderly people by using health- enabling technologies is of high social relevance. To be able to live longer independently may raise quality of life and at the same time save costs for future health systems. Assisting technologies have already been developed but are applied infrequently and most often only after an acute incidence took place. The full potential of these technologies, especially regarding prevention and health promotion, is not exploited in current health systems. Within the PAGE project a technical platform for integrating health-enabling technologies into health networks including domestic environments is developed.  The platform is meant to support a process of continuous detection of demand for supportive services and to provide these services directly in the domestic environment.  Within this integrated approach available technologies will be merged into integrated services based on economic business models.

The following project objectives have been defined:
1.    Identification and development of relevant health-enabling technologies based on objective user needs and individual requirement models.
2.    Identification of coordination problems in health networks and development of methods to overcome these problems.
3.    Conception, prototypical implementation, and evaluation of a platform for supporting the coordination of health-enabling technologies within health networks.
4.    Conception, prototypical implementation, and evaluation of a home platform and infrastructure for supporting the provision of health-enabling technologies in domestic environments.
