Unsynchronised social and healthcare service delivery leads to inefficiencies, duplication of resources, reduced levels of quality of care, and in extreme cases to premature death. Older people are particularly affected by this situation. They often need both types of services, such as support with daily living activities and chronic disease management.
ICT has the potential to support integrated service delivery to achieve high quality independent living and wellbeing for older people across Europe and elsewhere. The conference will look beyond today's care silos at strategies, processes and business models to reach this goal.
Conference topics include:
- ICT in integrated care: from concept to practice
- Service models for integrated eCare services
- Governance and financing models for integrated eCare services
The conference will take place on 23 November 2011 in the Evoluon conference centre in Eindhoven / NL.
The conference is a joined event of the CommonWell and INDEPENDENT projects and takes place in conjunction with the Smart Home Fair "Beurs Domotica & Slim Wonen 2011".
