The project consists in a software platform connecting seniors, carers and relatives by a computer, smartphone or tablet. The system will allow the management of visits, calls, and daily life activities. On top of that, it will remind seniors things to do (i.e. take the pills, do exercises, etc), allow the exchange of messages, documents, and give access to proxy services (transportation, shopping, etc). In addition, the platform will be linked to sensors and medical equipment (weight, blood pressure, etc.) alerting carers in case of problem.
This system will provide a centralisation of information on user’s and allow easy and permanent information sharing between stakeholders. New software to interface different supports (tablet, medical equipment, platform…) will be developed. The project will be developed in three countries: France, Italy and Belgium, each one in a specific way according to the demand and context, providing an adaptable panel of services. 200 elders and carers will be involved in the development and the experimentation of the solution.
Information about old people at home is not efficiently shared between seniors, relatives, home carers, nurses… The ACCESS project aims to develop an easy and permanent communication system in order to share data between elderly people and their stakeholders, through electronic devices. As a consequence, the intervention of each will be adapted to the evolution of the senior situation authorising more efficiency in the visits and a better coordination in services provision. Thus, the objective of the project consists in a standardisation of data exchanges in order to support senior daily life management.
Expected results and impact
Expected results consist in the development and the experimentation of a pilot able to support informal and professional home, especially the management of daily life activities at home. After modelling and validating technical aspects at an industrial level, the pilot is expected to be commercialised in all European countries. Partnerships will be proposed to professional carers’ organisations, senior associations, public health agencies, insurance companies, and different European networks will be involved in the identification of new partners all around Europe. The time to market is estimated at two years.
