The FairCare solution consists of an easy to use web-based software which connects the demand for care and support for elderly people with the available supplies.
FairCare will be accessible via the internet and “app” for mobile devices. The concept realizes a social franchise system to guarantee offline process quality and security for all target groups, especially the primary end-user. The whole project is centred on innovation and end-user participation during all stages of development. By involving all participating end-users in all participating countries (Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, Hungary, Austria) during the development, the different needs and requirements can be captured optimally. In general, end-user feedback is highly valued in the development and thus end-user organisations and their insight as well as their knowledge regarding care, case management and recruitment of professional informal workers is mandatory for the project’s success.
The overall objective of the project “FairCare” is to improve the allocation and scalability of existing professional as well as informal care resources and care related services by creating a network based solution for collaborative future care. That means the aim is to create an online-platform where reaching a demand-driven match-making of primary end user’s needs with the relevant service provider/voluntary network is possible. FairCare will contribute to sustainable care systems in the future.
