Goals of the Project

Developing customized technical solutions by using high-end technologies in a minimum of time is necessary to ensure high-quality health care for an aging population like in Germany. The research project pursues the objective to support the health care system by an optimal use of smart items technology with the following results and services:

  • Development of smart items prototypes for different use-cases: Miniaturised radio sensors help to improve the performance of planning, coordination and controlling of different health care processes.
  • Radio networking and usage of private, protected cloud computing services: Web-based services and mobile apps support involved parties in the health care system by their specific roles, so that a new quality of man-machine-interaction with smart items can be reached.

Advantages can be found e.g. in the reduction of errors within health care processes, early risk knowledge within the therapy, support of therapy development, interaction support between patient and caregivers as well as saving of costs in the health care system.
