These are the four projects selected in 2022

Last March 28 and 29, Marta Cárdenas, family doctor of CAP Sagrada Família and Ferran Aymerich, director of transformation and digital health, attended the face-to-face meeting of the eCare consortium for the demonstration of prototypes in Germany, at the Center of Innovation in Digital Medicine of the RWTH University Hospital of Aachen; where they participated in co-creation tasks and in the evaluation of the four prototypes that participate in this phase.

The eCare project has been in Phase 2 of Prototype Development since July 15, 2022, when the four eCare buyers representing healthcare providers from Italy, Germany and Spain selected four of the eight proposals

Now, during this second phase, the suppliers have been progressing in the development of the prototypes of the proposed solutions while verifying that the main characteristics of the prototypes meet the expected functional and performance requirements. In this phase, health professionals, older adults and their families are participating, providing feedback on the prototype, to ensure that the solution is focused on the user.

After the evaluation that will follow at the end of this phase, the two best prototypes will be offered the possibility to continue with proof of concept at the buyers' sites during phase 3.

What are the four projects?

1. Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH) in consortium with Uni Systems Information Technology Systems. (Greece).

BONVITA goes beyond the state of the art, offering a holistic technology platform, integrating all components that are essential for effective screening, prevention and management of frailty and prefrailty, supporting integrated pathways throughout developing the exchange of knowledge. In addition, it is able to support shared care plans involving multiple stakeholders in practice.

2. TELEVES in consortium with the Foundation for Biomedical Research of the Getafe University Hospital, MG Biomed SL and the Polytechnic University of Madrid. (Spain).

The solution they propose is based on a set of technologies that includes a monitoring subsystem for screening and follow-up, a digitized care model for older adults and a virtual assistant for carrying out preventive, therapeutic and educational interventions.

3. Bilbest Bilişim Sağlık Eğitim Dış Ticaret sees Sant. Ltd. Şti in consortium with Estudis Mega SL and Zadig SRL. (Turkey, Spain and Italy).

SmartFOR will deliver a disruptive, innovative and comprehensive care management system powered by artificial intelligence to provide personalized therapeutic solutions and early care interventions in monitoring, predicting and preventing frailty and health-related symptoms frailty in older adults.

4. Evidence (formerly Pulso) in consortium with Atenzia. (Spain).

SOFI will include different tools to detect frailty and prefrailty in older adults. These technologies will make the solution capable of providing professionals with a tool to screen older adults and identify those who may have frailty or pre-frailty, not only from a clinical, physical and psychological point of view, but also from a perspective socioeconomic

Frailty is an age-related condition that affects 1 in 4 adults over 85 in Europe. Although longevity is one of the greatest achievements of modern societies, the quality of life of older adults in their later years can be worse due to frailty and chronic diseases. This is why eCare is looking for digital solutions for the prevention and comprehensive management of frailty. The aim is to promote independent living, well-being and relieve the budgetary pressure of care services.

In the 21st century it is no longer about living longer, but about living longer and better. Aging must be healthy, active and more technologically connected than ever.
