Better Continuity of Carefrom the professional treatment into the home environment
Better Quality of LifeA Virtual Coach based on personalized care pathway
In particularly, it addresses the value of personalized rehabilitation programs aiming to lead to better continuity of care and to better quality of life by an advanced virtual coaching system.
Against the background of demographic development, the continuity of care from the professional treatment into the home environment becomes critical to ensure the patients’ quality of life (QoL) and to optimize the economics of medical and social treatments.
Therefore, vCare investigates, how data from the living environment, appropriate health information and a regular interaction with the affected patients can be linked intelligently to design and ensure a personalized transition from clinical rehabilitation into the patient’s home.
The idea behind vCare is a Virtual Coach based on the patient’s personalized care pathway, engaging the patient to meet the individual care plan and thereby, ensuring the compliance with the rehabilitation program.
An international team of twelve partners from seven European countries, consisting of researchers, healthcare providers and industry experts, is working on the project.
VCare is funded under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 call SC1-PM15-2017 “Personalised coaching for well-being and care of people as they age”. The project started on 01 September 2017 and will last 48 months.
