Hot Spot 4 On 6th June 2013, inCASA will be represented by In-JeT at The Danish Welfare Technology Exhibition and Conference. In-JeT will have an exhibition stand demonstrating the project’s technical solution and results. Specifically, the transferability capabilities of inCASA will be demonstrated using the results from the municipality of Skive who is currently testing the inCASA solution. The demonstration will include the touch screen and some of the devices used by chronic elderly patients in Skive and visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to try the devices themselves. In addition to the exhibition, representatives from Skive municipality will, in cooperation with In-JeT, give a presentation at the conference about their experiences with using the inCASA solution.
The annual conference is aimed at Danish municipal and regional healthcare and social care staff working with telemedicine. The Minister for Economic Affairs and the Interior, Margrethe Vestager, and former Health Minister, Arne Rolighed, are among the many prominent speakers at the conference. The programme can be downloaded here (in Danish).

    First pilot in planning: The first inCASA pilot is being planned with the partner Agenzia Territoriale per la casa della Provincia di Torino. ATC Torino is the public body with responsibility for social and public housing in the area of Torino and its surroundings. The Pilot will focus on user behaviour, providing an useful profile to search and determine behaviour that could lead to health problems.

    About the inCASA project
    The inCASA project is a 39-months project funded by the European Commission with the aim to create and demonstrate citizen-centric technologies and a services network that can help and protect frail elderly people and prolong the time they can live well in their own homes. The goal will be achieved by a series of pilots across Europe that integrate solutions and services for health and environment monitoring in order to profile user behaviour. Data will be made available to professional care service providers including privacy protection; day-by-day activity planning; co-ordination of Public Social and Health Care Services; and deployment of specialist community based services.

    inCASA for Scientific Communities
    The high level knowledge deployed within the framework of inCASA will be distributed to the research community by publication of the most significant achievements in top quality conferences and scientific journal. The members of the project will write both academic and technical papers, to be presented at conferences and trade shows, and published in leading academic medical and technical journals.

    inCASA for Senior Citizens
    Quality of life is an extended concept aiming at evaluating life with all its aspects. That is why it is considered within the field of interest of almost every scientific discipline, life practice and activity in society. Quality of life is the quality of the relations (active and passive relations) between an individual and his surrounding, with its both objective and subjective extents. Increasing the quality of life is one of the main objectives of inCASA project.

    inCASA for Service Providers
    One of the clearest objectives related to integration inside inCASA solution is the approach for a measurable service provision combined to institutional efficiencies, users' quality of life and cares activities. Starting from an easy and open access to inCASA platform, exploiting pre-existing one-to-one contact on both social care and healthcare topics in order to build a shared service delivery business model, will allow to external Service Providers to enter in the inCASA project, developing their own business purposes without losing a holistic vision of the people involved.

    inCASA for SMEs
    SMEs are valuable contributors to the value chain in the social care and healthcare environment, mainly because they tend to be flexible and dynamic and in addition they have a great capacity for innovation. SMEs could provide breakthrough solutions which can play an important role in the life of the inCASA solution, during the inCASA project, and beyond.

    inCASA Pilots
    inCASA pilots wants to demonstrate how the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) helps providing better quality healthcare throughout the existing or upcoming local experiences, at a stable or lower cost, and to reduce waiting times and errors. The Pilots will be implemented by putting together and involving Health Local Agencies, Doctors, Engineers, Psychologists and all the Care-Givers concerned with the elderly.

    Project objectives
    Ageing population is one of the most important challenges faced by governments at local, regional, national and European levels. inCASA aims at developing a system that will support the aging population and facilitate them to stay well at their own homes.

    Project vision
