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).

  • The Ministry of Economic Development
  • SIRM: an Italian association on Medical Radiology
  • AICC: an Italian association on Clinical Engineering
    Moreover, a specific inCASA workshop was organized within the event demonstrating the inCASA approach, the technical solution, the services and evidence of the inCASA results, presented by involved inCASA Pilot professionals.

    INSERM, along with TID and REPLY, submitted an abstract paper for the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). The paper was accepted and inCASA project was presented at a very important event in the healthcare domain on 2nd of June 2012 at Chicago. The inCASA poster can be found here.
    The submitted work is focused on the French pilot study and is entitled 'The European inCASA telecare-telehealth electronic platform for the daily assessment of symptoms, weight and activity in cancer patients on chronotherapy at home.'

    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.

    The inCASA solution is being tested in Skive Municipality, Denmark

    Overall, the objectives of the Skive transferability demonstration include:

    - evaluating how inCASA can combine health and social monitoring in the home on a single platform, which is easy to set up for the municipality and easy to use for the patient;
    - evaluating how inCASA can be customised to satisfy demands from the care teams to share information across organisational boundaries, i.e. between primary and secondary care and between healthcare team and social teams;
    - evaluating how inCASA can create better utilisation of resources through optimised integrated workflows;
    - evaluating if inCASA can provide reliable instant video access to a single Contact Desk for patients with anxiety and need for advice.

    The Lessons Learned from the transferability activities will be used not only to evaluate the inCASA solution but also to develop a toolkit that can be used in future deployment of the inCASA platform and services. Skive will contribute with their own evaluation report which will be analysed and included in a final report The inCASA Transfer Toolkit.

    Skive Municipality belongs to the Central Denmark Region which is located in the central-northern part of Jutland. The municipality has a total population of 48,356 (2008) of which elderly citizens constitute a large part and Skive is thus fully embracing both telehealth and telecare as technology solutions that can support their aim to provide the same care services in the future as today but more efficiently and with fewer resources
