Abstract

We refer to 'Home Care Systems' as the technology and services required to support and realise activities of the network of care. Such technology typically includes sensors, devices, displays, data, and networks, and computing infrastructures which provide the means to collect, distribute, analyse and manage care related information. Such home care support can range from simple stand-alone electro-mechanical alarms installed in a person's home, perhaps to indicate a bath overflowing, to systems integrated into the home's physical infrastructure that monitor patient state, perform sophisticated analyses, deliver customised information to patients and clinicians and support communication among them.
