The EU-funded SmartCare project aims to define a common set of standard functional specifications for an open ICT platform enabling the delivery of integrated care to older European citizens. A total of 24 regions and their key stakeholders will define a comprehensive set of integration building blocks around the challenges of data-sharing, coordination and communication. Ten regions, among them Friuli Venezia Giulia in Italy, will then pilot integrated health & social services to combat a range of threats to independent living commonly faced by older people while the other will prepare for early adoption.
