Video presentations of the six pilot sites of the INDEPENDENT (ICT Enabled Service Integration for Independent Living) project

Audiovisual: 11/09/2012
The potential of ICT-enabled support such as telecare and telehealth could be exploited in a more effective way if they were not, as today, embedded in healthcare and social care services delivered in “silos”. Against this background, INDEPENDENT develops and pilots an integrated set of ICT-enabled services dealing with a range of threats to independent living common to older people. Through innovative usage of ICT, current “silos” in service delivery are broken up to allow for cooperation across relevant care sectors and participation of family members. The services are piloted at six sites across Europe, Dublin (IE), Hull (UK), Milton Keynes (UK), Malaga (ES), Trikala (GR) and Geldrop (NL).
