Transparant ICT platforms for eCare (TranseCare)01/01/2007 - 31/12/2009
- Type of project: iMinds
- Project website: http://www.iminds.be/nl/onderzoek/overzicht-projecten/p/detail/transecare-2
The objective of the iMinds – TranseCare project is to design and develop an ICT environment to support people suffering from a chronic disease and/or from degenerative disabilities due to age.The TranseCare project wants to take the concept of ‘independent living systems’ a step further by taking into account the specific needs of the target group. The various themes that will be worked on within the scope of this project can be split up in three parts:
- Creating a transparent home environment that offers people an open, interactive window on the world using ICT;
- Creating a transparent data exchange platform that provides information to authorised users (both professional and non-professional carers);
- Creating a transparent network environment that supports domotics and mobile electronic devices.
In this project, CUO analyses the needs of the care team (e.g. emergency centre operators) and the patient, and investigates the user-friendliness of the resulting eHomeCare services.
TranseCare is carried out by a consortium of companies and care institutions: Wit Gele Kruis, Televic, Medibridge, Custodix, Androme, In-HAM, Solidariteit voor het gezin, and UZ Gent in cooperation with the iMinds research groups: IBCN/INTEC and MIG/RAMIT from the Universiteit Gent, SMIT from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, CUO and ICRI from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and EDM from the Universiteit Hasselt.
