ICT4Life PROJECT

Alejandro
A few words from the project Coordinator

We warmly welcome you to the ICT4Life project website! There are only a few initiatives in the past that, employing user-friendly ICT tools, dealt so close with people with cognitive impairments at early or intermediate stages. However, most of the solutions proposed up to now for monitoring older people at home rely on the detection of a limited set of risks, sending an alert only when a recognizable problem is identified. ICT4Life wants to shift from a reactive service delivery to a real proactive, preventive and patient-centred model of integrated care by enabling users’ education and empowerment”.

Director of eHealth at Artica Telemedicina and ICT4Life Project Coordinator

On behalf of the ICT4Life Consortium.
