  • The Ministry of Economic Development
  • SIRM: an Italian association on Medical Radiology
  • AICC: an Italian association on Clinical Engineering
    Moreover, a specific inCASA workshop was organized within the event demonstrating the inCASA approach, the technical solution, the services and evidence of the inCASA results, presented by involved inCASA Pilot professionals.
    The full agenda of the inCASA session in the eHealth Forum is available online

  • inCASA participation at the ASCO Annual Meeting







    INSERM, along with TID and REPLY, submitted an abstract paper for the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). The paper was accepted and inCASA project was presented at a very important event in the healthcare domain on 2nd of June 2012 at Chicago. The inCASA poster can be found here.
    The submitted work is focused on the French pilot study and is entitled 'The European inCASA telecare-telehealth electronic platform for the daily assessment of symptoms, weight and activity in cancer patients on chronotherapy at home.'

    First pilot in planning



    The first inCASA pilot is being planned with the partner Agenzia Territoriale per la casa della Provincia di Torino. ATC Torino is the public body with responsibility for social and public housing in the area of Torino and its surroundings. The Pilot will focus on user behaviour, providing an useful profile to search and determine behaviour that could lead to health problems.

    About the inCASA project

    The inCASA project was a 39-months project funded by the European Commission with the aim to create and demonstrate citizen-centric technologies and a services network that can help and protect frail elderly people and prolong the time they can live well in their own homes. The goal was achieved by a series of pilots across Europe that integrate solutions and services for health and environment monitoring in order to profile user behaviour. Data was made available to professional care service providers including privacy protection; day-by-day activity planning; co-ordination of Public Social and Health Care Services; and deployment of specialist community based services.

    The project ended sucessfully on 30 June 2013.

    The inCASA project has succesfully ended

    The inCASA project has now come to a successful ending. The results have been widely circulated and we are pleased, that every pilot achieved good results. Moreover, a very successful transfer of the prototype inCASA platform was performed in the Municipality of Skive. The platform was up and running in a matter of four weeks, and both patients and professional carers were very pleased with the outcome..

    The inCASA consortium thanks all those that have contributed to the successful outcome. We also wish to thank the European Commission for support and inspiration during the project.


    The final review meeting was held in Bruxelles on 27 August 2013


    This website will be made public until the end of 2015. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

    UK inCASA national exploitation event

    uk event
    The UK national exploitation event was organized by CHC and Brunel University on Tuesday 29th March in Birmingham.
    The event was undertaken within a Public Service Event: “Co-ordinated Care: Meeting the Needs of Patients, Driving Better Integration”.
    The event was chosen as a place to present the inCASA project as it was specifically focused on showcasing real life examples, initiatives and best practice case studies in order for delegates to explore how to turn the integration rhetoric into a reality.

    Greek inCASA national exploitation event

    greek event
    The Greek national exploitation event, entitled “e-Health Services: The inCASA project” was co-organized by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and the Konstantopouleio General Hospital of Nea Ionia (KGHNI) at the KGHNI premises on the 8th of February, 2013 under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Health and the 1st Regional Health Authority of Attiki.

    Participators included Municipal (local) authorities, Health Care Authorities, SMEs providing services in the Health sector, Professors, Doctors, ICT researchers, Social workers, Psychologists and the project coordinator Massimo Caprino.

    A total number of 163 persons were registered to the event which finally had a great impact on the audience, on the hospital, on the local society and on the involved authorities.

    The inCASA solution is being tested in Skive Municipality, Denmark

    The inCASA solution integrating telecare and telehealth services will be installed and tested in the Danish municipality, Skive. The test will run for four months from mid-February until mid-June and will involve a total of 20 elderly patients suffering from either COPD or Diabetes.

    The main objective is to test the transferability capabilities of the technical platform and services already developed for the inCASA pilots. A number of completely new devices and services will be installed in Skive which will allow the project team to really test and evaluate how easily transferable the inCASA solution is. The new devices and services include:
    - A smoke detector to monitor when a user is smoking which will be used to analyse the indoor air quality
    - A window sensor to monitor if users open windows when smoking in order to increase the indoor air quality
    - A blood glucose device to measure and monitor daily blood glucose levels
    - A pedometer to measure daily activity level

    In addition to these new devices and services, weight and oxygen saturation (SpO2) will also be measured and finally a video conferencing system between users and a Contact Centre will be set up.

    A flyer in Danish is available here.
