Hot Spot 4 On 6th June 2013, inCASA will be represented by In-JeT at The Danish Welfare Technology Exhibition and Conference. In-JeT will have an exhibition stand demonstrating the project’s technical solution and results. Specifically, the transferability capabilities of inCASA will be demonstrated using the results from the municipality of Skive who is currently testing the inCASA solution. The demonstration will include the touch screen and some of the devices used by chronic elderly patients in Skive and visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to try the devices themselves. In addition to the exhibition, representatives from Skive municipality will, in cooperation with In-JeT, give a presentation at the conference about their experiences with using the inCASA solution.
The annual conference is aimed at Danish municipal and regional healthcare and social care staff working with telemedicine. The Minister for Economic Affairs and the Interior, Margrethe Vestager, and former Health Minister, Arne Rolighed, are among the many prominent speakers at the conference. The programme can be downloaded here (in Danish).

The Italian national Exploitation Event was organized in the framework of the eHealth conference that was held on the 28th of May 2013 in Rome. REPLY, INVENT and ATC sponsored the event all day, by placing an inCASA stand. The Conference was sponsored mainly by:
  • The Ministry of Health
  • 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

    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.

    Monitoring Frail People in Regione Piemonte

    Tele-monitoring of frail people can provide a system of tele-monitoring/tele-assistance to people identified by social services as at risk, typically elderly, who live alone or are able to live independently but with a condition that might require a level of monitoring to ensure rapid and effective intervention in emergency situations and improve real and perceived safety.

    The solution has been implemented as a watch able to provide automatic readings of skin temperature, micro and macro movement (fingers, pulse rate), temperature and ambient lighting, removal from the wrist, and heart rate. It communicates by radio with a Base Station located in the residence. The base station processes the data acquired from the watch and identifies anomalous situations (e.g. suspected immobility, thermal disorder) and transmits the information to a headquarters for action.

    The tele-monitoring system also provides a video call feature to support the frail person and care worker in case of need.


    The watch is also equipped with a manual call button and a speakerphone system is incorporated into the product. The project is currently on going.

    Contact Centre by ATC
    Atc Torino has established an in-house contact centre dedicated to management of tenants since 2004. It is the only contact centre in Italy focussed on the social housing sector with specific needs of facility management. In the last 2-3 years ATC has attracted new customers and others will come in the future. At the moment, the contact centre, managed by GETICA srl, an in house company of ATC, provides the following services:
    • Urgent maintenance for buildings and dwelling units calls for
    • Heating supply assistance
    • Guardian Voice elevator emergencies
    • Elevator ordinary reports
    • Anti-intruder alarms
    • Customer satisfaction on completed work
    • Information on Housing management Combined service.

    In the current year, the ATC contact centre has the following customers: ATC Turin – (Social Housing company) ATC Biella – (Social Housing company) ATC Novara- (Social Housing company); ALER Lombardia –(Social Housing company); Exe.Gesi; VPS France. And provides cover to 180.000 dwelling units and more than 1.400 elevator units.

    The pilots at ATC will demonstrate how the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) can provide better quality social care throughout the existing or newly emerging services, at equal or lower cost, and increased quality of life. The aim of the action plan is to improve on the use of existing devices, identify practical steps to develop electronic systems for social records, support and monitor the elderly and frail and achieve faster rollout of targeted social services.

    With the Regional Decree finalized to apply LEAs on a regional basis, Regione Piemonte has tried to increase capacity to existing unmet needs, by undertaking remote monitoring of certain conditions having a high risk of isolation. Here health is affected by the psycho-physical as well as the psycho-social and is a matter for the individual as a member of the whole community. This is applies easily to frail elderly people.

    The inCASA pilot
    The inCASA Italian pilot will determine user needs by profiling behaviour. Tele-monitoring of vital signs will be omitted, as this is already being undertaken by the local ongoing project (but this data will be added to the composite user profile), the Pilot will focus on user behaviour, providing an useful profile to search and determine behaviour that could lead to health problems. This profiling will match the measuring approach advocated by LEAs for this kind of service, where integration activities linked to social and Healthcare Services could be undertaken by local authorities.
