With people living longer than before, but also with changing behaviours and expectations, our society and the place and role of older people in it changes constantly. Care providers, employers and civil society have to keep abreast of those changes. Supporting them in addressing the challenges arising from this is one of our core competencies.
Greater life expectancy and changes in behaviours and expectations are constant features ofour society and the place of older people in it. One of our core competences is supporting care providers, employers and civil society as they keep abreast of and address those changes.
Ambient-assisted living promises to deliver IT systems and services that support ageing well, at home, in the community and at work. We offer a wide range of services for the AAL field, including requirements analysis, user-centred design approaches, market studies and strategic planning.
Making sustainable care services work means finding answers to many critical questions. From user requirements analysis, process design and technological concepts to evaluation and business model development, we have both the tools and the experience needed for successful service implementation.
Care provision is often siloed, leading to reduced outcomes, dissatisfaction, inefficiencies or increased system burden. With our expertise and knowledge we help streamlining service delivery through the use of ICT to achieve better care.
Reliable evidence is key to real-life implementation and mainstreaming of eCare services and applications. With our knowledge and expertise in qualitative and quantitative study design, data collection and analysis, we support evidence-based decision-making and sustainable service implementation.
Introducing ICT into care services affects stakeholders in many ways, impacting on daily life, work processes, and revenue streams. ASSIST, our approach to socio-economic assessment, can capture all these impacts and apply them to strategic decision making at all levels.
In the employment domain, ageing presents some unique opportunities and challenges for employees, companies and society at large. We support innovation in harnessing the potential and addressing the risks at all levels, from policy making to adapting workflows in organisations.
