CAREPATH proposes an ICT-based solution for the optimization of clinical practice in the treatment and management of multimorbid patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment or mild dementia. Such solution is targeting a more complex multi-morbidity scenario and follows an integrated patient-centered approach, in order to develop a flexible and modular system to deliver a best care, adapted framework for increasing the independence and Quality of Life (QoL) of multimorbid patients with dementia.  

CAREPATH will provide a holistic environment that efficiently addresses multimorbidity and dementia challenges in elderly population by delivering three complementary components:

  • Home and Health Monitoring platform integrated with Advanced Early Warning Smart Decision Tools, providing environment aware services with natural and comfortable interfaces for older adults for continuously collecting real time data for early detection of onset and changes in functioning, autonomy, underlying cognitive and physiological functions and to derive dementia profiles and intrinsic capacity of these patients,
  • Patient Empowerment Platform providing personalized assistance to the patients, guidance and reminders about care plan goals and activities, present educational materials for reinforcing treatment adherence; collect feedback from the patients via Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) for carrying out geriatric assessments,
  • Adaptive Integrated Care Platform, enabling implementation of adaptive care plans for managing multi-morbidity based on evidence based clinical guidelines but prioritizing and reconciling them with the help of clinical decision support systems processing patient’s most recent context from the home monitoring environment (derived dementia profile and intrinsic capacity, behavioral change patterns) and also from Electronic Health Records (EHRs) for calculating risk scores for comorbidities  and monitor disease progression and intervention effects and  tackling polypharmacy management.
Our Role

SRDC will deliver the ‘Adaptive Integrated Care Platform supported with Clinical Decision Support Systems via Task 4.5, and Patient Empowerment Platform via Task 4.4. SRDC will lead Task 4.3 for building the security and privacy mechanisms for CAREPATH Project. Finally, SRDC will lead Task 3.4 Providing smart early warning decision support tools as Clinical Decision Support Services.
