New IT-infrastructure (including smart devices) and software solutions are becoming increasingly important in applications of continuous and preventive health activities, the cure of temporary deficits (e.g. rehabilitation) and the compensation of permanent deficits (e.g. alert systems, ordering and coordinating assistances). In the face of aging societies, the aim of this scenario is to develop and evaluate socio-technical processes for assisted living to sustain and improve wellness and health, avoid stress and enable elderly people‘s autonomy.
- Developing holistic and sustainable socio-technical solutions while considering contextual factors (human factors, legal aspects, organizational and economic issues, technical infrastructure)
- Collaboration among multiple actors to improve the development and delivery of assisted living services considering the perspectives and preferences of various stakeholders
- Improving the conditions for using technology and real-time data in the interaction between customers and providers to improve living conditions, work processes and well-being
