E-Health@Home: Evelopment of business models for a self-determined life in an ageing society / E-Health


Based on innovative business models the project E-Health@Home identifies, evaluates, designs, and implements telemedicine services for the elderly.
The project contributes to the solution to problems resulting from an aging society. The objective is the development of alternatives for those who have been living in residential nursing homes due to health impairment.
The project creates conditions under which these people can live independently in their own homes longer than was previously the case. Starting points for E-Health@Home are current and future applications in telemedicine and ambient assisted living (AAL).
The success of E-Health@Home depends on a balanced consideration from medical, technological, economical and social factors. The team of the project is thus structured highly interdisciplinary manner. In the context of E-Health@Home, the social and economical protagonists of this evolving (third) health care market will be completely and innovatively linked.


The elderly look for new models for living in their third phase of life. In addition, an aging society needs new supply models.

Developing the home as a health site improves the life quality of the patient. At the same time, nursing and health-care costs can be reduced
