Since October 1st 2019, MultiMed Engineers participates in the GATEKEEPER Project — Smart living homes – whole interventions demonstrator for people at health and social risk.
The overarching objective of the Project is to connect healthcare providers, businesses, entrepreneurs, elderly citizens and the communities they live in, in order to originate an open, trust-based arena for matching ideas, technologies, user needs and processes, aimed at ensuring healthier independent lives for the ageing populations.
By 2022, GATEKEEPER will be embodied in an open source, European, standard-based, interoperable and secure framework available to all developers, for creating combined digital solutions for personalised early detection and interventions that
- harness the next generation of healthcare and wellness
- cover the whole care continuum for elderly citizens, including primary, secondary and tertiary
prevention, chronic diseases and co-morbidities
- straightforwardly fit “by design” with European regulations,
on data protection, consumer protection and patient protection
- are subjected to trustable certification processes
- support value generation through the deployment of advanced business models based on the VBHC paradigm
GATEKEEPER will demonstrate its impact potential by scaling up, during a 42-months work plan, towards the deployment of solutions that will involve almost 50.000 elderly citizens, supply and demand side actors (authorities, institutions, companies, associations, academies) in 8 regional communities, from 7 EU member states.
MultiMed Engineers is in particular involved in the design, implementation and deployment of the GATEKEEPER demonstration site in Regione Puglia, in cooperation with the Puglia Regional Government, Fondazione Politecnico di Milano and the hospital Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza.
