Protótipo digital de monitorização remota de sinais de descompensação da doença crónica.


The authors present a proposal to develop intelligent assisted living environments for home based healthcare in the presence of multimorbidity chronic patients. These environments unite the chronicle patient clinical history sematic representation ICP (Individual Care Process) with the ability of monitoring the living conditions using IoT technologies and events recurring to a fully managed Semantic Web of Things (SWoT) and Machine Learning Algorithms in order to activate the LDC (Less Differentiated Caregiver) for a specific care need. With these capabilities at hand, home based healthcare providing becomes a viable possibility reducing the institutionalization needs. The resulting integrated healthcare framework will provide significant savings while improving the generality of health and satisfaction indicators.
