Ambient Assisted Living Program: MedGUIDE

Start date: 2017 / End date: 2019

The MedGUIDE project aims to improve the quality of life of elders, support the network of informal caregivers, and to prevent reduction in the medication self-management capabilities of the elderly patients, all in order to prolong independent living. It will help reducing the over-treatment and under-treatment of dementia-related medications, archiving timely and proactive detection of drug related problems and distinguish their signals from dementia symptoms, detecting and "addressing" of noncompliance as well as lowering threshold exchange signals (treatment plan) between elders, volunteer caregiver and healthcare professionals and processing them into personalized roadmaps. Additionally, MedGUIDE will provide healthcare professionals in Pharmaceutical chain with up-to-date data so they can provide appropriate medical care and support their elderly patients with early dementia according their needs and demands.

Project partners: ConnectedCare (project coordinator), Karde (NO), Vigisense (CH), Hogeschool Utrecht (NL), Instituut Verantwoord Medicijngebruik (NL), Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (RO), Materia Group – AgeCare (CY).
