Innovative Open-Source Platform for Seamless Healthcare Device Marketing and Configuration

Obiettivo

The CareStore project wishes to create a shared and open marketplace, similar to Apple’s App Store, for easier deployment of applications and device drivers within the healthcare domain. We wish to extend and adapt existing open source assisted living platforms for nursing homes to integrate the CareStore. These will be investigated and extended with a reliable and secure recognition and identification hardware and software platform to work in a Pan-European context.

The envisaged solution is considerably more flexible, cost-competitive and efficient than current state-of-the-art solutions. The CareStore will allow private and public organisations and institutions to select independent vendors and combine hard- and software from several providers. The solution allows nursing homes (via their public or private provider) to establish an independent CareStore through the general setup of the already existing Open-Care based Sekoia platform.

Today, a large number of assisted living technologies coexist without a common language between them. They have different user interfaces, communication infrastructures and maintenance plans, which limit the inclusion of efficiency-enhancing solutions in the homecare and elderly sector. The deployment of applications and devices are overly complex, and cannot be handled by healthcare staff or citizens themselves, but require support from technical personnel, thus increasing cost and reducing feasibility of implementing new technology solutions.

By developing an open-source platform and CareStore, based on standardised user-interface and recognition technology, where all technologies and devices can be seamlessly installed and connected, we would most likely increase the incentive to implement assisted living technologies in the homecare and elderly sector and open up a significant market potential for this SME consortium, targeting a potential market of €11,5 billion and a total increased consortium turnover of € 41 million.
