16040 PHEW (Personal-Health-Empowerment)

Rising costs of healthcare due to the ageing population and related increase of non-communicative diseases urges for finding ways to save expenses by diminishing the need for care and making the current care more efficient. Current care provision is reactive, and process driven, treating patients according to predefined pathways with limited possibilities to take into account the individual needs or abilities. Health authorities and care providers are finally noticing the one resource that had remained unused – the person or patient him/herself! By starting with the primary need of the person – to be healthy – and including him/her into the process in an active role, new paradigms for care become possible. Significant cost reductions can be achieved by preventive solutions to help the person adopt a healthy lifestyle – thus reducing the number of patients – and by providing the person with tools to actively participate in the treatment when diseases do arise – thus decreasing the burden on care personnel. The main goal of this proposal is to empower people to monitor and improve their health using personal data and technology assisted coaching.
