Patient@home – Future Welfare Technological Solutions

Patient@home is public-private collaboration project between healthcare personnel, patients, private companies and research institutions. The partners have joined forces to optimise the course of treatment in the Danish hospital service by linking traditional therapy with technology-supported home monitoring, care and rehabilitation.

The project’s solutions will support the necessary development in the health sector towards more ambulant treatments and outlays for the patient’s own home with the appropriate follow-up.

The goal is concrete products
The goal at the end of the project is to have developed technological welfare products for the market. These technologies will both minimise the pressure on hospital resources and increase the patient’s active involvement and motivation to take responsibility for their own health.

The focus of the project – close collaboration between healthcare personnel, patients, private companies and research institutions – ensures that the products meet the user’s specific needs. Simultaneously, it means that all results are based on the latest research, knowledge from companies plus the business plans from hospitals and municipalities.
