The project had a focus on the delivery of healthcare benefits and support of elder citizens with complex needs of social and health care, and who had a high risk of admissions to hospitals or healthcare centres, because they were in need for treatment of numerous chronic disorders.
Therefore, CareWell used new IT solutions to improve the co-ordination, communication, monitoring, self-management and involvement of relatives in the current treatment and care.
The new solutions were to improve the communication and co-ordination between the health personnel in different sectors and in that way take part in creating a better coherence in the treatment of elder patients in their private home.
The aim of the CareWell project was to create solutions that make the patients able to live a more independant life, provide better chances of the involvement of relatives, and create a more coherent patient experience for patients receiving care from several units and sectors.
The solutions were also meant to ensure a better utilisation of the resources used on care in the involved sectors and a better collaboration among the nursing staff.
