Abstract:

The aim of DITIS is to deliver a product that can improve the quality of the citizen´s life. Contrary to today´s health processing structure which is, in all practical terms facility-based care, this project aims to shift the focus onto home-based care, where everything is moving around the patient. The virtual healthcare team will be able to provide dedicated, personalized and private service to the home residing patient on a need based and timely fashion, under the direction of the treating specialist. Thus, it is expected that chronically and severely ill patients, such as cancer patients, can enjoy “optimum“ health service in the comfort of their home while feeling safe and secure. In case of a change in their condition, the health care team will be (virtually) present to support them.
