IBM's smarter care: Challenges and strategies
In this paper, we discuss how IBM is working with Lero-the Irish Software Research Centre and the Ireland Smart Aging Exchange. The proposed project will observe, analyse and coordinate Smarter Care models as they apply to active ageing and healthy living, building on models taken from Connected Health. We consider these as socio-technical models, extending from the older person's home and family into wider society. They can and will include healthcare models, but will also include further elements such as social interaction, exercise, intellectual requirements and personal assistance.
