.....system developers need to listenIn the future, flexible systems are needed which are suited for what one really does. Systems need to work together and be coordinated; one needs new technology which can respond to higher demands and meet a new generation of caring staff and provide opportunities for new jobs, which in turn make the work and the organisation more effective. ´Systems must be more intuitive and cost effective´ replies Anna-Lena when asked about how she would summarise the views of the staff.
And this is what the result might beThe Health Technology Centre was assisted by Cybercom to direct its attentions forward and ponder over what future IT aids for home care services could look like.
"We are thinking in terms of a service platform for assisted living services, which is similar to a platform with a basically simple system, building on the functions which one wants. It´s a bit like a modern mobile telephone, which one complements with the functions one wants- a bit like ´apps", says Martin Kristensson at Cybercom.
The work continuesA third workshop together with the municipalities is planned. The idea is to look into whether one can go further with a larger scale joint project.In addition to improving assisted living services, the project will create growth in the sense that many companies can contribute and deliver services to the new system. "Follow the progress of the continued work on the Health Technology Centre´s website", concludes Anne-Christine Hertz of the Health Technology Centre.
