Telecommunications-based Home-Care Services for European Citizens

Project in the Framework of the Trans-European Network Initiative - TEN - TELECOM 1998

The overall objectives of TEN-CARE are:

The approach includes supporting transitions between home-based care and hospital or other institutional care, providing for patients as complete a continuity of care as practicable, removing for healthcare providers extremely costly duplication of effort at transitions, enabling low-cost and effective care delivery, and developing new business for cable and other network service providers.

The consortium consists of major providers of social and health-care services and leading telecommunications service providers, supported by specialist consultants and development groups.

WRC is leading Workpackage One – User Requirements Definition. Further details of the activities and output of workpackage one can be found on the TEN-CARE website.
