Abstract

The ageing of the population creates new heterogeneous challenges for age-friendly living. The progressive decline in physical and cognitive skills tends to prevent elderly people from performing basic instrumental activities of daily living and there is a growing interest in technology for aging support. Digital health today can be exercised by anyone owning a smartphone and parameters such as heart rate, step counts, calorie intake, sleep quality, can be collected and used not only to monitor and improve the individual’s health condition but also to prevent illnesses. However, for the benefits of e-health to take place, digital health data, either Electronic Health Records (EHR) or sensor data from the IoMT, must be shared, maintaining privacy and security requirements but unlocking the potential for research an innovation throughout EU. This paper demonstrates the added value of such interoperability requirements, and a form of accomplishing them through a cross-project pilot.
