SenseCare will enhance and advance future healthcare processes and systems using sensory and machine learning technologies to provide emotional (affective) and cognitive insights into patients well-being so as to provide them with more effective treatment across multiple medical domains. SenseCare will develop a cloud-based operating system platform which will deliver user(s) cognitive/affective state data from the fusion of multiple data streams from sensory devices.
The objective is to develop technologies and methods that will lessen the enormous and growing health care costs of dementia and related cognitive impairments that burden European citizens, which is estimated to cost over €250 Billion by 2030. SenseCare will lead to significant financial and productivity gains for the healthcare sector worldwide. Patients and medical professionals will now have insights into both physical and cognitive states. How these states interact medically and potential patient impacts will be understood at a much more fine-grained level by all. Such innovations will ultimately lead to factors such as reduced hospital bed occupancy numbers, reduced medical risk, better overall patient care, holistic insights, reduced financial costs, mitigating legal and insurance exposure, new data for medical research and the potential for patients to play an ever increasing role in their own recuperation process.
