The Health-eLife project, supported by the EU eTen initiative, designed to promote the deployment of network-based services across Europe, has been awarded ‘project of the month’ status by the EU. It uses doc@HOME technology from UK-based telehealth services firm Docobo. Docobo has focused on two of its products in this project, the HealthHUB hand held patient monitoring device, and the web-based doc@HOME system. The system works by staff keeping track of their patient’s progress and it sends messages to them when they need to communicate with their patients. Every month the EU looks at diverse projects connected to the eTen initiative and highlights one project. The Docobo project is planned to validate the management of patients with long term conditions at own homes. The two products are designed to work together in helping clinicians and nurses monitor the health status of their patients without them needing to be admitted to hospital.
