The overall goal of the Finnish consortium in the Care4Me project is to develop and evaluate technologies and work processes for exploiting the information originated from the patient more efficiently in health maintenance and management of chronic diseases. The related objectives are:

  1. Develop a new evidence-based decision support concept, which exploits information in PHR's (Personal Health Records) and provides support for both health professionals and citizens.
  2. Develop and identify new work processes, which take advantage of the new decision support concept and support home care of chronic patients and risk groups.
  3. Develop a mobile platform and related operation models exploiting the decision support approach for personal wellness management. 
  4. Evaluate the benefits of the new technology, work processes and operation models in controlled trials.
