Abstract

The need of emergency care services increases due to health and social services reformation and the ageing of the population. Mobile technologies, virtual communication technologies, sensor solutions and data analytics help to organize services and to develop care paths. The described patient case in this study, concentrated on the ageing woman of home care who suffered from repeated urinary tract infections. The present situation of patient case and the future care path was described and analyzed together with the healthcare professionals, technology suppliers, researchers, and patients. Based on the collected material the care paths of patient cases can be improved by increasing health knowledge, by utilizing better the remote meters, home measurement results, connected health solutions and available information, and by enabling the quicker beginning of the required medical treatments. Additionally, it was found that the existing solutions and information can be better utilized by developing the consultation center of the healthcare professionals, the real-time follow-up system of care institutions, the common user interface of different systems that centralized directs the identification and the access of the professionals to the defined systems.
