Abstract

This paper describes scenarios and discusses technological possibilities for implementing a mobile application to support medication management of elderly vision impaired people. The scenarios have been defined in workshops and discussions between technology providers, elderly care personnel, representatives of associations for blind, and pharmacy professionals complemented with observation of vision impaired elderly. Technological discussion evaluates the possibilities for implementing a medication support application with near-field communication (NFC) technology. The goal is to develop a mobile application concept that allows vision impaired elderly to manage their daily medication autonomously.
