ABSTRACT

Slovenian privately owned center for comprehensive care of the elderly has been established in 1995. Its managing elderly care units in eight Slovenian towns.
They will apply for the AAL call Active Assisted Living Programme Ageing Well in the Digital World Call2021 (H2020 Societal Challenge). They are looking for an additional partner, a hospital, (preferably long-term care hospital with already established nutritional screening) where the IT app would be tested.


FULL DESCRIPTION

The outcome of the project will be a newly developed software application (Android OS and iOS) for nutritional screening used in nursing homes. The test/app would detect malnutrition as well as frailty and will help to decide proper treatment of malnutrition. Dietitians are just starting to be part of the multidisciplinary teams in nursing homes and are currently rare, so most of the work associated with nutritional screening falls on nursing staff. This app will make screening faster and easier. It will also suggest first treatment steps (for the malnutrition etc.) so the multidisciplinary team will only review, confirm or reject them. The results of the nutritional screening will be transparent and saved in the app, so keeping the documents will be much easier and less messy, not to mention environmentally friendly.

The Call to be applied for is AAL (Active Assisted Living Programme Ageing Well in the Digital World ) Call2021 (H2020 Societal Challenge).

Slovenian privately owned center for comprehensive care will be the leading partner. There are already two other partners being part of the consortia. The first one is a Slovenian research institute that will develop algorithm for suggesting the plan of actions depending on diagnosis and nutrition status for each patient. The second partner is a large multinational medical devices and health care company that will develop a new, innovative test for elderly, that detects malnutrition as well as frailty and helps to decide proper treatment for the patient.

The requested partner should be a clinical partner from Europe that has access to senior citizens (preferably long-term care hospital with already established nutritional screening) and has an interest in collaborating (app testing) with the consortium mainly in the testing phase of the nutritional screening app/test.

Official deadline for the call is 21. 5. 2021 (21 May 2021 at 17:00 hours Central European Time (CET).
