Health system palliative patients

The EIT Health MedTech E-Lab team PalliCare published the work on their prototype at the annual conference of the German Association for Palliative Medicine – “13. DGB Kongress”.

The developed system enables home-monitoring of psychometric and physiological parameters of palliative patients. Using their system in a proof-of-concept study, team PalliCare shows a possible pathway to drive change in both receiving and giving palliative care while staying in their comfortable home-setting.
