Using ICT in healthcare – eHealth – is a promising strategy to improve healthcare worldwide. Every individual, dealing with a condition presents a distinctly unique case, highlighting the need for personalized eHealth technology. How can we benefit from monitoring data and smart analyses to make timely decisions and provide personalized care when needed? Imagine for example a virtual world of eHealth where care is offered by your virtual coach or within a virtual body. Researchers from the University of Twente’s TechMed Centre use the eHealth House to develop such new forms of smart eHealth technologies. In this simulated living lab, technology is tested in a realistic but controlled setting. UT researcher Monique Tabak gives us a peek into the innovations we can expect to see soon in the real world.
