Abstract

Telemedicine systems are nowadays making significant advances in healthcare by decentralising it, offering innovative services to patients and doctors worldwide, and making medical practice more efficient and cost-effective in a plethora of its subfields. There is although a field that has not yet been successfully coped with, even though it induces a significant burden, both socially and financially. This field includes patients suffering from dementia, as well as their carers, who run the risk of developing depression symptoms themselves and often face social withdrawal and heavy additional private costs. ALADDIN is a technology platform that intends to progress "state-of-the- art" in integration of existing technological solutions. In order to develop and validate an innovative monitoring system for health promotion, risk assessment, prevention and sustainable impact of self management tools and education for patients suffering from dementia and their care-givers. In this paper the authors present the envisaged services of the ALADDIN platform, the user requirements and ALADDIN's functional specifications.
