Population ageing is one of the greatest challenges of today’s society. The consequences are felt in many areas, especially in the field of health care and social care. The morbidity and need for health and social care is increasing steeply with age. Countries are facing with these challenges in a different ways. Also with use of information and communication technologies. Most known solutions, which fall in this area is remote health monitoring of patients and the elderly. The main feature of these solutions is that allows professionals (and their relatives) to monitor developments with the patient/elderly, without being necessary for physical visits to the doctor or doctor service at home.
This thesis is devoted to design IT solution, which will be modeled after similar solutions in the field of remote health monitoring of patients and the elderly. Solution will enable remote execution of health and social care for elderly and will take into account the specifics of the Slovenian health care system and social services. It will be eligible for inclusion in the Slovenian national system.
