A Good Practice Case The MobilAlarm Project
Validating European Mobile Alarm Services for
Inclusion and Independent Living
  • Supported by eTEN March 2004 - August 2005
  • Testing an innovative alarm service for older,
    chronically ill and disabled people and all those
    concerned about safety while outside
  • Objective prepare market role-out in EU

Description
  • The service will enable users to initiate an
    alarm call with a specifically designed device.
  • On pressing the alarm buttons, a voice connection
    to a professional service centre is established.
    The device calculates location data by using the
    Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites and
    transmits the position to the service centre the
    operator needs only one click for locating and
    mapping the users position on the screen.
  • Service centre staff immediately calls people who
    can help.

9
Service
  • On pressing alarm buttons GSM voice connection
    to service centre
  • Location data calculation through Global
    Positioning System (GPS)
  • User location shown on electronic map on
    operators screen
  • People who can help alerted immediately
    (relatives, neighbours, doctors, rescue services)

10
Device
  • Specifically designed
  • Size slightly smaller than common mobile phone
  • Weight only 100 gram
  • Easy to handle only five buttons
  • Two lateral alarm buttons for being pressed at
    once (simple but prevents false alarm)
  • Battery life of up to six days

11
Objectives
  • The overriding objective of MobilAlarm is to test
    and evaluate the technical, organisational and
    economic characteristics of this trans-European
    tele-assistance service and to prepare its
    accelerated roll-out in Member States.

12
Methodology
  • Verification of regional user requirements
    localisation of technology
  • Three test phases
  • Internal tests with service centre employees
  • Small-scale pilot tests with real clients
  • Large-scale tests with about 40-100 clients in 3
    markets
  • Further tests with real customers will be
    conducted in the core stage of the project in
    spring 2005, allowing to adjust the device and
    service to particular user requirements.
  • Tests in Germany, UK, Spain
  • Development of Deployment Plan

13
Technical Challenge
  • A current technical challenge is that the
    locating function cannot work when the device is
    shielded from a sufficient number of GPS
    satellites. This may be the case, for example,
    inside buildings, in urban building canyons and
    in dense forests.
  • This problem of conventional GPS will be eased by
    a new technology named Assisted GPS (A-GPS). By
    being assisted through the mobile phone network,
    the device holders can be located even inside
    buildings and other shielded locations with an
    accuracy of five meters.

14
Important issues for consortium composition
  • Experienced project coordinator (proposal
    writing, contract negotiation, financial issues
    -gt empirica)
  • Committed industry partner (-gt Attendo)
  • All elements of the value system included (from
    device production to user groups)
  • Intermediary for language translation and
    management, if need be (-gt Telehealth)
  • One partner with experience in an eTEN project

15
History
  • Attendo had business idea but not enough
    resources for market testing
  • Representatives from empirica and Attendo knew
    each other from conferences (networking ? like
    EHTEL (http//www.ehtel.org))
  • Concrete project idea was developed, consortium
    formed (at least 2 independent partners in 2
    Member States)
  • Proposal was written
  • After acceptance number of partners reduced,
    workplan modified

16
Work packages
  • Management
  • Business and Deployment Plan
  • Requirements extension
  • Technical testing
  • Trials
  • Marketing
  • -gt typical work packages of an eTEN project

17
Important issues for day-to-day work
  • Administrative workload has to be considered
  • Deliverable writing takes much time and requires
    trained people
  • For most partners, an eTEN project is extra work
    gt continuous professional project management
    indispensable

  • Policy background

33
eHealth services in EuropeDynamic development
driven by citizen demand
Mobile citizens want to use eHealth services all
other Europe
  • Cross-border health care / European-wide services
  • Services used at home shall be available while
    staying in other Member States / countries
  • Use of specialiced centres in Europe
  • Systems (in Europe) must be interoperable

34
Political targets
  • Mobility of citizens
  • Cross border e-Health services
  • European-wide e-Health services
  • Information about health and possible treatment
    and care, including sufficient information to
    enable informed consent to treatment
  • European mechanisms to facilitate access to care
    in other Member States and information about them
  • Patient empowerment
  • Patient-centred care
  • Efficiency and quality of health systems

35
The challenge
  • The support of mobile citizens by european-wide
    or cross-border eHealth services is only possible
    if similar local services are interoperable to
    each other
  • aspects of interoperability are
  • legal and contractual framework, organizational
    agreements
  • technical connection of infrastructures like
    networks and middleware services
  • standardized technical protocols for secure data
    transmission and providing
  • agreements on structure, syntax, terminology,
    coding and presentation of data
  • definition of the semantic of data and the given
    context and its description by meta data

36
Co-operation in Europe on eHealth
  • Transparency about national developments gives
    chances to learn from others
  • Finalized developments can be used by others to
    avoid reinventing the wheel ? example framework
    architecture / specification of the German card
  • Co-operation backed by agreements on the policy
    levelEuropean Interoperability Initiative,
    driven by the health ministries
