In a significant stride towards revolutionizing elderly care, Tech2Heal SAS, a subsidiary of AI/ML Innovations Inc., has been awarded a funding grant of Euro50,000. The grant comes as recognition for Tech2Heal’s pivotal role as the technological backbone in Europe’s largest study focused on the prevention of loss of autonomy in the elderly through personalized care pathways.

The groundbreaking study, spearheaded by the University Hospital of Nice in France, boasts a vast cohort of 30,000 elderly patients who will be closely monitored over a span of 5 years. Tech2Heal’s innovative Alakin Platform, selected for its exceptional capabilities, will serve as the linchpin in this monumental endeavor. The platform’s prowess lies in its ability to establish digital care pathways, gather comprehensive patient data, facilitate seamless communication, and integrate a diverse range of local and community services, all presented through an intuitive clinical dashboard.

What sets Alakin apart is its “no-code configurable platform,” allowing for rapid customization to meet the exacting demands of the University Hospital of Nice’s rigorous parameters. This adaptability is key in creating a sophisticated, large-scale clinical trial tailored precisely to the study’s unique requirements.

The initiative, led by Prof. Zory and Prof. Guerin, represents an amalgamation of health, innovation, and research. It aims to transform the Nice Côte d’Azur metropolitan area into a hub for groundbreaking experimentation and innovation in the realm of elderly autonomy. This participatory science project will engage 30,000 elderly participants over the next 5 years in personalized prevention programs while offering a platform for companies and researchers to trial innovative solutions.

The project’s core objectives include examining the accessibility, commitment, and effectiveness of autonomy prevention programs, investigating environmental influences, empowering the elderly in their care, and utilizing digital solutions for optimizing resource allocation. Through personalized prevention pathways, the project strives to forge a community of users who will play a vital role in its ongoing development and evaluation.

With an interdisciplinary structure and immediate societal impact, this project signifies a significant step towards redefining elderly care on a global scale. By integrating various research laboratories encompassing fields like public health, sociology, psychology, biology, and geography, the study promises to yield pioneering insights into enhancing the quality of life for the elderly.
