In the article, two geriatrics-related tele-monitoring projects are presented, both of which aim at providing assistance and care to meet the needs of home care patients by bringing monitoring and control equipment and medical records into the patient’s home and into health care structures. In these well thought-out projects, telemedicine, tele-ER, and tele-monitoring equipment play a fundamental role but their isolated use (i.e. without comprehensive treatments and treatment plans), could compromise the complex assistance service’s results; in other words, monitoring technology must be constructively integrated with a complex system that includes: booking technology, medical/care records computerized management that is accessible (doctors, nurses, social assistants, volunteers), management, and monitoring technology for adi (Integrated Home Care), intelligent systems that can predict, by collecting information, a patient’s possible lose of functionality over time.
