Abstract:In the next few decades one of the main problems to deal with in Western Europe is the aging of the population. More people will need healthcare services, while there are fewer people to provide these services. Telehomecare services like telemonitoring can provide a cost-effective means to save valuable healthcare service time by monitoring body functions from a distance. In this paper a business model is presented for implementing telemonitoring. This business model consists of a service domain, technical domain, organisation domain and financial domain. From this business model we can conclude that by using one flexible infrastructure for multiple telemonitoring services, infrastructure costs can be shared among multiple services. A partnership between homecare organization, central contact centre and supplier of monitoring devices and Wireless Sensor Network providers is required for telemonitoring provisioning.
