|Theme / Sector:||Digitalization of community|
|Challenge Blurb:||Singtel Future Makers is a 4-month month capacity building and accelerator programme focusing on social innovation. Singtel believes that digital innovation can be the key to unlock and increase the strategic outcomes for the business and the community. Aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, various business units in Singtel have identified possible opportunities where we can work with social impact technology solvers to co-create socially sustainable solutions. By 2050, the United Nations projects that 47% of the Singapore population will be aged 65 years and above. This will lead to a growing demand for community care so as to ensure that the needs does not exceed the current healthcare capacity. In addition, rehabilitation care structure is typically limited and the cost is often supported by the users themselves. This could be particularly challenging for the underserved sectors, such as underprivileged, seniors, or person with disabilities, who typically are unable to access to such community care at affordable prices. In order to meet the growing demands and ensure access for the underserved sector, Singtel is keen to explore digital solutions that leverage on Internet of Things which can empower users and their caregivers to rehabilitate and improve their daily living activities in the community. The solution should be easily integrated into the place of residence and sufficiently user friendly in both design and functionalities in order to enable rehabilitation of post hospitalisation patients. It should also empower the persons with disabilities or post hospitalisation patients with their activities of daily lives, i.e. from lifestyle recommendations, connecting with other individuals who share similar interests and facing the same situations, to even seeking work opportunities|
How might we enhance community care for
post hospitalisation patients and persons with disabilities?
What We Are Looking For A Proof-of-Concept (POC) solution that validates the usability, functionality and utility of good quality home self-rehabilitation care. The solution should be designed to be elderly/Persons with Disability centric. The solution should be able to provide: Seamless integration and user-friendly to encourage users to practice self-rehabilitation with minimal reliance on caregivers and healthcare professionals. Track and monitor on users’ health conditions and recommend appropriate lifestyle adjustments. Allow medical or care professionals to assess the condition of the user overtime There are no restrictions on the geographic location of the problem solvers who may choose to apply to this challenge. However, the POC needs to be demonstrated in Singapore.
