Criteria for Successful Uptake of AAL Technologies: Lessons Learned from Norwegian Pilot Projects

Abstract

Implementation of AAL-technology as an integrated part of public health and care services requires a systematic and multidisciplinary approach. There are several challenges that need to be handled in parallel and with sustained effort over time, to tackle the multidimensional problem of building the value chain that is required for widespread uptake of AAL technology. Several pilot projects are on-going in Norway, involving municipalities, technology providers and research partners. Examples are “Home Safety” (NO: Trygghetspakken) and “Safe Tracks” (NO: Trygge spor). This paper will elaborate on our lessons learned with focus on five main points: 1) User-friendly and robust technology 2) Technology adapted organization 3) Service oriented technology providers 4) Care service organizations as demanding customer and 5) Sustainable financial model.
