The health challenges of the future are changing. The population is becoming older, while chronic conditions and diseases related to lifestyle are increasing.
Through its commitment to welfare technology, NST makes it easier for each individual to take care of his or her own health. In line with the Government's wishes, NST is working to improve knowledge about welfare technology (or personal health systems) and to promote its use among people with chronic illnesses or disabilities.
For a decade, NST has been an attractive partner in EU projects that develop and pilot solutions enabling patients to follow up, take control, and take responsibility for their own health and illness. The patient's personal mastery and electronic communication with health professionals are key aspects of our project portfolio.
Prevention and self-management consists of two sections: "HOPE - HOme care and PErsonalised Health" and "Personal Health Systems".
