Abstract: The objective of the IBBT-Coplintho project is the design and development of an ICT environment to support the care of patients in their home environment (referred to as an eHomeCare setting). This eHomeCare environment must serve as an overlay communication network, supporting the patient and his care-team in an ambient intelligent way. Through the eHomeCare network all actors involved in the care process can set up the necessary interactions, active or passive, coverin data, voice and video communication. These interaction channels should be easy to set up., secure, user-friendly and should support the adequate communication at the point and the time of need. The actors that are taken into account in the IBBT-Coplintho project are the patient and his family and friends, and the overall care team (such as nurses, general practitioners, hospitals, alarm center, etc.) The IBBT-Coplintho project has been initiated 1st January 2005 and approved for a two year period. In the second half of 2006 a proof-of-concept demonstrator is planned.
