DigiTV Received Funding for TV-based Telecare Application Development

by Harry Wang | Oct. 27, 2008

DigiTV, a not-for-profit organization owned by U.K.’s Kirklees Council recently received funding from Europe’s T-Seniority Project to build interactive TV-based telecare solutions to serve the chronically ill and the elderly populations. Last month, it also secured funding from the U.K government to develop digital TV-based interactive care solutions. DigiTV is the major technology facilitator behind its Looking Local portal, which broad content from UK’s local authorities through TV channels or to mobile phones to promote local services and information. The portal currently offers health education, among many other types of local information. But with the latest round of grants, it will add virtual community features and reminder systems to assist old and fragile people to live a safe, independent, and connected life at home.
