Major Project Components and Service Flow
Well-being Survey and Centre-based Programmes
CUHK has designed the well-being survey as a digitalised rapid tool to detect health and social needs of elderly members of community elderly centres, which allows older people to understand their health and for elderly centres to provide targeted and evidence-based health promotion programmes in social setting.
Well-being survey for elderly persons on:
Functional and psychological health
The use of health services and medication
Health data transfer by cloud technology for follow-up
Health Promotion Programmes at Elderly Centres
Health Promotion Programmes on:
Telecare Programme and Nursing Support
The telecare programme has shown a significant impact on empowering self-management and improving health conditions of older people in the first three years. To further enhance the effectiveness of the model, CUHK will develop a nursing support protocol to further empower older people with self-management capacity, particularly on chronic disease management.
*Telecare programme and nursing support are implemented in 80 elderly centres
Elderly participants to log in to the eHealth station at elderly centres with smart cards and take regular measurement of blood pressure, blood glucose and weight at the station
Health data transfer to the call centre by cloud technology for proactive monitoring and follow up
Health workers / nurses to make caring calls
Nurse to adopt risk stratification approach to provide support on chronic disease management through on-site visits and telecare service with nursing support protocol

Digital Health Devices and Portal
To promote digital health, different digital health devices will be installed at the elderly centres. Together with the digital health portal and mobile app developed by CUHK, elderly and their respective centres can keep track of their health status and health activities. Such instant feedback of health data will further empower older people to manage their own health and motivate them to engage in healthy lifestyle. In addition, CUHK will work on data collection and aggregation for health analytics.
#Digital health devices and portal are implemented in 20 elderly centres/service units.
