Abstract: POSITIVE (acronym for Maintaining and imPrOving the intrinSIc capaciTy Involving primary care and caregiVErs) is an EIT Health funded project. Its main objective is to make available to the elderly population, caregivers and the different clinical professionals involved in their care, both primary and hospital care, a home monitoring system that allows a better management and treatment of frailty, in order to maintain or improve the intrinsic capacity of the elderly, as well as to avoid disability through a telematic platform of services. The POSITIVE technological ecosystem allows data collection and remote monitoring of the state of pre-fragility and fragility in a community environment, enabling early interventions aimed at preventing disability and dependence. The home monitoring system consists of a series of questionnaires on the state of health, and 3 sensors that measure variables with high predictive power of adverse events: gait speed, power in the lower extremities and involuntary weight loss. With this system, older people are under constant supervision. In addition, POSITIVE has an automatic system of personalized prescription of physical exercise based on the VIVIFRAIL program, as well as a nutritional plan and monitoring of functional status. Using the platform's services, caregivers can be aware of any impairment. For their part, primary care professionals receive alarms related to potentially dangerous decreases in intrinsic capacity, giving them the possibility to adjust treatments accordingly with the help of a decision support system while the geriatrics service can be involved if deemed necessary.
