The project ICT model for improving intrinsic capacity, INTEGRA-CAM, proposes an innovative technological ecosystem that allows home monitoring and follow-up of the intrinsic capacity of the elderly. Intrinsic capacity is defined by the World Health Organization as the composite of individual capacities in physical, mental, and psychological terms, which includes frailty.
This ecosystem is intended to enable a comprehensive care model in which all relevant actors are connected: patients, caregivers and health professionals from primary care and specialised care, particularly geriatrics.
The personalised intervention proposed in INTEGRA-CAM is based on the previous research experience of the Getafe University Hospital team in European projects such as VIVIFRAIL (physical activity programme) or MIDFRAIL (multicomponent intervention: education, physical exercise, and nutrition) as well as on other accepted criteria such as STOPP-START (polypharmacy).
The project has a total budget for Phase I of €2.5 million (R&D&I Phase), under the collaboration agreement signed by the Ministry of Health of the Community of Madrid and the Ministry of Science and Innovation in December 2020, within the framework of the Line of Promotion of Demand-Side Innovation (FID) of the third call for proposals) to promote the Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) in health services.
INTEGRA-CAM is 50% co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), through a grant awarded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation, which is part of the of the Pluri-Regional Operational Programme of Spain (POPE) 2014-2020. It reinforces the Community of Madrid’s commitment to this instrument to continue modernising the Administration and improving public services for citizens. It also favours business competitiveness and strengthens public-private collaboration.
This project will run from 25 September 2019 through 30 June 2023.
INTEGRA-CAM INTEGRA-CAM will allow the generation of a technological ecosystem that facilitates the implementation of a new organisational model of care for the elderly, who, through a low-cost monitoring system, are being continuously monitored by all the actors involved in their integral care: primary care, geriatrics, and caregivers.

The model proposed by INTEGRA-CAM offers an improvement in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of frailty, guaranteeing a follow-up of the clinical condition of patients and maintaining and even improving their IQ.
Through home monitoring and the facilitation of bidirectional interaction between the different actors involved in the system, it allows:
