The following is an excerpt from it:

Vienna (OTS) - One of the largest interdisciplinary research projects aims to make Austria a Europe-wide pioneer in digital information and communication in mobile care and assistance. Linked Care - LICA - connects systems that have never been connected to one another before, ensures the flow of digital information and thus takes assistance, therapy and mobile care to a new level. At the FH Campus Wien, the Competence Center for Applied Nursing Research and the Master’s degree in Health Assisting Engineering work closely with 12 partners from the fields of technology, business, assistance and nursing, as well as science and ethics. Linked Care is funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency as a lead project for the "Pflege Challenge".

An article about the flagship project Linked Care was published in the Futurezone newspaper! Link to the original post in the Futurezone (German)

The following is an excerpt from the article:

In the "Linked Care" project, an information system is being created that will connect all people and professions involved in care and therapy.

"The aim of Linked Care is that those affected and their relatives work together securely and directly online with people in nursing and care professions, as well as therapeutic professions," says project manager Elisabeth Haslinger-Baumann, who heads the competence center for applied nursing research at the FH Campus Wien. "In order to achieve this goal, interfaces must be expanded so that double surveys and loss of information are avoided."

In order not to make the everyday life of doctors and mobile nurses even more complicated, existing instruments for digital documentation should continue to be used and interfaces created. This also includes, for example, taking into account the software for medical practices and pharmacies, as well as enabling integration into the electronic health record (ELGA). An online platform that is as easy to use as possible is to be created for clients and relatives and the health professions.

An interview by Elisabeth Haslinger-Baumann about the Linked Care project is published on the APA homepage. To the original text (German)

The following is an excerpt:

Elisabeth Haslinger-Baumann is a graduate nurse and studied philosophy and political science at the University of Vienna and in the doctoral program in nursing science at the University UMIT Hall in Tyrol. She has more than ten years of experience as a certified health and nursing professional in Austria and abroad. From 1998 to 2013 she was employed at the Research Institute of the Rotes Kreuz (Vienna). Since 2014 she is responsible for teaching and research at the FH Campus Vienna. She established the Competence Center Applied Nursing Research at the Department of Applied Nursing Science and is leading it since 2019. She is project leader of several interdisciplinary projects at the interface of nursing and digitalization.


The national research project Linked Care started on 1st April. The kick-off took place on 15th and 16th April.

In this flagship project, top-class economic, scientific and end-user partners will work on a continuous information supply in mobile care and support within four years.
