The EMPATIA project wants to give the patient and his family new tools to deal with chronic disease, enhance his / her ability to face daily life, develop behaviours that are suitable for managing the evolution of the illness at home, to return to the fragile subject the dignity of his person and a better quality of life.

The specific research program focuses on defining a new NEO model of homecare delivery, i.e. supported by IT solutions enabling cooperative processes between the actors involved. The research implements a co-design approach with the key stakeholders, starting from a mapping of services already in place in the reference region (Province of Lecco).
