Kwido, our multidevice telecare platform to care for the elderly and dependents has been selected to go through to Phase 2 of the European FICHe accelerator programme.

The aim of the European programme FICHe (Future Internet Challenge eHealth) is to accelerate European SMEs and start-ups which are developing innovative applications in the field of eHealth using FIWARE technology.

The idea behind FICHe is that only the most promising and innovative proposals in the whole of Europe which meet the programme’s requirements are selected by the External Independent Review Committee (EIRC) to continue in the accelerator programme.

From more than 300 European eHealth companies that took up the FICHe challenge, 80 went through to the first phase and only the 40 most competent proposals have been selected as finalists of the acceleration programme.

The selection criteria are based on technical excellence, the eHealth solution itself and the team. Gaining this recognition is proof of everything we have achieved thanks to the hard work of the whole team at Ideable Solutions, and the progress and milestones already achieved by Kwido in the Spanish and European markets.

The FIWARE platform brings together a set of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), which are simple yet powerful and which enable Intelligent Applications to be developed in various vertical sectors. What’s more, these API specifications are public and royalty-free.

We are working on including FIWARE in Kwido with the aim of implementing a more scalable and expandable platform. We also wish to analyse all monitoring data using Big Data techniques and architecture and to integrate the platform with new sensors and existing wearables (IoT). Furthermore, our aim is for the mobile application to have even more presence on our platform for the care of the elderly and dependents.

In short, the FIWARE platform is simplifying complex processes and accelerating Kwido’s development.

As part of this phase of FICHe, we are honoured to have the chance to present Kwido to the members of the European Commission at the annual eHealth forum, which takes place from 11-13 May in Riga, Latvia.

Stay tuned for further updates!
