The nursing homes, where home adaptations (environmental improvements) and assistive technology (AT) are provided, represent an increasingly attractive mean of helping elderly people to maintain their independence and enhancing their quality of life. Doctors and specialists are involved in order to provide personalized health care services to elderly people so as to have a better life and treatment. The main difference from a typical health home is that nursing homes are using new technologies and applications in order to collect data from elderly people and create an electronic file for each elderly people. The basic idea of this paper is to use a web application and tablet PC or PDA in order to collect people¿s both personal information and clinical characteristics. Moreover, this application helps doctors to manage the nursing home and have a better view of the health status of each patient, getting in parallel a report regarding the medical supplies needed at the nursing home.
