Telegrafik, the Artificial Intelligence in Care Services
Article published in the February edition 2019 Author: Juliette Viatte
Specialists in services relating to keeping elderly people at home and monitoring patients, the Start-Up Telegrafik launches their first “Nursing Home at home” in a few days. Founder Carole Zisa-Garat gives us more details.
The Silver Economy sector was relaunched on 22 October 2018 by Agnès Buzyn, French minister for Health and Solidarity. This was when the minister entrusted France Silver Eco to redraft a roadmap of the Silver Economy for the next two years.
The aim: speed up the process and put operational plans in place to broadcast potential practical solutions for vulnerable persons and their relatives as effectively as possible.

1) The 3 cornerstones of the roadmap are to:
- Bring all active parties together.
- Popularise the Silver Economy.
- Facilitate the market release of existing services, making them known to the General Public more effectively.
The Nursing Home at home is a device allowing dependent elderly people to benefit from the technology available in Nursing Homes in the comfort of their own. The aim: allow people to continue to grow old in the comfort of their own home in complete safety, preventing potentially dangerous situations.
In fact, the desire for care at home is shared by seniors and their carers, but also by the State, as shown by the French Act on adapting society to an ageing population (ASV), from the 28 December 2015, which places an emphasis on care at home for the elderly.
Telegrafik announces its collaboration with Telemedicine Technologies SA, a collaborative software publisher in e-Health and leader in the field of Clinical Research.
After a successful first collaboration as part of the 3PEGASE project to monitor vulnerable elderly people living at home and prevent their loss of independence, Telemedicine Technologies and Telegrafik are sealing their partnership.
Telegrafik’s intelligent sensor data analysis platform is now linked to Telemedicine Technologies’ CleanWEB solution and integrates the TECH-Alliance.
Through this partnership, Telegrafik can make its cutting-edge data processing and algorithmic expertise available to Clinical Research via the CleanWEB platform.

Every one of us knows an elderly person living alone at home.
Carole Zisa-Garat was worried about her grandmother and wanted her to be able to live at home safely for as long as possible. This is what gave her the idea for Telegrafik!
In 2013, she decided to use new technology to make it easier for elderly people to stay at home, set up the Telegrafik company and launch the Otono-me service.
The service now protects hundreds of elderly people and reassures their loved ones on a daily basis.
“Telegrafik’s values: freedom, ethics and independence.”
How does Otono-me work?
Sensors make it possible to detect any unusual behaviour patterns in an elderly person’s routine. If they fall or become unwell, an alert is automatically sent to an assistance platform, which contacts them.
Friends and relatives can download the smartphone app and take care of their loved one every day.

On 21 and 22 June, Pierre and Robin from the Telegrafik team proposed their solutions to the challenge of improving the quality of services offered to independent seniors! Organised by the Funding Conference of the Hauts-de-Seine department for preventing the loss of independence among elderly people, this hackathon took place in a context where a quarter of residents in Hauts-de-Seine will be over 60 years old by 2040.
A fine way for Telegrafik to close its 2017 project conducted in Hauts-de-Seine where 50 vulnerable people living alone at home were equipped with the Otono-me service, and to consider future steps to protect the department’s seniors in 2018.
