Resumo: Introduction: Aging associated with socio-economic and family changes contributes to the emergence of challenges for elderly/informal carers. Thus, identifying the needs of the elderly and intervene in time are the most relevant advantages of this technology. Objectives: Characterize the potential of "True - Kare" service, while evaluation/ monitoring platform the health of the elderly at distance. Methods: Cross interventional pilot study, alternating "cases" and "controls" previously and intentionally selected those who met the inclusion criteria. Data collection was carried out by semi-structured interview followed by descriptive/inferential analysis. The ethics committee evaluated and approved the study. Results: From the 50 elderly studied, 28 (56 %) had 80 or more years old. All suffered, at least, one chronic disease and registered an average of 4.9 diseases per individual; 46 ingested drugs, 4 different drugs/day (minimum of 1 and maximum of 9 drugs) on average. However, last year, they acceded on average to 4 consultations (medical/family nurse) in the context of health programs; 30 seniors report that such consultations are not sufficient to eliminate the difficulties associated with the management of therapeutic regimen, highlighting the potential that the True-Kare can take on this area. Conclusion: The elderly become more dependent on health care, that is worrying in the current context.. In this sense, ensured the implementation of diagnostic activity and planning interventions gradual/custom mode (related to the evaluation of results ), the True-Kare can be assumed as a tool in managing integrated cases in the informal/professional care, contributing to one favorable cost-benefit ratio.
