Despite the growing prevalence of multimorbidities, current digital self-management approaches still prioritise single conditions. The future of out-of-hospital care requires researchers to expand their horizons; integrated assistive technologies should enable people to live their life well regardless of their chronic conditions. Yet, many of the current digital self-management technologies are not equipped to handle this problem. In this position paper, we suggest the solution for these issues is a model-aware and data-agnostic platform formed on the basis of a tailored self-management plan and three integral concepts - Monitoring (M) multiple information sources to empower Predictions (P) and trigger intelligent Interventions (I). Here we present our ideas for the formation of such a platform, and its potential impact on quality of life for sufferers of chronic conditions.
