1 MobiHealth - Innovative GPRS / UMTS services for healthcare

2 © 2002 The MobiHealth Consortium The MobiHealth Project IST 2001-36006 Overall objective The development and trialing of new services and applications in the area of mobile health, promoting the use and deployment of GPRS and UMTS.

3 © 2002 The MobiHealth Consortium Challenges in healthcare We have a growing number of chronic disease patients (diabetes, cardiovascular, asthma etc) National healthcare systems face increasing costs and serious financial and budgetary problems Patients (and healthy people) become proactive, health-conscious and seek individual, personalized healthcare Mobility of people in Europe is increasing

4 © 2002 The MobiHealth Consortium Wouldnt it be nice... To have the same level of healthcare while continuing a normal active life, instead of being stranded at the hospital? To maintain a high quality-of-life, inspite of having a chronic disease? To have your health status monitored without having to go to a health center? To be able to give patients the most (cost) efficient therapy and support?

5 © 2002 The MobiHealth Consortium With Mobile Internet it can be done! The Internet is anonymous and global. Mobile Internet is personal and local. Always Online Transactions Personalization Location Based Services Mobility

6 © 2002 The MobiHealth Consortium The dream... GPRS UMTS

7 © 2002 The MobiHealth Consortium Try to make the dream come true: MobiHealth targets Development of new m-health services and methodologies for their evaluation Integration of a generic m-health Body Area Network (BAN) Validation of GPRS and UMTS networks for m- health services via large scale trials Validation of the accuracy of measurements and data capture Validation of medical, social/ethical and economic advantages of the new m-health applications

11 © 2002 The MobiHealth Consortium Trial scenarios (Randomized controlled) Trials. (The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Germany) Monitoring of chronic patients. Monitoring of early discharged patients. Monitoring of high risk patients. (Primary endpoints: hospital and emergency room admission, mortality. Secondary endpoints: patient quality of life, satisfaction and functional performance, adherance to the treatment, cost analysis, usability) Acute and trauma care.
