eHealth Challenges and Opportunities E-health: Multi-disciplinary of E (ICT) and Healthcare, or applied ICT in healthcare (Design oriented), or healthcare improved by ICT (Use oriented) Who are we? What contributions are we expected? E HE H E- H ealth
Actors: E-health community – Who are healthcare providers? – Who are healthcare receivers? – Who provide (design) e-health artifacts? – Researchers roles?
Challenges Needs from healthcare receivers – Aged society – More knowledge and quality expectation from citizens – Mobility (people/diseases) – Multi-diseases & more specialized labor division Technology push – ICT (Internet, wireless networks, 3G) – Biomedical technology Globalization – Integrity, accessibility, mobility, interoperability – Standards & diversity – Laws, policies, and regulations
Opportunities Can ICT makes a better healthcare ? How? – Resolve communication problems between healthcare providers and healthcare receivers and even among different healthcare institutions. – Educating Knowledgeable healthcare citizens – Increasing healthcare co-operation and team work (e.g., tele-medicine, tele- experts diagnose, consult, operation) – Increasing shareability of healthcare knowledge – Increasing interoperability among healthcare community
Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) for Ageing society Objectives: To extend the time during which elderly people can live independently in their preferred environment with the support of ICTs. Targeted needs: individual elderly person, their families and caretakers (not healthcare institutions), e.g., safety, security, social access, medical and emergency services, infotainment, etc. User centered, muliti-disciplinary research focus (1): – working prototype; ICT context aware smart products, systems, and service; mobility, increase autonomy and reduce the need for institutionalization, accessibilty and usability, test environment, and user interaction
Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) for Ageing society Research focus (2) – AAL architecture for seamless integration of required devices, reliable and trusted solutions, interoperability management, standards, privacy, based on on going work in home platform, mobile communication, sensor network, sensor data collection and fusion, micro-and embedded ssytem. Project should stimulate business innovation involve relevant industrial partners SMEs (ISs or STREPS be supported?) Instruments: ?? Indicative budget: 40M Euro;IPs: 50%, STREPs, CAs, SSAs 50% ?
Project scheme Component 1: A need analysis to identify required devices, ICT context aware smart products, sensor, and sensor data collection, mobile devices and fusion Component 2: Standards and sensor network integration, transition to Web (gateway) Component 3: Design Database and Web architecture, design intelligent mornitering and alarming system Component 4: Test environment: Build up laboratory to test integration, interoperability, reliability, and security of the ICT devices and communication.
Relationship of project components Component 1 (needed devices with sensors) Component 2 (data collection/fusion and transition, gateway) Web Service Other services providers Elderly home Hospital Home services Home care and service Component 3: Web based Intelligent monitoring and alarming system Component 4 A test environment (Lab.)
