Patient empowerment supported by semantic social media and assistive health services
T 012, 28/09/2010 (09:00-10:30)
Technologically enhanced patient empowerment (TEPE) can boost patients’ ability to control their health issues.
The importance of TEPE, especially in relation to chronic diseases and their management, underlines why such empowerment must be incorporated into the patient's daily life and why advanced technological systems for TEPE are crucial. These future systems include assistive health services to monitor individual health status and activities, personal health records for maintaining their electronic and lifelong health history, and semantic social media that allow patients to manage their social relationships. All interested parties, such as providers of healthcare and technological systems, are invited to develop ideas and pilot projects for public healthcare applications and services. Together with e-health experts, they will also assess the potential and risks of TEPE.
