In the eve of the Conference of Partners of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (27-28 February in Brussels), AGE Platform Europe and HOPE - the European Hospital and Healthcare Federation - are organising a speed-dating workshop focusing on market-ready innovations in the healthcare field. Topic of discussion: What are the most promising routes to take up the digital shift in healthcare?
Three EU-funded projects will show us how they are innovating the healthcare systems of tomorrow, discussing the challenges of digitalised healthcare and how to support companies in bringing innovation to the market.
- FrailSafe - Luca Bianconi, Gruppo Sigla
Better understanding and measuring frailty is done through the use of dedicated devices which monitor older people data on their behavioral, cognitive and physiological status. Such data is stored, processed and analysed on a cloud core system and accessible via the FrailSafe Platform. It is an online platform where families and doctors have access in order to monitor and assess the accumulated information, and a decision-making mechanism which evaluates older people’s conditions and sends notification alerts.
- ICT4Life - Alejandro Sánchez-Rico de Heras, Artica Telemedicina
ICT4Life develops a radically new approach of self-care and integrated care for patients affected by Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other dementias. Thanks to user-friendly ICT tools like apps, movement sensors and a Smart TV, ICT4Life creates connection between patients, care-givers and healthcare professionals. More autonomy, security and time-efficiency are possible today thanks to e-health digital innovation.
- i-PROGNOSIS - Fotis Karayiannis, Microsoft Innovation Center (tbc)
Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disorder affecting 1% of population above 65, which lacks early effective diagnosis and treatment solutions. i-PROGNOSIS aims to address these gaps through an ICT-based approach involving machine learning, wearable biosensors and novel interventions. Eventually, i-PROGNOSIS will develop a software-as-a-service model, including a smartphone app for Parkinson’s early detection.
Who is it for?
The workshop is open to:
- Public authorities and procurers in charge of healthcare systems;
- (Digital) health and care service providers;
- Health insurances and mutual funds;
- Investors in the healthcare sector.
The 'Take up the Digital Shift' workshop will take place on 26 February 2018, 16:00-17:30 CET, at Occitanie Europe: Rond-Point Schuman 14, Brussels 1040, Belgium.
