During the past two decades there is an increasing trend towards personal health systems (PHS) as can be evidenced by a number of subsystems and modules that can be part of a PHS. These include personal health devices, contact centres, medical decision support systems (DSS), HER/PHR, mHealth apps, coaching and educational services, as well as frameworks for efficient and interoperable medical knowledge management. In this talk, we shall concentrate on the current state-of-the-art in PHS in the EU through a new generation of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) based systems which are designed to advance the precision medicine approach. Specific application areas to be presented are: (a) ADE prevention using big data, advanced CDSS, and social media semantics extraction based on the PSIP and PINCLOUD projects, (b) New ICT interventions for effective cardiac rehabilitation in a community setting integrating motion analytics with biosignal and behavioural biomarkers based on the PATHWAY project, (c) New methodologies and technologies (new sensors, wearable EIT for bioimpedance estimation, FHIR, heart sounds and crackles analytics, cloud technologies) for coordinated and integrated care models targeting COPD patients with comorbidities based on the WELCOME project, (d) High Performance Computing Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) analytics for cervics, CLL and CML big biodata cloud based health services pipeline based on the AEGLE, ASSIST and PIPAVIR projects. These are just a few areas which will be discussed. Please tune into the talk to learn more.
