Design and implementation of a low cost smart system for pre­diagnosis and telecare of infectious diseases in elderly people


Description:

The aim of the project is to build a framework to support the early diagnosis of infectious diseases. The project includes the design, development and implementation of a HW platform capable to support the communication of the pervasive system with the central cloud environment. The final part will be a subsystem capable to support aided clinical diagnosis in the field of infectious diseases. This subsystem will include an inference system built upon Machine Learning to improve decision support for the prevention, treatment and management of infectious illness. Moreover,the system will be able to run in an isolated and pervasive way to avoid problems in low connected regions. Finally, there will be a centralized pattern recognition system designed to detect disease and health patterns in collected data. The main goal of this project is to provide health services and home care by using technologies of social and medical telecare, to achieve a great efficiency in the organization and management of the primary health care reducing costs.The expected results of this project will allow build national central databases to store and record all medical cases in one country to help developing the national statistics that are the brick and mortar for future health strategies. In addition, the recommender system will be proposed to fill in the lack of medical doctors in rural areas and to provide medical care to elderly persons living in remote areas. Integration with e­Health IT systems is another exploitation option that will be proposed to large hospitals,which offer ambulatory medical services. The contribution from Norway will be focussed on the development of the software devoted to assist in the diagnosis using the architecture and, later on, the development of the centralized pattern recognition system. Both contributions will be based on a previous formal analysis of the alternatives, election of the most convenient one and later on, development of the needed SW
