|Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation
Purpose and goal
The project is based in a Triple Helix collaboration aiming to develop a platform that will measure and visualize data from individual patients. The aim is to increase people´s participation in their own healt care process, providing an easy and safe way for individuals to measure and ensure their vital signs from home. These data are transferred in real time to the caregiver and will then be visualized as part of the information needed to make an intelligence assessment of the health status, creating the conditions for investigation, treatment and diagnosis from a distance.
Results and expected effects
The service solution must be designed for seamless integration into existing healthcare. It shall also be adapted and eventually applied to other relevant areas of health care, such as diabetes, KOL or pregnancy, i.e areas where there may be a need for a regular and accurate measurement of various parameters.
Approach and implementation
The collaboration project´s core objectives is to develop a well-functioning and iteratively tested systems that solve end users´ defined needs. During the initial project period, we have ensured a well-functioning test bed within the Region of Skåne - Hälsostaden. We will have full access to end users such as caregivers and patients. We will be able to define, build and modify the entire chain from metering equipment, to cloud solutions, data management as well as the User Interface and all will be based on the terms and needs for local information flows between the region and the cities.
