Adaptability and interoperability of smart service platforms for aging well at home
The workshops of eHealth University
// In partnership with the ISIS School of Engineering for Healthcare Information Technology and Systems
Over recent years, the development of professional services platforms has been of growing interest to healthcare operators, in particular thanks to their potential in terms of the collection and real-time analysis of professional and environmental data related to the patient’s life with a view to diagnostics and prevention. These platforms are considered to constitute key factors in breaking down barriers in the healthcare system, in particular between the hospital, city doctors and patients’ homes. They encourage practices focused on improved, structured and targeted communication between the different healthcare professionals and provide decision-making tools for their tasks. Moreover, they encourage a patient-centric process regarding treatment and empowerment. These platforms are characterized by the heterogeneity of the type of users, the diversity of their tasks and related operational goals, and the disparity between their hardware and software infrastructure.
The use of these service platforms requires adaptability and end-to-end interoperability whether in terms of healthcare professionals (consultation and delegation) or the infrastructure itself (communication, archiving and digital processing). The objective of this workshop is to present the advantages of these platforms, in particular to age well at home, and to identify and discuss specific challenges facing every layer (IoT platform, profession-specific platform) and the coordination of their actions to adapt and thereby maintain a balance between changes in the infrastructure’s constraints and changes in professional requirements (e.g. personal prevention plan, user needs, changes in the environment).
