Ivo Ramos Maia-Martins from Atos Spain participated as a speaker on the debate of “Theme 3 Digital Patient - Everything is Technically Possible” in the 9th European Conference on Rare Diseases & Orphan Products (Vienna, 11th of May of 2018) presenting examples of several research projects. The digital patient creation and evolution was the main topic and the examples presented were related with the collaborative care and analytics matters.
CrowdHEALTH project was presented as an example of analytics. Ivo explained that the purpose is to deliver a platform that provides decision support to public health authorities for policy creation, from the exploitation of collective knowledge and its permutation with situational awareness artefacts. Ivo also remarked that with the use of casual and risk stratification mechanisms and merging with simulation tools, CrowdHEALTH will simplify policies evaluation and optimization over visualizations of simulations and outcomes of evidence based analysis of prevention strategies.
