The goal of the project is the definition of a new paradigm of health care services patient based through the use of Web 2.0 tools.
The work will be mainly focused on two goals:
A. Analysis of the telemedicine service provision model in the Nordic countri es to be applied in Spain
The existing model in the Nordic countries for the deployment of telemedicine services will be analysed, identifying all those best practices that are extrapolated to Spain, especially in Valencia. Particular attention will be de voted to the study of communication networks, integration models, standards used, level of semantic interoperability, ethical and legal barriers already covered and the business and funding models.
B. p-health (personal health) and health 2.0
Activities carried out by the NST and other Norwegian organizations (NORUT, IBM, SINTEF, ...) devoted to p-health and health 2.0 for the identification of user profiles and more meaningful participation (i.e. chronic informal caregivers ) will be analysed. Special attention will be paid to telemonitoring devices, the engagement drivers, models of content generation (as patientslikeme), how to offer a quality service and content based on labels, and models for automatic content evaluation. Finally, identify the late st trends in p-health to create a standard modular platform scalable to provide 2.0 health care services.
The major result of this goal will be a proposal for a new paradigm of health care services patient based through the use of Web 2.0 tools.
