Technologies and Innovative Concepts in Telemedicine and Virtual Care | Medzinárodný kongres ITAPA 2016: Make IT EasyComplex management of patients suffering from chronic diseases is focused on collaborative healthcare supporting an interactive partnership between patients and healthcare providers by modern biomedical technologies. The aim is to provide a solution that will enable access, collection, analyses and sharing of long-term and consistent data about the health status by integrated digital representation of a patient. Processing these data enable inference of a new knowledge, assistance with clinical analysis and support decision making for personalised prediction, prevention and therapy.
Together with continuous monitoring of selected parameters it will support the self-management for patients/citizens and facilitate comprehension of their own health status and activities necessary for achieving its stable compensation.
Collaboration based on state-of-the-art knowledge in medicine and healthcare informatics provides vision of modern healthcare characterized as preventive, predictive, personalized, pervasive, participative, precise, and patient oriented.
