x eHealth Projectathon CertificateBetween June 7th and June 9th, X-eHealth hosted a Hackathon for chronic disease management, by videoconference.

eHealthLab of the Computer Science Department of the University of Cyprus and 3AE Health LTD participated under the eHealth4U (Integrated National EHR System in Cyprus) team.

eHealthLab participating team: Prof Constantinos Pattichis, Maria Papaioannou, Andreas Neocleous, Panayiotis Savva, Constantinos Yiasemi, Christos Michael, Ionut - Cristian Canciu, Giorgos Adamides, Maria Xyda.

3AE Health participating team: Marios Neofytou, Andreas Panayides, Ioannis Constantinou, Francisco Miguel, Zinonas Antoniou.

The main objective of the eHealth4U project is the design and development of the reference implementation of Single eHealth Record Bank of the national e-Health Law of Cyprus (SeHRB). It embraces interoperability, security, citizen-centricity and compliance with national legislations and EU directions. This project is coordinated by the Computer Science Department of the University of Cyprus.

The team presented the following proof of concept use case. A Patient visits a hospital for medication therapy. By the end of the encounter the Doctor creates a Discharge Summary for the Patient in the national integrated EHR system. The Doctor includes the Medication and one Allergy of the Patient. The Patient can now access at any time and view the created Discharge Summary from his/her own national EHR. The general objectives of the proof of concept was (a) the alignment with the national eHealth law of Cyprus, (b) conformance with IPS and X-eHealth., and (c) conformance with eHDSI Master Value Catalogue (where applicable).

With the participation of 8 teams, the hackathon aimed to showcase state of the art applications regarding chronic disease management area, focusing on the efficient exchange of electronic health records by reusing the specifications developed by the X-eHealth project.

On a more technical level, the results generated by the event will be used as inputs for X-eHealth’s report on the EEHRxF proof-of-concept demonstrators for chronic disease management and prevention. The report will describe the proof-of-concept demonstrator(s) for chronic disease patients and multimorbidity, noting links to collaborative projects and partners.

Coordinated by Portugal, represented by SPMS, X-eHealth’s purpose is to lay the foundations to advance the integration process of the eHealth services features by developing a common framework for medical imaging, discharge letters, laboratory results and rare diseases.

You can access all session materials in the official page of Hackathon.

visuel europeMyHealth@EU, Accelerating the eHealth shift through cross border cooperation 

Objective: To introduce and highlight at a national and European level the implementation of the use cases available thanks to MyHealth@EU, Patient Summary, ePrescription, by presenting the example of the cross-border health professionals as they are particularly likely to be exposed to situation requiring these use cases. Greater 

The European dimension of the project includes:

• The collaboration between the member state (interoperability of the use cases)

• The deployment of the European national contact point in France (national contact point for eHealth)

• The local usage made by the cross-border health professionals (Sesali for the French health professionals)

C. S. Pattichis (PI)

Sep. 2020 – Aug. 2022

Proposal Acronym: X-eHealth

Proposal Title:  X-eHealthExchanging Electronic Health Records in a common framework

Proposal Budget: €63,375

Website: http://www.x-ehealth.eu/

 

Description:

X-eHealth stands herein for a project of strategic relevance for tomorrow’s European eHealth Union. Assembling a shared commitment of 47 health actors, the underlying idea of this project is to develop the basis for a workable, interoperable, secure and cross border Electronic Health Record exchange Format in order to lay the foundation for the advance of eHealth sector while using the 3 pillars put forward by the EC as reference. 

Aimed at promoting a faster and sustainable EU digital transformation, this Cooperative and Support Action is made up of 8 Work Package in which 4 exclusively focus on technical-functional activities (WP4 to WP7). From Generic Aspects to System Architecture and Integration, passing by Functional and Technical Specifications, X-eHealth objective is to move towards a uniform interoperable data-sharing format framework. In addition, to enhance EU’s public health state of play, WP1 and WP8 are responsible for implementation studies, practicality and continuity of eHealth interoperability development.

IEEE EBMS Grand Challenges Forum

Data science is an emerging discipline that will be instrumental in accelerating healthcare innovation and transforming the healthcare industry to improve the quality and cost of services provided to patients. Data science, broadly defined, includes the tools, techniques, and theoretical underpinnings for enabling machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to be applied to large, diverse, complex, longitudinal, and distributed data sets in order to extract useful information and knowledge. Machine learning and AI have already led to significant successes in many health-related fields including medical image classification, segmentation, prediction, and decision making. The field of data science promises to accelerate the applications and successes, specifically by enabling the scaling to “big” and heterogeneous data.
 
To address the research and translational advances and challenges in healthcare-focused data science, the IEEE EMBS Grand Challenge Forum on Data Science and Engineering in Healthcare will be held on Feb 10-13, 2021. The forum aims to highlight and discuss the challenges and opportunities of Data Science innovations in healthcare, medicine and biology, and how these innovations can be translated into cutting-edge healthcare and biomedical engineering curriculums.
 
The forum will have the following four symposiums:
 
  1. Grand Challenges in Data Science and Engineering in Healthcare: Medical Imaging
  2. Grand Challenges in Data Science and Engineering in Healthcare: Precision Medicine
  3. Grand Challenges in Data Science and Engineering in Healthcare: Digital Healthcare
  4. Grand Challenges in Data Science and Engineering in Healthcare: Brain and Neural Systems

You can find the full Symposium's program here.

We believe that the IEEE EMBS Forum will provide a unique platform for scientists, engineers, and students to focus on translational data science and engineering research and healthcare innovations, as well as the need for a paradigm shift in engineering and science education and their impact on healthcare and economic growth.
 
Due to the long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizing committee has decided to offer the Forum in a virtual format only to ensure a safe environment and to make participation possible for more people. We hope you would join us. 
 
Please note registration is free and required to attend the IEEE EMBS Grand Challenges Forum on Data Science: https://grand-challenges.embs.org/2021datascience/
