SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital is leading this project, which aims to advance the organisational and care changes implemented by the Hospital towards more proactive, collaborative and personalised medicine, using the ICTs as a lever of change.

The project intends to increase the scientific evidence of the efficiency and effectiveness of digital technologies as key tools in the provision of health services.

Estimated impact

This project is divided into 2 large work areas:

To identify and aggregate all health data generated inside and outside the hospital(both those already existing in the HCE: clinical, genomic, biomedical images or other hospital systems, such as those generated by the patient through on-line health communities, mHealth, etc.) and exploit them with Big Data systems and analysis to support clinical decision-making and research.

To ensure a multichannel approach in the care model and provision of services, making the transition from a reactive model based on “receiving and managing calls” without information of the interlocutor, towards a model of proactive and informed management of the health of patients and the population.

In collaboration with

This project has been co-funded by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund, ERDF, with the support of ACCIÓ - Generalitat de Catalunya.
