The project aims at developing and industrializing a technological solution, called ONCOLOGY SMART ASSISTANT, with the final goal of supporting oncological patients who start chemotherapy pathway, promoting their dehospitalization and caring them in their own living environment. The proposed solution uniquely combines innovative medical devices (central venous catheter for chemotherapy infusions) and ICT solutions in order to: (i) develop a solution for the taking charge of oncological patients undergoing chemotherapy, the management and the home monitoring of their therapeutic pathway; (ii) develop, for oncological, the catheter connected to the solution through the gateway, according to a specific clinical protocol; (iii) support clinical-health decisions, by evaluating predictive models aimed at alerting when changes in the patient’s health status occur and by verifying the compliance to therapy (e.g. proper operation, proper mode and timing of medications, etc.).
The main activities have been focused on: i) the definition of the application scenario and the identification of the functional requirements of the developed components; ii) the design of the architectural model of the technological solution and the definition of the development specifications; iii) the development and integration within the platform, of the defined techniques for data analysis and interpretation; iv) the testing and validation of the technological solution developed.
The main results obtained are: i) the definition and development of an innovative technological solution for the taking charge of oncological patients undergoing chemotherapy, the management and the home monitoring of their therapeutic pathway; ii) the identification of protocols for the exchange of health information; iii) the definition of models and technologies for the predictive analysis of data and for the extraction of predictive models.
