Italian-Slovene ecosystem for electronic and mobile health
Priority Axis 1

Promoting innovation capacities for a more competitive area

Specific Objective: 
OS 1.1.
Investment Priority: 
PI 1b
Overall Objective of the Project: 

The main overall objective of the project was to strengthen cross-border cooperation and knowledge transfer in the field of e-health and mobile (EMH). Collaboration and knowledge transfer were facilitated by the creation of a cross-border ecosystem of EMH which allowed the joint and synergistic development of new solutions and the knowledge transfer of multiple stakeholders (companies, research institutes, health institutions, etc. .).

Project summary: 

The goal of ISE-EMH (English: Italian-Slovenian Ecosystem for Electronic and Mobile Health) was to extend and improve the e-health and mobile health project (EMH in English, EMZ in Slovenian) which is part of the project EcoSMART The value of the project is 8.66 million euros. The results of the three-year project which ends within 6 months are already very evident: a distributed ecosystem of services systems and data some of which are open to integration or use in other systems the emphasis is on EMH services. By enhancing the Slovenian backbone the EMH ecosystem was extended using Italian expertise in the medical and ICT fields using cross-border knowledge transfer to create an improved EMH ecosystem that enabled the cooperation of participants in the Italian and Slovenian regions: Industry achieving access to innovative solutions developed within the academic world that can connect them directly with partners from the academic world. Academia validating and capitalizing on advanced research in production environments. Patients giving them access to innovative healthcare services and applications that are always available some free and some commercial. Hospitals with ICTs connecting them to their patients and giving them access to patient data in a secure and easily accessible way. The elderly alone at home enabling home care through remote assistance. Healthcare providers and developers offering easy use and promotion of innovative solutions connecting directly with end users. The ecosystem was validated with 6 applications within the developed EMH ecosystem.

Main results: 

The main results of the project were:

1. A platform developed to connect products and services the backbone of the ecosystem
2. Integration and connection of existing products services and systems through the platform into a complete ecosystem

1. The new ecosystem for e-health and mobile has facilitated the integration of Slovenian and Italian partners both in the development and in the commercialization and distribution of the developed systems. The core component of the ecosystem is a platform that allows suppliers to easily add and integrate services and products. The main advantage of the platform is the simple integration and connection of systems from different vendors into better solutions. A great advantage of the platform is the fact that it connects and searches for potential partners in the cross-border area on the basis of the advanced search functions and the recommendation system which suggests compatible products / services for the services and products offered by a partner. other partners. The platform supports multilingualism with all services supporting at least English Slovenian and Italian. For easier and faster integration the platform supports automatic translation.

2. In the beginning the partners added their products and services to the platform and linked them to common products. IJS has integrated a smart watch for the elderly that recognizes falls and allows other functions thus providing better care for the elderly a better quality of life and a delay in moving to the nursing home of about 3 years. It was introduced by IJS in Slovenian municipalities particularly in the municipalities bordering Italy where Italian pensioners find quality care at affordable prices and Slovenian residents thus have an important source of funding. Agreements have already been defined with a cross-border municipality.
