FRAILCARE.AI project has lifted off!

On the 4th December, the kick-off meeting of FRAILCARE.AI took place. In a partnership with the Public Telecare Service (SNS24), this project is funded by FCT (Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia). We are developing Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods and co-working with clinical experts in Ageing to improve the efficiency of screening elderly with frailty and to trace the health pathways of senior citizens with frailty, in support for the upscale of the Senior Proximity program to a national level. To achieve these goals, we will enforce our team with a MSc. Student in Computer Science and a PhD student.

Analysis of "High Users" data at the emergency service of Hospital Garcia de Orta

Our expertise in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence is helping GRHU (Grupo de Resolução de High Users) to measure the value of healthcare integration by evaluating data collected from the emergency department’s “high users”, that is, citizens who score 10 or more emergency episodes per year.

Our paper was accepted to be presented in the "Scale-IT-up" international workshop at  BIOSTEC 2020 

On the 26th February, Ana Rita Londral, our CEO, attended the workshop "Best Practices for Scaling-Up Digital Innovations in Healthcare - Scale-IT-up 2020" at BIOSTEC 2020, International Conference dedicated to Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies. 
This workshop was chaired by Dr. Hannes Schlieter, TU Dresden and Dr. Tobias Kowatsch, ETH Zurich & University of St. Gallen.
By exploring the topic of sustainable digital health innovations' diffusion and adoption, the initiative was a great opportunity to present our user-centered design methodology in the implementation of real-life pilots.

TDABC for Knee Osteoarthritis care cycle

By collaborating with two hospitals of our healthcare provider founding partner, José de Mello Saúde, we are performing a cost analysis comparative  study 
between two different Knee Osteoarthritis care delivery chains, following the guiding principle of 7-step time-driven activity-based costing (TDABC).

We were invited to present these results at ICHOM Conference 2020!

Join us at Palau de Congressos Barcelona Fira Montjuïc. Full schedule here.
