Research Project:
Personalized information platform for life and health services PIPS
Research Areas
  • Processing and signal analysis
The PIPS project will make a significant step forward in the processes for healthcare (HC) delivery to the European Public by means of creating a new Health and Life Knowledge and Services Support Environment. This will improve current HC delivery models while creating possibilities for HC professionals to get access to relevant-updated medical knowledge and the European citizens to choose healthier lifestyles. The objective is to encompass the entire set of business processes, professional practices, and products applied to the analysis and preservation of the citizen's well-being using the latest innovations in ICT. The project joins HC suppliers, citizens, public organizations, food/drug industry and services, researchers, and health related policy makers, that are affected by the health status of individuals and the population, to create a dynamic knowledge environment that nourishes the system, and gives added value feedback for personalised and contextualized knowledge and services to improve the European public's welfare. In the PIPS scenario each actor is a supplier and receiver of personalised knowledge. This includes both explicit and implicit knowledge management based on traditional and new approaches to knowledge discovery out from current medical practice, evidence based medicine, and disparate knowledge sources from health/nutrition domains. PIPS results will enable:  HC Professionals to deliver just-in-time personalised and prevention-focused HC services compliant with the Citizen's personal health state, preferences and ambient conditions  Citizens to make informed decisions about therapies and nutrition at any time/place according to the real-time evaluation of their health state  HC Authorities to improve risk management of HC systems  Actors in the HC delivery value chain to get access to and generate valuable information, assuring the global sustainability of the system.
