Short Description:

The project aims at proposing a scalable, low cost and non-intrusive digital twin platform to support the patients affected by heart disease and their doctors through innovative technologies and techniques to be applied at the edge of the network (i.e., at home) and realizing the so-called home care assistance in line with the PNRR objectives that aim at realizing a new proximity model for patients’ assistance through an integrated approach (One Health) and a holistic vision (Planetary Health).

The proposal is focused on one overall ecosystem based on AI and IoT technologies made by two different innovative complementary subcomponents exploited by two different kinds of stakeholders:

1) a digital twin platform to guide and support doctors by a) showing the real-time and historical data collected by various sensors assigned to each patient treated at home, b) making various predictions about a patient's cardiac health based on the current situation, his/her history and his/her expected behavior, c) simulate the possible effects of different foreseen treatments, d) generate notifications in case of revealed or foreseen dangerous situations.

2) a home care assistance digital twin platform that, through the exploitation of innovative techniques and technologies such as IoT, AI, and Edge Computing paradigms, can support patients by a) monitoring his/her conditions in real-time, b) promoting prompt notification and intervention in case of anomaly or dangerousness detections, c) suggesting modification or adoption of habits and behaviors to improve his/her condition, d) predict the influence of different behaviors on personal health (preliminary evaluation of the idea and the feedback from patients and doctors).
