Network of Excellence
The Internet Portal for Intelligent Patient Monitoring
aim of the Network of Excellence PatiMon is
to exploit the advances in IST in order to establish a complete framework of
research, development, validation and dissemination of approaches related to
demanding issues of patient monitoring. The core of this framework is the
proposed Computer Aided Monitoring System (CAMS) and its distributed
operation, exploiting secure communications over the Internet and exploring
communication on the GRID.
benchmark applications for testing and validating the PatiMon concept includes patient monitoring for analyzing, evaluating and
predicting cardiovascular diseases, cancer, neurobiology and diabetes. Other
pathologies will be studied. Specialized
features of the the knowledge extraction by interpretation of
the monitored signals, the knowledge aggregation from the physician and the
representation and distribution of this knowledge.
To efficiently implement its multidisciplinary goals, the proposed Network of Excellence will bring together a range of excellent European expertise related to Patient Monitoring and IST. The project integration into a distributed, web-based network will allow for dissemination of information, discourage overlap of efforts and offer training for users, both in Europe and worldwide.
