The ultimate challenge of PIPS is to exploit the most advanced information technologies in order to encourage healthier individual choices in our daily lives by providing the ‘individual’ precise information to improve one’s well-being and quality of life, to prevent and to keep under control diseases and also to guarantee continuous support to treatments after being discharged from the hospital or to chronically ill patients.

Services are personalized on Individual’s profile based on preventive/predictive medicine, developing innovative technological solutions, ranging from continuity of care to education and impact on lifestyle.

The PIPS technological platform enables wide range of innovative services thanks to: Decision Support tools, Knowledge Management tools, Trust models/tools (sensitive data privacy and protection, trust case), Risk Management strategies, Protocols for integration of smart health monitoring, product traceability devices and location-based-services.

The main characteristics that have made PIPS what is at the end more of five years of research, development, demonstration, dissemination, user and expert involvement, scientific discussion and work are:

  • the Personalization realizing a comprehensive integration of knowledge and processes to provide personalized ad-hoc simple solutions for the needs of patients and citizens with the aim to IMPROVE COMPLIANCE;
  • the adaptive support solutions generating an automatic ubiquitous support for the users anytime, anywhere, in the day-by-day life;
  • the Continuity of care support enabling a dynamic acquisition and assessment of patient information to supply the whole care delivery chain CLOSING THE LOOP of the integrated health delivery, useful for healthy people and for chronic diseases;
  • an holistic view of the personal health and wellbeing empowering the involvement of health professionals, family and individual in a comprehensive care delivery process making the INTEGRATION WITH THE CONTEXT a reality;
  • an approach motivating the citizens towards the improvement of their lifestyle: PIPS has proposed the inclusion of a psychologically based strategy targeting the long-term improvement of the lifestyle through education and entertainment to REACH THE CITIZEN AND MOTIVATE THE CHANGES;
  • the decision support approach making the citizen aware to take Decision because PIPS has created the knowledge conditions at the point of decision for the citizen to believe, think and act managing to RAISE THE AWARENESS.
