What are project results?
Project results are any tangible or intangible output of the action, such as data, knowledge and information whatever their form or nature, whether or not they can be protected.
Key exploitable results are the outputs generated during the PROCare4Life project which can be used and create impact, either by the project partners or by other stakeholders.
Project results can be reusable and exploitable (e.g. inventions, prototypes, services) as such, or elements (knowledge, technology, processes, networks) that have potential to contribute for further work on research or innovation.
Here is a chart describing project results below:
Leader: Stelar (STL)
Outcome of task 2.1 - Fundamental rights and legal implications: which seeks to identify, map and provide an overview of legal requirements imposed by the fundamental rights involved and, in particular, the right to personal data protection and privacy, ethics, and social
It contains: legislation at European and National level and ethical, privacy and data protection requirements; procedures for consent and templates used in the project; literature research on ethical discussions, good practices and non-discrimination and protection of vulnerable groups.
It contributes to: the identification of risks related to data protection and privacy and to their mitigation; ensuring privacy and security requirements of research/technical solution; the correct monitoring of tasks and activities.
Leader: Asociación Parkinson Madrid (APM)
Outcome of task 2.2 – User requirements and scenarios: which investigates end users’ key personal, social, health related and psychological factors that influence their daily life in order to define requirements for scenario and use cases. It also ascertains the views of key stakeholders across Europe, involved in the integrated care process.
It contains: target end users description; representative results and self-reflection summary, after a user requirements study was hold with 217 participants, with implications extracted for PROCare4Life (see study protocol manuscript). Also a description of the different scenarios (day centre, home and rehabilitation room) in the different pilot sites.
It contributes to: the development of all WPs, technical and clinical, by focusing project development on user needs.
Leader: Kinetikos (KIN)
Outcome of task 2.3 System customization and architecture: which aims to specify PROCare4Life requirements in terms of main software/hardware technologies, divided into functional areas (low-level, high-level, platform and interfaces) describing subcomponents and some data security considerations.
It contains: an overview of PROCare4Life modular architecture describing all platform modules, communication protocols, underlying information and data storage models that allows combining sensors and interfaces in different ways in the various scenarios through the project.
It contributes to: define the communication among modules and its protection to reduce uncertainty in project execution and ensure a rapidly implement and deploy of PROCare4Life platform for pilots.
Leader: Casa di Cura Privata del Policlinico SPA (CCPP)
Outcome of task 2.4 Evaluation strategy and protocols: whose aim is to create a specific set of guidelines to evaluate the system from the usability point of view for assessing the developed modules/services.
It contains: The methodology underlying the development and assessment to evaluate the usability of the system: indicators (users’ acceptance, satisfaction and performance) and overall (end users’ description, scenarios, ethical considerations and pilot’s guidelines). Also literature research on indicators and quantitative quantitative/qualitative evaluation tools.
It contributes to: the development of the different study protocols of the project; the validation of pilot indicators that will demonstrate efficiency/benefits of the system and to ensure the trust of users by investigating their opinion.
Leader: Asociación Parkinson Madrid (APM)
Outcome of task 2.5 Identification of cultural and societal implications in the care environment: whose aim is to understand the cultural and societal markers involved in the patient care environment and study the different integrated care models in every pilot region in order to adapt PROCare4Life.
It contains: an extensive literature search in cultural and societal variables in health; characteristics of aging society; country health profiles; country health systems; integrated care systems; digital health and care with transformation barriers and specifications for PROCare4Life.
It contributes to: the development of care pathways understanding differences between countries involved taking into account in the business model market strategy plan; all WP’s with info to improve working practices to prepare age-related services/solution.
This deliverable describes the proposed solution for the PROCare4life sensorial ecosystem in terms of main hardware and software technologies. The sensorial ecosystem provides the tools, modules and APIs needed to collect data from the various sensors used in the project (namely, wearable sensors, cell phone sensors, object sensors, and cameras). Using the Sensory data tracking, data is acquired from various sensors, stored, and sent to the other components of the low-level subsystem where it is processed to track users’ behavioural habits, disease progression, genetic markers of ageing and detect some disease-specific symptoms, such as freezing for Parkinson’s Disease and wandering for dementia.
This deliverable describes the work done with the development of the cognitive games application and the main stages needed to build the cognitive assessment system contemplated in PROCare4Life. Deliverable summarizes an overview of the application and the six entertaining cognitive games focus on stimulating the brain, the type of information collected by the application in terms of scores, metrics and user interaction, and the processing of this information, using the high-level engine modules, to determine the cognitive status of the patients, check the evolution of the patient over time and generate personalized recommendations and notifications related to the use of the games.
This deliverable describes the technical details of two tasks: "Recognition of user activities, including specific disease-related symptoms" and “User behavioural patterns analysis”. The human activity recognition algorithms focus on the detection of the symptoms that are related to Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease such as bradykinesia, falling, freezing, gait festination, loss of balance, and wandering. Furthermore, physical activities, medication intake, and sleep patterns are also detected to enhance the automatic assessment of the patients. Human behaviour recognition provides the methodology for generating high-level implications in terms of scores for motor symptoms, physical activities, sleep patterns, medication intake, cognitive states, comorbidities, socio-demographic information, and clinical assessments.
This deliverable describes the work done in Task 3.5 "Care pathway planning, delivery and monitoring" which aims to guide the sensorial ecosystem, to support the platform adaptability to the different use-case scenarios. The integration of care is a cross-cutting dimension of the PROCare4Life project, that will support its future implementation. PROCare4Life will provide an integrated care pathway, involving in the ecosystem the key stakeholders in the health and care service provision of elderly with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other chronic conditions. This integrated care pathway aims to enhance the quality of care across the continuum of health and care service provision by improving risk-adjusted patient outcomes, promoting patient safety, increasing patient satisfaction and QoL, promoting their autonomy and empowerment, optimizing the work of health and care professionals and the use of resources.
