This European FP7 project ‘Personal Health Systems Foresight’ has the objective to provide a forum for long-term coordination and strategic guidance across different PHS areas of application such as chronic disease management, life-style management, independent living and emergency services.

We bring these different streams closer together through sharing, commenting and assessing VISIONS ON PHS FUTURES. Visions can be totally new creations or they can build on others’ work and include respective references. Share your vision, get connected with the PHS community and influence on EU policy! http://www.phsforesight.eu

The project is run by Austrian Institute of Technology (Austria), The University of Manchester (UK) and Impetu Solutions (Spain).

Introduction to Personal Health Systems Foresight

  1. 1. PHS Foresight: Scenarios Workshop University of Manchester, June 13-14, 2013 Laura Pombo-Juárez & Totti Könnölä Impetu Solutions Introduction
  2. 2. Key Messages • PHS Foresight o Networking and Strategic Policy Guidance • PHS & State-of-the-Art o Opportunies accross many areas of work • Insights from Interviews o Towards New Systemic Approaches • Envisioning PHS futures o Online Community Building for International Coordination
  3. 3. Personal Health Systems Foresight • State-of-the-Art Analyses o R&D cooperation o User perspectives o Market conditions • Online Community o Sharing, commenting and assessing PHS visions o Networking o International collaboration • Scenarios and Roadmaps o Future trajectories, threats and opportunities www.phsforesight.eu
  4. 4. Personal Health Systems As defined in the PHS Foresight: • Ambient, wearable and/or in-body devices, which acquire, monitor and communicate physiological and other health-related data • Intelligent processing of the acquired information (data analytics), and coupling it with expert biomedical knowledge and in some cases, knowledge of social circumstances and living conditions • Action based on the processing of acquired information, either applied to the individuals being monitored, or to health practice more generally, concerning information provision and/or more active engagement in anything from disease and disability prevention (for example through diet and lifestyle management) to diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.

  6. 6. Some Insights from Interviews
  7. 7. Streamlining the System “There is a need to streamline daily life, technological expertise, home and community engagement and reimbursement programmes.” Peter Veltink, Chair Biomedical Signals and Systems, University of Twente “Technologies are quite advanced; the main problem is the embeddedness in the services systems. The institutional environment needs to be changed for the use of PHS. The health insurance companies, regulations and so worth create major barriers.” Daniel Bieber, Geschäftsführer und Wissenschaftlicher Leiter Institut für Sozialforschung und Sozialwirtschaft (iso) e.V.
  8. 8. Barriers to PHS “There are three relevant barriers: 1. Peer regulatory aspects; Politicians are facing the problem which have two sides; benefits and risks related to sharing of information. This is a fundamental problem in all e-health. 2. Data ownership; where the data is stored and who has access to it. 3. The verification of the safety of the device. Software as a medical device; the new directive on certification and testing?” Marco Viceconti, Professor of Biomechanics at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield
  9. 9. Barriers and Opportunities in Hospitals “Hospitals would need to change their business models to engage seriously in PHS, this seems to be often difficult to happen.” Rainer Guenzler, HSG-IMIT Institut für Mikro- und Informationstechnik der Hahn Schickard-Gesellschaft “The management of operational entities such as hospitals seem to have key role in promoting and the implementation of PHS.” Jack Smith, Tech Foresight Collaborative Insights
  10. 10. New Services with Scalability “We are often replicating the existing system when we should be thinking differently and come up with really new systems.” Anne Moen, Professor, Institute of health and society, University of Oslo “… focus on how the technology and healthcare are evolving. PHS technology enables new services. The potential of PHS is in scalability and this calls for new ways of arranging how remote patient monitoring / chronic care management / etc. services are organized and reimbursed.” Niilo Saranummi, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland
  11. 11. Further Coordination “The integration of different data sources is increasingly important – this should be addressed by Horizon 2020.” Marco Viceconti, Professor of Biomechanics at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield “Technologies are widely available but they are not accepted in most of the member states. There is a need for further coordination and efforts to apply PHS.” Rainer Guenzler, HSG-IMIT Institut für Mikro- und Informationstechnik der Hahn Schickard-Gesellschaft
  12. 12. Envisioning PHS Futures Online Community Building for International Coordination
  13. 13. Share Your Vision on PHS Can you imagine a sort of personal health system that could be in operation in Europe by the year 2030? • Services, products and/or technologies • User perspectives and implications to healthcare professional • Political, legal, and institutional framework conditions www.phsforesight.eu “Sign in, share your vision and get connected with the growing PHS community!”
  14. 14. 2030 Visions on PHS Futures
  15. 15. Engage with the Growing PHS Community www.phsforesight.eu
