Cloud Applications on allergy and airborne diseases vulnerability by Pankaj Rahi

  1. 1. 1 Cloud Applications on Airborne Allergies and Asthma Diseases Vulnerability Pankaj Rahi1, Dr. Rohit Bajaj2, Dr. S.P. Sood3 1 Ph. D Research Scholar, Chandigarh University, Mohali (PB) India 2 Associate Professor, Chandigarh University, Mohali (PB) India 3 Head, Health Informatics, C-DAC, Mohali(PB) India
  2. 2. 2 OUTLINE OF PRESENTATION • Introduction • Goal and Objectives • Cloud Applications on Airborne Allergies and Asthma Diseases Vulnerability • Expected benefits • References
  3. 3. 3 INTRODUCTION • Environmental factors and air quality (out-door or indoor) are major components playing vital role in spread and cure of many diseases. • Allergy and Asthma - two major diseases largely linked with environmental factors and air-quality(indoor or outdoor). • Approximately 20% to 30 % of total population suffers from at least one of allergic diseases in India, out of which 15% develop asthma (majority amongst Children of age 5-11 years - WHO-Research 2009). • Pollen availability in air, Pollutants increased the risk of asthma among children and old-age people.
  4. 4. 4 INTRODUCTION o National Health Interview Survey (NHIS 2014 CDC & American College of AAI), 8.4 percent of US children under age 18 years suffered from hay fever, 10% from respiratory allergies, 15.9% are having other allergies i.e skin, food etc. Data Analytics become more complex and critical when dealing with Human Healthcare indices /decisions o Sign and Symptoms, Clinical Findings and Medications o Age-group and Body Immunity Level, Social determinants contributing to occurrence of disease ,Health and Hygiene components etc. o What if … when, Environmental Factors and Air Quality causing the diseases ??

  6. 6. 6 Goal and Objectives “ Improving the individual health by predicting, preventing the airborne allergies and asthma diseases using Cloud Computing ” o To provide an initial preventive diagnosis to all users depending on the symptoms (EPHR). o To distinguish population at risk using GIS/Geographic Positioning System (GIS/GPS) and Individual Electronic Health Record. o To secure the personal information of allergic and asthma infected citizens and advice consultations, alerts to Hospitals/Family Physicians o To define Predictive Health Analytics as a Cloud Service (PHAaaS)
  7. 7. 7 Outlining mHealth eHealth
  8. 8. 8 The transmission of an infection intended on the factors: o Susceptibility of the individual (immunity level) o Duration of exposure o Concentration of infectious agent o Virulence of infectious agent o Breathing rate. Other factors considered
  9. 9. 9 Expected benefits • Improve Individual Health • Green Computing • Reduce the burden of Diseases( High-risk Groups Children and Old age people) • Promote Preventive Health • PHAaaS (Predictive Health Analytics as a Service) • Cost-effective, improve effectiveness of Health System • Scalability for other diseases ( linked with Environmental and Air-quality factors)
