Doc@Hand

Doc@Hand is an advanced platform aiming to easily access a wide set of data such as clinical records, clinical cases and diseases correlated information, supporting Healthcare professionals in their day by day activities providing an transparent access to heterogeneous and geographically dispersed information, allowing to query the system using natural language.

In a scenario where Healthcare organizations tend to rapid decentralization, with multiple actors involved in the care delivery processes, the importance for professionals to collaborate, access and share data and knowledge becomes more and more stringent.

Information security and availability is then the first requisite; Healthcare systems and networks protecting information both in written, spoken, electronically recorded, or printed form from accidental or malicious modification, destruction or disclosure is a preliminary system requirements. Security and authorization guarantee that information are accessible and distributed to all interested actors, at the same time meeting the strictest requirements for data security and privacy. Doc@Hand provides a set of tools that help healthcare professionals in reducing time and associated costs to collect the information and knowledge required, optimising the decision making processes and also preserving security and privacy.

Doc@Hand intends to:

  • allow a transparent access to different and wide dispersed information;
  • allow a proactive search using push technologies for relevant information
  • provide an intuitive interfaces to easily filter and navigate through the information;
  • integrate existing decision support systems;
  • provide virtual communities for opinions' exchanges around patients or other issues;
  • protect patient's sensible data from possible unauthorized accesses
