Consultation Workshop on Personal Health Systems - Report

Consultation Workshop on Personal Health Systems - ReportThis particular consultation workshop is the second of its kind concerning the area of Personal Health Systems (PHS) in the 7th Framework Programme (FP7). The first event was organised in Luzern in February 2006 and provided inputs for the ICT WP of 2007-08. The objective of the current workshop in Tampere was to gather inputs for the ICT WP in the period 2009-2010, as far as the PHS research is concerned.

PHS is a relatively new concept, introduced in the 1990s. PHS are about disruptive eHealth solutions that place the individual citizen in the centre of the healthcare delivery process. PHS can bring significant benefits in terms of improved quality of care and cost reduction in patient management, especially through remote monitoring and management applications. PHS are seen as key components for bringing continuity of care in terms of location (extending care outside hospital settings to ordinary living environments) and time (e.g., continuous, anytime monitoring) and assisting the shift towards preventive, personalised and citizen-centred care.

Other types of consultations in PHS are also underway. A study on the application of robotics in healthcare is ongoing, aiming at providing inputs for the ICT WP in FP7 from 2011 and beyond. Moreover, a roadmap project, PHS2020, funded under an FP7 Support Action, is being carried out to provide inputs for PHS research in the ICT WP of FP7 from 2011 and beyond. Other consultations will be planned in the future.
