A Demonstration of 4D Digital Avatar Infrastructure for Access of Complete Patient Information
MyHealthAvatar is a solution that offers access, collection and sharing of long term and consistent personal health status data through an integrated digital representation of an in silico environment, which helps to deliver clinical analysis, prediction, prevention and treatment tailored to the individual citizen. The information accessible from the avatar is a life-long record of the individual citizen that offers an useful input to doctors and helps them to carry out personalised healthcare for individuals and groups (women, children, etc) The integrated ICT toolbox of the avatar system offers the power of predictive diagnosis and treatment through access to the predictive models and data analysis tools. The use of these tools shows the quantified progress of the patient and promotes a better modulation of treatment and a faster recovery. These improve the reliability, repeatability and timeliness of medical decisions and interventions. The integrated ICT toolboxes allow access to a set of integrative models, data analysis tools and a comprehensive collection of datasets to support clinical decisions. The integrative approach allows the clinicians to take into account multiple aspects that are influential to health, addressing the complexities in diagnosis, prognosis and treatment selection from the rising number of patients with multiple morbidities. MyHealthAvatar features the adaptation of a range of latest ICT technology with the aim of improving the effectiveness of the systems and enhancing patient engagement. This provides a new dimension in healthcare and enhances the sustainability of healthcare systems for dealing with challenges such as the increasingly ageing population in Europe.
