Towards a digital human “behaviorome”

MultiMed Engineers carried out research activities aimed to investigate the application of Data Analytics technology to the capture, analysis and interpretation of human behavior as a determinant of health. The expectation is that such effort would conduct to the definition of a digital human behaviorome that could greatly improve clinical research, by providing more informative features on people health conditions, linked to a modifiable determinant that can be used for improving health policies.

HTA for oncology prognostic models

Cattura2MultiMed Engineers further applied its expertise in conducting HTA studies with the MAFEIP Tool, addressing the oncology domain. The health and economic effects of using the BD2Decide prognostic models in comparison with usual TNM staging, have been evaluated on the basis of the Project’s dataset, which includes several hundreds of Head & Neck Cancer cases. Four treatment escalation and de-escalation scenarios have been analysed.

HTA shows City4Age approach as viable


Figure 3.

MultiMed Engineers conducted a Health Technology Assessment for evaluating the frailty prevention scheme based on the City4Age Project’s early detection system. The results show that City4Age dominates the current standard of care from the Healthcare point of view, and exhibits a very cost-effective ICER of 3,380 €/QALY from the Societal perspective, allowing to conclude that the City4Age approach is viable.

BD4QoL contributes to training Medical Doctors in the deployment and use of digital health technology for supporting patient Quality-of-Life after cancer treatment


Partner MME, co-organized in cooperation with the Association of Medical Doctors of the Province of Parma a Workshop titled “Advancements in Quality-of-Life monitoring after oncology treatment”.

The Workshop has been organized as part of the national Continuing Medical Education program (ECM), assigning formative credits to Medical Doctors, thus leveraging BD4QoL results and contributing to train MDs towards the deployment and exploitation of new digital technologies investigated by BD4QoL and beyond.

The workshop agenda has been articulated into three interrelated parts:

  • Dr. Simona Bui, from the University Hospital of Parma, discussed how QoL in oncological patients represents a kind of “fourth dimension” of the disease and how clinical pathways should be adapted to include it
  • Prof. Stefano Cavalieri, from Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori di Milano and University of Milan, presented the BD4QoL RCT protocol, related to a multi-centric randomized study to monitor quality of life in patients treated for HNC, based on innovative digital technologies
  • Eng. Franco Mercalli, from MultiMed Engineers, discussed digital technology solutions for supporting quality of life in long-term cancer survivors, focussing in particular on passive data monitoring and chatbot interventions

The event has been attended by 50 Medical Doctors, who completed the final evaluation questionnaire, as well as representatives from local medical associations, including the local chapter of LILT (Italian League of Fight Against Cancer).


IDEA4RC Newsletter #4

In this newsletter we dive into the legal aspects of IDEA4RC. What legislation should be taken into account when developing an ecosystem that facilitate the re-use of health data on rare cancers for research purposes in the EU? What are the main challenges? What changes are occurring in the legal framework of the EU concerning health data? We asked these questions to Vasiliki Tsiompanidou, legal researcher at ECCP and partner of the consortium…
