Si tratta del più ampio studio mai realizzato prima in Italia per la valutazione dell’utilità di telefoni cellulari di ultima generazione, associati ad app dedicate alla promozione di stili di vita sani e attivi negli over 55. È diretto ai cittadini pugliesi che abbiano compiuto i 55 anni di età e siano residenti da almeno un anno in un comune delle provincie di Taranto, Lecce e Barletta-Andria-Trani.

MultiMed Engineers contributed to the Privacy Symposium Conference 2022 by giving two speeches:
- The first one in the frame of the satellite Workshop on Health Data Protection and Compliance (session on Making Data Trustable, Interoperable and Reusable) titled “Artificial Intelligence based pipelines for reusability of health data — The case of the GATEKEEPER Project”
- The second one in the frame of the session on Data Services and Platforms for Health Data Space, titled “Data sharing in a regional-scale experiment in the frame of a collaborative project — The case of Puglia Pilot in the GATEKEEPER Project”
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.
MultiMed 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.
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.
MultiMed Engineers, with the support of Università di Pavia (Department of Internal Medicine and Therapeutics), has drafted the first version of the City4Age frailty and MCI risk model. This document, which is a public deliverable of the City4Age Project (D2.1), presents the selection of geriatrics indicators that are currently being used to elaborate the behavioural markers for MCI and frailty, envisaged by the Project.
Despite the challenges by the COVID-19 restrictions in European workplaces, the Ageing@Work final system has been integrated and is now being deployed in pilot sites in Spain and Germany.
The GATEKEEPER community of interest is holding its 2nd Digital Workshop under the Business territory on Thursday 3rd of March from 15:00 CET to 16:00 (Agenda enclosed). This is a chance for us to continue supporting the gatekeeper ecosystem and offer our external members the opportunity to take part in the project
IBM says it’s the first of its processors that is so large it’s impossible to simulate the device’s quantum state on a normal supercomputer.
Welcome to the Ageing@Work project 5th newsletter issue. Having started to work in January 2019, we aim to develop and test in real life settings a series of advanced ICT tools aiming to support ageing workers on maintaining workability and improving quality of life, through personalized interventions.
