UBITECH participates at the kick-off meeting of the HospAItal research action on hospital transformation through Artificial Intelligence

UBITECH participated at the kick-off meeting, hosted by the CYENS Centre of Excellencein Nicosia (February 13, 2023), of the HospAItal action funded under the CO-DEVELOP programme – that is part of the Research and Innovation Foundation‘s RESTART Programmes for Research, Technological Development and Innovation of the Republic of Cyprus. The 24-month HospAItal project, spanning the period February 2023 – January 2025, aims to leverage and transform the way patients in intensive care units (ICUs) are monitored, where it will allow for core facilities to be shared and linked composing smart services for healthcare professionals, patients, information system managers, and health organization administrations.

In particular, HospAItal aims to utilize newly developed methods in the IoT domain enhanced with AI capabilities, for the analysis and monitoring of sepsis in ICUs, through a common open Integration Platform in a set of use cases, in order to evaluate improvements in medical diagnosis, surgical interventions, prevention and treatment of diseases (with a particular focus on intra-ICU sepsis), and support for rehabilitation and long-term care as well as organisation and logistics, all for the benefit of Cyprus.

Within HospAItal, UBITECH intends to provide tools for the improvement of logistics for healthcare services considered in Cyprus, aiming at the improvement of service efficiency, patient experience, and identity vigilance; to provide a comprehensive framework of technology-based modalities to deliver effective rehabilitation & therapy protocols; to develop surgical support tools for Invasive Operations; to deliver emphatic user interfaces and the emphatic AI units for assistive care; and to develop a digital health platform that enables decision support for personalized treatment.
