Today’s rich digital information environment is characterized by the multitude of data sources. The last years have seen the proliferation of new available ICT services applied to the field of ehealth, as well as sensors and applications which support personalized care.
Devices and associated services allow collecting extremely large amounts of medical data, such as blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar levels, etc. But currently collected data are heterogeneous, spread across different health care providers and systems that operate independently.
Due to this inadequate integration of the existing technology and to the challenge of aggregating data from different sources,it is quite common that important events related to health are missed. Here is where CrowdHEALTH brings value, ensuring that all relevant information is captured, modelled, analysed and properly presented to experts and policy makers for interpretation.
