Personalized health-care using pervasive systems, Dr. Andreas Triantafyllidis
Current healthcare practices and technologies are limited what it comes to offering a treatment that is personalized and optimized for the individual patient. The reasons are not only due to current technology limitations of legacy systems but also due to operational practices and economics. Dr. Andreas Triantafyllidis, a PostDoc Research Scientist at the Institute of Biomedical Enginnering at the University of Oxford, talks about the ongoing research in using pervasive systems to achieve better, personalized patient monitoring and treatment. Using pervasive systems, combining remote monitoring, mobile technologies and focusing on optimizing user-interaction and user-experience with the system the aim of the research is to remove barriers and to drive adoption and retention by both patients and health-care professionals. Interviewed by George Voulgaris for Tech Talks central.
