Chronic heart related diseases are a major public health issue and is the leading cause of death and hospitalization for people 65+ years. The goal of the “Reaching the Frail Elderly Patient for Optimizing Diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation” (REAFEL) project was to design a patient-centric home-monitoring platform for early detection of cardiac rhythm disorders. This would allow for timely intervention and prevention of serious conditions such as stroke and repeated falls.Continue reading “REAFEL – Contextual ECG Monitoring and Atrial Fibrillation Detection in Cardiology”
Today I had the pleasure to talk about health data standards in the class on “Health Data and Interoperability” at the Medical Informatics education, run by Thomas Hildebrandt at the University of Copenhagen.Continue reading “Lecture on Health Data Standards”
The CARP Mobile Sensing Framework – CAMS for short – is a programming framework for adding digital phenotyping capabilities to your mobile (health) app . CAMS is designed to support two things:
- collection of sensor data from the smartphone on-board sensors and attached off-board wearable devices, and
- triggering of “user tasks” such as a survey or a cognitive test.
Today I was invited to give a presentation to the Danish health management organization “Region of Southern Denmark” as part of their strategy conference on digital health.
I used my old paper on “Pervasive healthcare as a scientific discipline” as an outset to discuss where I see healthcare is moving – based (of course) on our research into digital health at DTU Health Tech and CACHET. Here I identify seven major trends, which I still find to be relevant. These seven trends are shown on the slide below (click on the image to download the entire slide deck).Continue reading “Two Major Trends in Digital Health”
The other day I was giving a talk at the Danish hospital “Nordsjællands Hospital” as part of their research day.
I was trying to talk about the challenges that the Danish healthcare system is facing and how technology plays a role here. I also presented the new Department of Health Technology at the Technical University of Denmark, emphasising that health technology is both the “wet“, the “dry“, and the “digital“.Continue reading “[Personal] Health Technology – Research & Trends”
