COCOON

COCOON aims to improve healthcare by reducing medical errors and helping diagnostic and therapeutic risk management.The project is developing a semantic-based healthcare information infrastructure capable of integrating medical information and eHealth services.

A national health information infrastructure is needed to provide immediate access to complete patient information and decision support tools for healthcare professionals to design even safer healthcare delivery systems. Better management of health information is a prerequisite to improving patient safety and care standards. This is the basis of the research to be carried out by the COCOON system.
