HEARTFAID

HEARTFAID is a Research and Development project aimed at devising, developing and validating an innovative knowledge based platform of services, able to improve early diagnosis and to make more effective the clinical management of heart failure diseases within elderly population.

Chronic Heart Failure is one of the most remarkable health problems for prevalence and morbidity, especially in the developed western countries, with a strong impact in terms of social and economic effects.

All these aspects are typically emphasized within the elderly population, with very frequent hospital admissions and a significant increase of medical costs.

HEARTFAID aims to make more effective and efficient all the processes related to diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of the Heart Failure within elderly population.

This general goal will be achieved by developing and providing an innovative technological platform that:

  • integrates biomedical data within electronic health record systems, for easy and ubiquitous access to heterogeneous patients data;
  • provides services for healthcare professionals, including patient telemonitoring, signal and image processing, alert and alarm system;
  • supports clinical decision in the heart failure domain, based on pattern recognition in historical data, knowledge discovery analysis and inferences on patients' clinical data.
