New FP7 eHealth Project - DebugIT

The DebugIT project is a large -scale integrating project funded within the 7th EU Framework Programme (FP7). The main objectives are to build IT tools that should have significant impacts for the monitoring and control of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistances in Europe. This will be realized by building a technical and semantic infrastructure able to:
  • share heterogeneous clinical data sets from different hospitals in different countries, with different languages and legislations,
  • analyze large amounts of this clinical data with advanced multimedia data mining, and
  • apply the obtained knowledge for clinical decisions and outcome monitoring.

The DebugIT project, with its innovative approach, is an example of how ICT tools can be used to address the emerging challenges in healthcare. The DebugIT project addresses several of the overriding call topics at once by tackling the problems around antibiotics and of antimicrobial resistance of infectious diseases in an international consortium uniting world class research facilities, SMEs and industry partners.

It is an example of partnering at the European level to keep pace with soaring research costs by making use of complex IT technology technologies. It addresses the main socio-economic challenge in healthcare, namely to make Europe's healthcare systems safer and sustainable.

The research consortium includes public and private research institutions, university and teaching hospitals, industry and SMEs. The results of the application of the RTD will lead to higher patient safety and thereby fewer, more targeted intervention and fewer days in hospital. It means improving the overall productivity and efficiency of healthcare systems, delivering more personalised care solutions by allowing the actual patient data to be fed immediately into the system. It will therefore improving the Qquality of Life for patients and save their lives due to better, shorter and more targeted treatment. Patient safety is optimised through medical interventions with respect to treatment of infectious diseases and prescribing and administering antibiotics. The decision support will help avoid medical and other healthcare errors.
