Seminario su La qualità del Fascicolo Sanitario Elettronico Personale

E’ trascorso quasi un paio d’anni dall’inizio del pressing governativo verso l’allestimento di un “Fascicolo Sanitario Elettronico Personale” (FSEP) per ogni cittadino italiano, dedicato alla raccolta, in formato digitale, accessibile e condivisibile, delle proprie informazioni sanitarie e cliniche. Ad oggi, pur persistendo l’assenza di un convincente modello di riferimento, che tuttavia non è presente nemmeno a livello internazionale, il FSEP è in fase di sperimentazione in quasi metà delle Regioni Italiane. È il momento, quindi, di una riflessione seria e condivisa.

Il Politecnico di Milano ha organizzato un seminario su La … Continue Reading

Meeting on ontological developments of ICF

The meeting “Ontological Developments of the International Classification of Functioning, Disabilities and Health (ICF)” , organized thanks to the MURINET project, is aimed at preparing future enhancements of the well-known ICF classification, developed and maintained by WHO, towards a more formal ontological entity. The meeting includes a first day, more general and centered around the relationship between biomedical classifications and ontologies, and a second day specifically devoted to discussion on ICF.The first day is opened by acknowledged researchers in the biomedical ontology field (Stefan Schulz, Freiburg University; Samson Tu, Stanford University) and involves other researchers from … Continue Reading

Telepathology and digital pathology

Telepathology and digital pathology are historical and crucial activities of MITEL.

Currently, our lab is involved in a number of activities including:

 

OntoICF

OntoICF is a project carried out by MITEL in its collaboration with the WHO Italian Collaborating Centre for the Family of International Classifications.

Main subject of the project is the ICF classification (International Classification of Functioning, Disabilities and Health) that is being reconsidered as ontology, together with the other collaborating centres in the world, and on which an analysis is being done to explore potential hidden semantics to be explicited and represented in OWL.

MITEL is also involved in the development of the Italian Classification Portal, based on semantic wiki techniques.

MIELO: patient-to-doctor communication for SCI patients

A person with mielolesion (PLM) needs healthcare support also after discharge from the rehabilitation hospital. Not all clinical problems are manageable by the General Practitioner (GP), and often PLM has difficulties in accessing specialistic services. Information and Communication Technologies became thus a tool for simplifying PLM follow-up. Aim of the MIELO project is to develop an Healthcare Portal for PLM, aimed at providing PLMs with a connection to both his/her GP and a specialist.

MIELO is a joint project between the Spinal Unit of the Dept. of Rehabilitation Medicine of Udine, Italy and MITEL.

The Portal has been developed and … Continue Reading
