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 tested, and has been now embedded into the functionalities of the Citizen Portal of the Region Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
