The future of healthcare
Championing the development of integrated, distributed, human-centered and trustworthy IoT environments, IntellIoT is made up of 13 partners, including the University General Hospital of Heraklion, which has been put to the test throughout the pandemic.
"The rapid spread of the novel coronavirus has challenged healthcare systems across the world," explains the hospital's Prof. Fragkiskos Parthenakis. "In the beginning of the pandemic we all faced a lack of information and data, be it patients, doctors and political decision makers. Over the last months, we have learned that data is very important for decision making in any sector but especially in healthcare. Intelligent IoT systems that provide humanized, trusted and secure data will help facilitate the use of distributed AI for decision making and better service in healthcare in the future."
Over the course of the next three years, IntellIoT will leverage technologies in 5G, cybersecurity, distributed computing, augmented reality and tactile internet that can empower healthcare professionals and establishments to work more efficiently and with greater insight, and that places patients' needs and their wellbeing at the forefront.
