The project AIRDOC will carry out, in January and in February, the Workshop “Mobile Health for Smart, Patient-centred Support”, an initiative involving CINTESIS – Center for Health Technology and Services Research and the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto (FMUP).
The program will start on January 29, with two webinars. At 14h30, Peter Mikulecky, professor of the Department of Information Technologies of the University of Hradec Králové, Czech Republic, will be the protagonist of the webinar “Intelligent Environments in Healthcare”.
The third webinar, which will start at 16h30, will be lectured by Mariana Madureira, from INFARMED, who will approach the topic “mHealth apps and the New Medical Device Regulation”. This webinar also falls within the scope of the projeto Inspirers, developed by researchers from CINTESIS/FMUP. In all cases, the transmission will be online and free.
The following sessions will take place within the scope of the Winter School 2021, under the responsibility of the Department of Community Medicine, Information and Decision in Health (MEDCIDS) of FMUP, which also has the support of CINTESIS.
The first session, entitled mHealth patient-centered technologies – the future is now, is scheduled for February 5 from 14h00 to 18h00, and it is addressed to all those interested in mHealth.
João Fonseca, from CINTESIS/FMUP and MEDIDA, will be the first to talk about “Smart Mobile solutions for individualized support and monitoring – The AIRDOC ecosystem”. He will be followed by Rute Almeida (CINTESIS/FMUP) on “Data acquisition and processing” and Goreti Marreiros (ISEP) on “Coaching”.
After a brief moment of discussion, Juan Corchado, from the University of Salamanca, will talk about “Mobile Sensors & Technologies for Healthcare” and Robin de Croon, from the KU Leuven, in Belgium, will talk about “Personal Health Empowerment”. Finally, Ana Ferreira and Pedro Marques (from CINTESIS/FMUP) will talk about “Privacy and security” and “Interoperability with other systems”.
The last session, Smartphone-based sensors for non-invasive physiological monitoring, will be delivered by Ki Chon, professor of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California.
These initiatives are scheduled for February 5, from 18h00 to 19h00, and they aimed mainly at researchers and students with an interest in the areas of mHealth and signal processing.
The project AIRDOC – Smart mobile application for individualized support and monitoring of respiratory function and sounds of patients with chronic obstructive disease, is promoted by MEDIDA – Serviços de Medicina, Educação, Investigação, Desenvolvimento e Avaliação, Lda. and copromoted by CINTESIS/Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto (University of Porto) and the Higher Institute of Engineering of Porto (ISEP).
