Innovative technologies for health and telemedicine

Digital healthcare (AI and Big Data, Apps and Virtual and Augmented Reality)

Information technologies (ICT) are radically changing the world of healthcare not only in the de-materialization of documents associated with clinical activity, but also in the integration of different data. The volume of data (big data) available requires innovative management techniques based on artificial intelligence (AI).

The so-called mobile health characterized by the health apps available on smartphones, enables a new management of care.

Issues of certification, accountability, and transparency of inference mechanisms (to support clinical decisions) remain open questions.

Finally, virtual and augmented reality can contribute to the improvement of treatment and rehabilitation methods and surgical techniques.
