|The p-medicine EU project aspires to create an infrastructure that will facilitate the translation from current medical practice to personalized medicine. Part of this effort focuses on the design and implementation of an intelligent patient empowerment platform and its services.|
A prerequisite of personalized delivery of information and intelligent guidance of the patient into his/her treatment plans is the ability to develop an appropriate and accurate profile of the user. In the p-medicine project we focus on modeling and profiling the psycho-cognitive capabilities of the patient. A profiling server collects information from different sources (questionnaires, features and behaviors extracted from a personal health record) and combines them to construct patient profiles. Incorporating a profiling server give us the ability to (i) optimize information delivery from doctors to patients, (ii) optimize information delivery to patients according to each specific profile and (iii) identify relevant clinical information, such as trials for enrollment, automatically.
The ultimate objective of patient empowerment within p-medicine is to implement a smart environment (recommender system) able to act as a decision support infrastructure to support the communication, interaction and information delivery process form the doctor to the patient. Furthermore, the environment will give the possibility to a patient to view data organized according to her/his perception of the domain, to retrieve patient-understandable information, to state decisions and to put her/him in control over the use of her/his data.
