Needs Analysis Methods development and use, as a basis for new system and service concepts, to determine focus and ensure legitimacy.
Enabling Technologies for sensing, reasoning, acting, interacting and communicating, as required for providing care at a distance, for care providers, staff, care receivers and relatives.
Information Supply systems and processes for a border-less care system, and with increased accessibility of information to clients and other citizens, about available care and treatment methods.
Regardless of the starting point, all new ideas are subjected to an integrated analysis from user, technology and business perspectives, before proceeding to the next stage.
With the main objective to radically improve healthcare and rehabilitation, three particular needs areas will be targeted for exploration and intervention:
Collaboration between care givers, clients and close relatives
The objective of this area is to create a better interaction between different actors that give formal or informal care to the client. The aim is to increase the quality of care and to make more effective use of resources.
Remote Consultation and communication
The objective of this area is to make it possible for information to move to the place where the client or a specialist is. It provides increased opportunities for correct diagnoses so that the appropriate measures can be administered to the client in a safe manner. Such consultations can relate to a variety of interventions, ranging from highly specialized care, to intense rehabilitation and overall to increase the availability of health care in the homes of clients and citizens.
The objective of this area is to extend availability and ease of access to health related information and support for the citizens, and to make it possible for the clients to perform self-care actions.
INTRAWAY has been building advanced electronic healthcare solutions for that last 20 years. Our experience dates back to the times where paper based record systems were being replaced with electronic systems and new procedures. In this process, INTRAWAY played a key role in the electronic transformation that took place at Greek hospitals and in the public sector. Today, it’s time for a new digital transformation in the healthcare sector. A transformation that embraces a broad variety of stakeholders including patients, providers, payers, the public and the private sector. To address these new challenges, INTRAWAY is reviewing current funded research initiatives to cooperate with global partners to get another step ahead.
Intraway is active in projects involving the following social eHealth issues:
- eHealth Policies & Strategies
- IT for Cross-Border Healthcare
- eHealth Interoperability
