The Healthcare Flows Group has a long-standing research and development experience in biomedical and clinical IT applications. Activities include several applications of technology to medicine: biomedical data modeling, heterogeneous system integration, e-Health and telemedicine.
The group is involved in international organizations (such as IHE, HL7, OME and openEHR) and is collaborating with primary italian hospitals (such as Ospedale San Raffaele, Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli and Azienda Ospedaliera Brotzu). Research outcomes are promptly transferred to the healthcare industry through direct collaborations with clinical institutions and companies, aimed at finding state-of-the-art solutions to real-world problems.
The activities are mainly focused on three areas:
The group is also involved in the organization of courses and workshops with the purpose of maximizing the spreading of a shared knowledge base in the field of healthcare informatics between research centers, clinical institutions and companies.
The results achieved show that is possible to create a virtuous circle where research, experimentation and development lead to the implementation of technological and methodological prototypes that work in real environments.
