The International Mattone Program for Health – ProMIS is organizing a workshop in Trento on June 18 and 19, 2018 entitled “Artificial intelligence and Chronic disease management”. The event will be an opportunity for discussion on the use of Artificial Intelligence in the management of chronic diseases through the presentation of European and national strategies and policies.

The initiative is the result of a study carried out by the ProMIS subgroup, which is engaged in “encouraging autonomy in patient care and aiming for care as close as possible to the patient’s home while ensuring safety and cost-effectiveness” and composed of 5 Regions/Public Administrations (Piemonte, Umbria, Basilicata, Puglia and the Autonomous Province of Trento), as leader of the initiative.

Representatives of the European Institutions, the Ministry of Health, National and International Agencies will take part in the event.

The first day, starting at 1.30 pm, will be dedicated to the presentation of policies and strategies in the European/national context, of good practices and experiences in Europe.

The second day, starting at 9.00 am, will be dedicated to specific talks that will try to identify and focus on the main aspects to be addressed (economy, security, privacy, etc.), closely linked to the adoption of artificial intelligence in health.

We suggest two talks in particular:

  • Stefano Forti, head of the FBK-ICT e-Health Lab, Tuesday, June 19 at 9.50 am “E-health technology platforms: Artificial Intelligence and eHealth”
  • Oscar Mayora, FBK researcher with the eHealth Lab, Monday, June 18 at 4.20 pm “Between You and Your Doctor: Virtual Coaching for Efficient Disease Management”
