Personal Health Digital Twins

 

Can modern intelligent digital technology help in self-management and continuous monitoring of personal health of people at their homes, be in connectivity with caregivers and help if something goes wrong?

These questions take away the peace of mind of many people on this planet who, by various reasons, have to live or be away from their parents, grandparents and relatives working in different places, cities and countries.

There is an ever-growing segment of the population that includes the aging people and those with chronic diseases, and patients recently discharged from hospitals (including post-Coronavirus and other treatments). In 2020, as a result of the impact of COVID-19, the number of these people has increased dramatically. They need ongoing help in effectively managing and monitoring their own health and well-being, in easy contact with remote informal and official caregivers, and in effective access to medical services in the form of remote sessions and organization of visits to medical institutions.

The demand led to significant change in approach to remote health monitoring and many commercial solutions that offer various modes of Remote patient monitoring, Telemedicine, Telecare, Telehealth, Ambient Assisted Living (AAL), etc.

 However, most of them still lack of capacity for

  • Holistic intelligent automatic analysis of multiple processes that are related to individual health, life-style, activities, living environment, 
  • Intelligent high-level natural interactivity aiding in easy conversations and visuals,  
  • Intelligent automatic interpretation of the ongoing health status using accumulated human health knowledgebase, 
  • Keeping aging people and patients, their relatives and caregivers updated in an intelligent way that minimizes continuous monitoring overhead,
  • Providing positive psychological interactions with people in natural language conversations, supporting exchange of comments and multimodal message content
  • Having cost level affordable for large population groups.   

 

Monitoring “Smart Person @ Smart Home” as a whole complex living system

Our company introduced a new concept of Intelligent Personal Digital Twin application running at AI-, Big Data- and IoT - driven platform PharosN that realizes new digital health technology for post-COVID-19 years. It works as a personal dedicated Virtual Nurse at home for anyone that has basic medical knowledge, intelligence and ability to speak like a human, reminding, recommending in time and asking about health and well being. The vNurse, however, fundamentally differs from the people in the non-human ability to continuously collect and automatically analyse a large number of biometric and other data about psychological state of the host and living conditions. Having such knowledge that is updated in real time, the Virtual Nurse informs its host and caregivers about real or predictable critical situations and provides relevant recommendations, keep intelligent conversational interactions as human being.

The solution integrates latest mainstream open source AI, BigData, IoT, and cloud software, and commercially available inexpensive quality sensor hardware and wireless technologies such as Bluetooth 5 BLE, Zigbee 3, Wi-Fi 6, Lora, 4G/5G and complies with relevant major standards of cybersecurity.

The whole service package is made affordable for the customers while opening effective business opportunities.

As a proof-of-concept prototype, it was tested in the lab and recent Horizon 2020 project experiment SmartMozionAge 2020 and is introduced into a number of new international projects.

Our comprehensive project proposal for Horizon 2020 EIC Accelerator grant received the Certificate “Seal of Excellence as COVID-19 Response” in 2020 scored as a high-quality project proposal in a highly competitive evaluation process (~ 4000 proposals submitted) and is recommended for funding.

We invite the parties interested in investments into new AI-driven digital health technologies to review investment potential. At the same time, we welcome caregiver, social care and senior support organisations which have the spirit of innovation and interested in prototype pilot trials.
