Map of Tendencies 2016: "The use of telediagnosis and teleconsultation in Catalonia stands at around 70%"
On the past 16 December, Fundació TicSalut held the Meeting of the Map of Tendencies in ICT and Health 2016 at the TecnoCampus Mataró-Maresme. The purpose of the event was to go over the state of ICT in the Catalan social and healthcare sector, and to identify the development and tendencies of the past year and the new goals that must be considered for 2017.
Catalonia receives recognition as a territory and leading health ecosystem and benchmark before the European institutions and organisations in the area of innovation in active and healthy ageing.
Boston Children’s Hospital has created a guide for developing apps in bring-your-own-device environments in order to foster data integration and adherence in the hospital systems. This guide is intended as a tool for resident doctors to catch, monitor and share daily jobs focused on the patient.
The new Office of Integration of Social and Health Systems will identify successful experiences in the world and will assess their viability in the local area.
“Ensuring the integration of the Information Systems between health and social is one of TicSalut’s main challenges in 2017"
With the New Year, a balance must be made of the period we leave behind, and at the same time we must focus on the forthcoming challenges awaiting us in the year to come. As usual, we open January’s Flash TicSalut with an interview with Dr. Francesc Garcia Cuyàs, CEO of Fundació TicSalut, who analyses the challenges that 2017 will bring in the area of ICT in health and social well-being, and what role the Foundation will play in it.
Standards and Interoperability
The National Health Information Technology Coordination Office (ONC) at the end of December 2016 published a new version of the Standards and Interoperability Observatory (ISA). Unlike the 2016 version, which was a much more static document, the new upgrade of the online platform now allows health providers to participate much more actively in the process of forming the ISA.
