What are the challenges to tackle in Paris Region?
Challenge 1: Optimisation of continuous monitoring of strokes in Neuro-Vascular Units (OSCAR)
This challenge concerns patients hospitalised following a stroke and is therefore to document non-invasively and continuously the hemodynamic and respiratory anomalies from their arrival at the Emergency Reception Service until their exit from the Neuro-Vascular Intensive Care Unit (NVICU). This will provide important data on possible anomalies that may require treatment and that would have gone unnoticed
Challenge 2: Remote monitoring of real-life patient data to anticipate the occurrence of complications/degradations in health status (SafeFoch)
After patients leave the hospital, hospital practitioners are victims of the “tunnel effect”: they do not know what is happening until the next consultation (from 10 days post-surgery until several months in oncological monitoring). Having data on these patients in real time between two visits to the hospital would allow practitioners to anticipate complications, adjust prescriptions, avoid unnecessary hospital visits (emergencies, hospitalisation) and obviously improve the state of the patient’s health.
Challenge 3: e-consultations in the management of alcohol dependency (e-Prevent)
There is a gap in the monitoring for patients after hospital or outpatient withdrawal, especially when the patient finds himself in his “consumption” environment, but also a lack of contact with his referring addictologist. The management of an alcohol-dependent patient who has been weaned requires close contact, on demand, to prevent frequent relapses, especially in the first 3 months of consumption. All hospital addiction units could benefit from a platform for e-consultations, accessible to alcohol-dependent patients monitored in the Liaison and Addiction Treatment Teams Unit and to their addictologist physicians, compatible with the telemedicine charter validated by the Order of Physicians.
The Deadline to submit an application: 8 June 2018
