The PICASO project is a 36 month Research and Innovation Action (RIA) co-funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation as part of the Personal Health Systems objective.
The PICASO project aims to research and demonstrate a service oriented, ICT based integration platform that will support collaborative sharing of care plans across sectors based on dynamic and personalised orchestration of care services. It will further provide a method for sharing patient information across all relevant formal and informal care providers using a unique, trust federated solution to the problem of data privacy in cloud based health systems.
The PICASO platform will allow efficient creation and roll-out of personalized Continuum of Care services that integrates and coordinates collaboration of different care organisations and enables patients to become active participants in their own care together with their families. The definition and execution of services will be implemented with personalised dynamic narratives and service orchestration across distributed care spaces.
The PICASO platform will further provide a virtual, contextual representation of the distributed physical care spaces based on multi-parametric sensing and data acquisition. PICASO will provide a unique, secure information sharing system based on distributed shared memory spaces.
Finally, PICASO will offer a decision support system for management of co-morbidities that allows cares to analyse the cross-effect of conflicting care plans based on the concept of constraint satisfaction problem, in order to design personalised, integrated care pathways supported by risk assessment for dynamic update of the pathway based on the immediate status of the patien
