Healthcare 4.0 with Idea-Re at MetroInd4.0&IoT

The research work on the preliminary design of an embedded device for Healthcare 4.0 was presented at the MetroInd4.0&IoT conference.

The spread of bacteria resistant to antibiotic therapy (Multi Drug Resistant, MDR) is an important public health problem, which requires the adoption of advanced surveillance systems.

In this context, Idea-Re participated in the development of the project “DATAH: A DATA driven solution to reduce multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria Health hazard”, in collaboration with the University of Brescia, K-Digitale and Baxter International

DATAH aims at optimizing and automating the clinical processes of management and monitoring of diagnostic routines for the surveillance of activities and risks related to healthcare-associated infections (HAI), with particular regard to colonizations by antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as carbapenem-resistant enterobacteria (CRE). 

For this purpose, DATAH:

  • creates IoT devices based on machine learning for gesture recognition (hand washing);
  • optimizes indoor localization systems using quantum computers;
  • manages processes in real time using Business Process Models and Notation (BPMN).

The developed systems allow the creation of an innovative digital platform capable of verifying the implementation of routines and automatically changing them based on trigger events, in order to carry out the most suitable actions for the scenario that occurs within a structure healthcare.

On June 7, during the conference “MetroInd4.0&IoT – 2023 IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for Industry 4.0 and IoT”, Dr. Cristina Nuzzi of the University of Brescia presented the work “Gesture recognition for Healthcare 4.0: a machine learning approach to reduce clinical infection risks “, created as part of the DATAH project, displaying the results of the preliminary design of an embedded device for Healthcare 4.0, which could help the medical system to comply with sanitization procedures in an intelligent way.
