PEPPER
PEPPER, a HORIZON 2020 EU funded project, reunites 6 international partners under the coordination of Oxford Brookes University (UK). The project proposes a self-health management system that in its first phase will address type II diabetes patients.

Functionalities

Patient Visit

Every measurement performed in one patient visit is saved in the system for further visualization by doctor and authorized personnel
Functionalities

Main features

Less invasive procedures and reduced incidence of extreme blood glucose incidents;


Improved lifestyle based on reassuring personalised decision support system using case-based reasoning combined with predictive computer modelling;


Strong emphasis on safety;


Wearable technology BG sensors and insulin pump offers hope both to adults and parents of young children with the condition;


Additional research in behavioural science and what determines patients to play a bigger role in managing their own wellbeing, on the long run

Benefits

The system will make predictions based on real-time data collected from multiple sources, but also automate BG tests and insulin intake through easy wearable technology.

Case Details

This is an application area where the doctor has detailed view of every patient case and can validate/invalidate a case
Benefits

The Romanian partner RomSoft, along with the British company Cellnovo will provide the hardware platform for the mobile guidance tool and the cloud-based personal health care record, both of which will conform to international standards. The system will be tested first using an FDA-approved simulator and then evaluated through a full clinical trial.

The decision support engine can be considered the core innovation of PEPPER, and it implies additional research in a more subtle but critically important domain that refers to behavioural science and what determines patients to play a bigger role in managing their own wellbeing, on the long run.

The results will help RomSoft and its partners design and integrate a fully reliable decision support module.

Technology/Framework:
ASP.NET 4.5

Database:
Microsoft SQL Server

Patient Data

Patients have access to their own, private cloud data, where they can track their day-to-day evolution

Wearable Technology by Cellnovo

The system works with on-patient devices developed by the Italian project partner Cellnovo. The insulin pump is substituting the pancreas function
