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