Croatian start-up with experience in the development of successful interactive portal is preparing an Eurostars proposal. They are developing an innovative concept for archiving and managing personal medical documentation, and looking for a partner to upgrade the portal with new functionalities based on the results of the research. Potential partner, SME, research institution or university, should be experienced in the health research field.
Cooperation plus value:
The scope of the project is to investigate the habits and needs of the modern population regarding the use of medical services, archiving medical records, and the development of products and services that will contribute to users' awareness of their own health information and the prevention of the development of potential illnesses. The final product is a specialized web portal.
Trends that are evident in the Republic of Croatia as well as in the whole of the European Union (as well as countries that have candidate and potential candidate status) tell about the global ageing of the population, which is directly related to the trend of increasing visits to doctors. The service this SME is developing, based on the research result, will facilitate and bring health care to a higher level, organise medical records and increase awareness of raising the quality of life through preventative health care.
On the market there are applications or services of different medical institutions but this new solution allows a person/patient to manage his own medical records from different sources, combine them and analyse.
The experimental development of the tools will be based on the industrial research and the results will be available for public use.
