A Federated Collaborative Care Cure Cloud Architecture for Addressing the Needs of Multi-morbidity and Managing Poly-pharmacy - C3-Cloud

Funders: European Commission

Project Supervisors: Professor Theodoros N. Arvanitis, Professor Sudhesh Kumar

Project Researcher: Dr Lei Zhao, Dr Sarah Lim Choi Keung, Dr George Despotou.

C3-Cloud will establish an ICT infrastructure enabling a collaborative care and cure cloud to enable continuous coordination of patient-centred care activities by a multidisciplinary care team and patients/informal care givers. A Personalised Care Plan Development Platform will allow, for the first time, collaborative creation and execution of personalised care plans for multi-morbid patients through systematic and semi-automatic reconciliation of clinical guidelines, with the help of Decision Support Modules for risk prediction and stratification, recommendation reconciliation, poly-pharmacy management and goal setting. Pilots will operate for 15 months in 3 European regions with diverse health and social care systems and ICT landscape, which will allow for strengthening the evidence base on health outcomes and efficiency gains. C3-Cloud adaptive patient pathways and organisational models validated by patient organisations and a clinical reference group, change management and training guidelines will be shared with the European community.

National clinical database to help reduce number of miscarriages

Funders: Tommy's

Project Supervisors: Professor Theodoros N. Arvanitis

Project Researcher: Dr Lei Zhao, Dr Sarah Lim Choi Keung

The initiative is part of the National Tommy’s Centre for Early Miscarriage Care and Research (NEMC) which is the first in the UK - and the largest in Europe. The University of Warwick has been chosen as a partner, together with the University of Birmingham and Imperial College London. The NEMC is funded by Tommy's, the baby and pregnancy charity. An online electronic patient record system will be designed and constructed by IDH which will link into three Tommy’s Centres (in Coventry, Birmingham and London). The clinical details and histories of women attending the centres will be entered or uploaded from existing hospital systems into the collaborative online system. It is expected to take fewer than two years to assemble the initial tranche of data. At the same time the University of Warwick’s researchers will be joining doctors from University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire to investigate the causes of early miscarriage.
