SURVEY: "THE INTERNET OF PEOPLE" AND SHARING OF MEDICAL DATA

We would like to invite all members and friends to participate in a survey promoted by DNV GL on the topic of "The Internet of People", which refers to the digitalisation of social relationships and the collection, processing and application of personal data.

The project aims to address opportunities and risks that come with disruptive ways of care delivery, such as cyber-attacks and uncertain financial incentives, and to involve the workforce to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare systems. The survey results will be used as a basis for international workshops on the topic and an upcoming White Paper. As a contributor, if you wish, you will be offered the first preview of the survey findings and conclusions of the international workshops with the collective suggestions on how to move forward for making Internet of People favorable for patient safety and all stakeholders.

All survey responses are anonymised and highly confidential. Share your view on this topic by participating in the DNV GL survey, which can be found here. For further information on the project, please click here.

IBENC PROJECT PAPER PRESENTED AT THE 26TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF ALZHEIMER EUROPE
2 November 2016, Copenhagen, Denmark

A presentation of the IBenC Project's results will be taken by EHMA project partner Prof. Dr. Vjenka Garms-Homolova (HTW Berlin) at the Annual Conference of Alzheimer Europe to be held from 31 October to 2 November 2016 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Prof. Dr. Garms-Homolova will contribute to the Special Symposium "Living well with dementia and social health" with a presentation relying on data collected in the framework of IBenC. The paper "Social and functional health of home care clients with different levels of cognitive impairments" aims to examine to what extent clients of community care in Europe (moderately impaired people aged 65 years or over) are able to complete activities concerning "managing own life with some degree of independence", "fulfilling of basic obligations", and "participating in social activities" (Huber et al., 2011:2) despite the fact that many of them exhibit cognitive problems.

The event is an opportunity to interact and debate, share experiences with policy makers and civil servants, care and health professionals, academics and researchers in the field of dementia.

These online based events represent an essential part of the IBenC dissemination activities and their target audience are community care organisations, local scientific communities, authorities and policy makers. The workshops discussion will also allow the project partners to better prepare in view of the IBenC Final Conference, to be held on Thursday 8 December 2016 in Brussels, Belgium. During the event, consortium members will have the opportunity to extensively present their results on a variety of topics. Besides the overall project design, basic information on dependency and care use of the study sample, also clinical and social topics will be addressed.
