 Topic:  Automated Detection of Adverse Responses
 Radu Leca, CTO, Biosign Technologies Inc., Toronto

Abstract:
Several cases will be used to illustrate the value of physical measurement in gathering and analyzing medical evidence safety and efficacy. While enjoying logical singularity, the judgement of symptoms demands confirmation and agreement. The demand for agreement, however, is most peculiar because it cannot be based on rational argument as it is solely determined by personal experience. Proving causation and assessing health risk in real-time raises therefore issues unique to biomedicine.

 

Topic: Collection, Integration and Analysis of Electronic Health Information for Monitoring Patient Outcomes
Liam Peyton, University of Ottawa, Canada

 Abstract:
This talk lays out a spectrum of monitoring in terms of granularity and immediacy of monitoring from personalized sensor based monitoring to hospital adverse event management systems to broad-based community/national syndromic surveillance. It would identify current issues and approaches with examples from several projects I am involved in
(tying them together around a common theme).

 

 Topic:  Context-Aware Multi-Sensor Systems for Mission Critical Healthcare Applications
Emil Petriu, University of Ottawa, Canada

Abstract:
Smart-healthcare environments incorporate a multitude of time- and location-dependent sensor-data, from which is possible to extract relevant information about patient condition (identity, location, physiological parameters), clinical staff status (identity, location, readiness), specific clinical activities, medication, supplies, and equipment status (identity, location, specs), operating room readiness, state of the ambient environment, etc. Context understanding in these environments require dynamic sensor configurations and measurement capabilities similar to human perception, which pose a considerable challenge to the traditional sensor fusion methods.

 

 Topic: Non-invasive and unobtrusive sensing solutions for human homeostasis assessment
 Octavian Postolache*,

Abstract:
Recent developments in storage media embedded processing technology, smart sensors and communication technology that facilitate the exchange of information and expertise, offers an opportunity to improve health care, with the potential to reduce costs and enhance quality, safety, and efficiency in health care. In this context are highlighted some applications of intelligent environment-based network of smart sensing systems which collects and process information from various non-invasive and unobtrusive sensors enabling to ´recognize` physiological and behavioral pattern deviations out off the homeostasis set parameters; which performs the recognition of life-threatening situations and establishes new connections between patients and caregivers.
