Project description

Main features:
- Research infrastructure for a number of research groups in e-health
- The platform used for developing and evaluating the applications DMSS-W, Safe Step, Arbetsvis, eKontinens, MobiVib, HemmaVis, KOL-webben.
- Web-based system using semantic web technology for structured knowledge assessment
- Generic architecture functioning as base for collaborative knowledge system development
- Functions as an innovation platform
- Platform for developing clinical decision support systems, evidence-based interventions, person-tailored assessment protocols (e.g., questionnaires) accessible through smart phones, activity assessment and support for individuals such as older adults with physical or cognitive limitations
- Based on a formal argumentation framework which uses argumentation schemes, and includes preferences and modal values
- Support for a multi-language development context
- Based on formal ontology for personalisation and for providing tailored advice
