DISCIPULUS - Digitally Integrated Scientific Data for Patients and Populations in User-Specific Simulations
- CORDIS - PROJECTS 17/10/2011
The DISCIPULUS SA aims at the grand challenge of the Digital VPH Patient. It is an avatar of the modells and individual data that allow health prediction and disease treatment when the Digital Me of a citizen needs to avail itself of health services. In essence, it constitutes a revolutionary Clinical Prediction and Decision Support System. To realise this vision, DISCIPULUS develops a sound ICT research and innovation roadmap, informed by consultation and engagement of diverse groups from modelllers and technology developers to end users, healthcare providers and regulators. The final goal is to deliver a single, universally useful, all-encompassing VPH-based avatar.
To prepare for this, DISCIPULUS consolidates relevant RTD results by examining critically the state-of-play of both research and innovation throughout the VPH Community. It documents and maps output central to the successful realisation of the Digital Patient. It captures and quantifies the needs of stakeholder communities, particularly those of clinicians and patients, which are key for the crafting of a successful, usable Digital Patient. The structure of DISCIPULUS has been designed to optimise interactions between workpackages. Technical activities (analysis of scientific/technical challenges, translation/clinical scenarios) & roadmap production are facilitated by operational activities (management, community building/engagement, dissemination).
The five consortium partners, supported by global experts, assemble all the expertise needed to assure excellence of the final roadmap. DISCIPULUS lasts for 18 months, the minimum time span to fully engage the VPH community and the diverse stakeholders, and to deliver high quality results. Effort of 145 PMs is estimated, EC contribution solicited is about 1.4m, with substantial own contributions of 500k.
A strong impact is anticipated on buttressing EU leadership in VPH research, industrial exploitation, quality and sustainability of future healthcare.
