E3 aims to design an E2E platform able to allow everybody (provide low cost high quality video conference & e-health services reusing in-home infrastructures) access to e-health services everywhere (both rural & urban areas, both Patients & Professionals).
E3 exploits & extends the results from CELTIC projects HDVIPER “High Definition Videoconferencing over IP EnviRonment” in terms of videoconfering and HIPERMED “HIgh PERformance teleMEDicine platform” in terms of telemedicine SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) platform over IP (Internet Protocol).
E3 focus on 3 main scenarios: Professional to Professional (will contribute to facilitate crucial collaboration between doctors for maintaining an increasing expertise & then ensuring a high quality of care for everybody everywhere), Professional to Patient (working 3 main areas: a) Design, implement & demonstrate prototypes of applications supported by the platform integrating new eHealth services into a unified user interface based on Smart TV, Mobile and Virtual Wall, b) Move current eHealth services from the health care centre to the Patients’ home & Remote doctor office without losing quality c) Add a secure reliable residential gateway with support for monitoring the network connection between the hospital & patient’s home. Patient to Patient Scenario will allow to intercommunicate among them and with their friends & relatives using the E3 videoconference solution.
E3 has deployed the First 3D telesurgery : transmission of both ENT and heart surgeries at the “Ecole de Chirurgie de Nancy Lorraine, Université de Lorraine, CHRU de Nancy” last 29th september 2015
E3 project has been awarded “eVIA INNOVA Bronze Award” last 4th November 2015. eVIA is the Spanish Technological Platform for both eHealth and independent and active life (Plataforma de Tecnologías para la Salud y la Vida Activa e Independiente)
The expected impact is improved productivity based on both lower services costs and higher productivity per doctor in the healthcare chains affected, new products from equipment manufacturers, new eHealth applications, increasing traffic volumes and a better utilization of the communication infrastructure due to resource sharing
