REMEDIA: REinvent MEDical Ambient

The concept of the hospital has evolved, over time, to become that of an institution central in advancing clinical techniques.
Today hospitals are facing new challenges. New technical solutions can support patient care and provide new services for the staff. On the other side those technologies require more space devoted to machinery, and impose new constraints. Hospitals have to give the best patient care. This focus will drive significant changes in managing physical spaces, staffing strategies, and patient care models. Technology will be the thread that ties those innovations together. Improved clinical documentation and automated admissions will minimize errors and improve efficiency. Patientmonitoring devices will allow doctors to manage patients from afar. Smart beds that automatically transmit patients’ biological signals can alert nurses. Robots that glide through halls can assist visitors and transport equipment. Technology should allow hospitals to reach three goals: improve clinical care, reduce error rates, and reduce patient stress.
REMEDIA Project accepted this challenge. Students of both teams have worked to understand the problems with the external tutor from San Raffaele Hospital (HSR). Finally they identified a list of improvable conditions, and worked on solutions:
– to improve the mobility of patients and visitors,
– to improve the daily staff’s activity with new tools to manage
the ambient conditions.
