Results of the User Interviews to be Presented at e-Health Conference

The initial results of the interviews conducted both in France at Hopale and in Spain at Osakidetza will be presented as an e-Poster presentation at the e-Health Research 2016 conference in Paris.

First round of interviews started

The CEA LIST has visited their partner Hopale at their centre Jacques Calvé (France). They have not only visited their facilities but also started interviewing patients, carers and medical staff involved in the stroke care to get a better picture of the situation of all the potential users. Both partners at the University of Lund and Osakidetza have conducted similar interviews in Sweden and Spain. The interviews have been very fruitful and has stimulated the STARR team for developing a solution tailored to the users’ needs!

Meeting at RT-RK

In May, all the partners (CEA LIST, RT-RK, Télefonica, Bluelinea) involved in technical developments met in Serbia at our partner RT-RK to brainstorm about the system architecture. The goal was to think through the architecture to ensure the solution is flexible, efficient and secure.

The STARR program: a system of supported decision making and self-management for the prevention of recurrent stroke

Stroke is the second biggest killer in the world and the number one cause of severe long-term disability. With a growing and aging population, and improvements in acute care in recent years, the number of people at risk of a further, recurrent stroke has increased. This burden has come with an associated rise in healthcare costs.
