Smart Health, Bright Future
Intelligent Health Information Service Management

The eHealth Institute has been awarded a grant from the NSFC (Natural Science Foundation of China) titled Intelligent Health Information Service Management lasting from 2016 to 2020.

   The aging and environmental problems of China are getting worse day by day and the public’s demand for health care has reached an unprecedented height. With the development of IT technology and the arrival of the age of big data, intelligent health service came into being. Compare to traditional health care, intelligent health service has characteristics of big data, individualized care, multi-party’s cooperation, and intelligence throughout the whole medical process. It necessitates a new theoretical support of how to use big data on three factors. First is the way improving healthcare effectiveness. Second is promoting collaboration, integration and services among the participating parties. Third is societal impact.  

   This project intends to combine multiple sources of health data. From the perspectives of multiple participants, the research is based on the following aspects of intelligent health: information, services and societal impact. First, combined with the features of big data in health, the project will provide effective data management, data correction and health evaluation leading to disease early warning methods. Second, based on the features of intelligent health services, the project will explore the service process of intelligent health service, management mechanisms and sustainable value creation. Third, by means of practical application, the project will explore the societal impact of intelligent health.

   Theoretically, the research provides basic theories and methods on the management and analysis of big data in intelligent health, health dynamic evaluation and related research on diseases warning and health information service. Practically, it will help to improve health management, mitigate conflict between doctors and patients, and promote integration of medical resources with a focus on achieving sustainable and high quality health care service for residents.
