27 Nov 2019 Transforming the Internet of Things paradigm into the Internet of People: how TESISQUARE supports Medical Health
Awarded at the 2019 Digital Awards for the implementation of complex technologies in the digital healthcare
Bra (CN), 11.27.2019. TESISQUARE®, technology partner enabling design and implementation of collaborative digital ecosystems, has been awarded at the AboutPharma Digital Awards 2019 with the TESI eViSuS® solution, an advanced telehealth system for training, assistance and long-distance care for patients suffering from chronic diseases.
“Transforming the Internet of Things paradigm into the Internet of People means putting technology at the service of the patient and NHS, thus overcoming the space-time barriers to guarantee a better life for the patient,” says Massimo Crivello, Business Line Executive of TESISQUARE®. From this point of view – continues Crivello – TESI eViSuS® confirms TESISQUARE®’s commitment to innovating in its platforms and solutions, able to connect people, technologies and processes “.
Designed by Dr. Giusto Viglino, Direttore Struttura Complessa di Nefrologia e Dialisi dell’Ospedale San Lazzaro di Alba – ASLCN2 in collaboration with TESISQUARE®, TESI eViSuS® system is a virtual partner able to create a network between hospitals, doctors, nurses, volunteers, and patients able to improve the quality of life and patients’satisfaction thanks to remote management and a dedicated assistance service.
“TESI eViSuS® allows you to carry out remotely: training for patients or caregivers, support for patients who are unable to independently manage therapies, monitoring of patients with high clinical complexity or difficulties in transferring to and from the medical centers – explains Dr. Giusto Viglino. The system thus makes it possible to reduce the risk of hospitalization and abandonment related to complications, with effects on the empowerment and autonomy of the patient in treatment ”.
TESI eViSuS® uses a totem equipped with a video camera and audio system, easily transportable to the patient’s home, which allows patients and hospitals to communicate via internet. This model of care and long-distance care makes it possible to achieve greater integration between hospital and territory, making access to treatment more equitable, effective and less costly. The telehealth system is currently working in 10 hospitals and care centers distributed throughout the national territory.
