Umio one of the nine winning consortia to address the EU Horizon 2020 Nightingale challenge

February, 2018

We are very excited to announce that Umio is one of nine consortia (from 150 applications) chosen to address the EU Horizon 2020 Nightingale challenge.

The Nightingale project unites 5 academic partners; University Medical Centre Utrecht, the Netherlands; Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden; University Hospitals Leuven, Belgium; University College London Hospitals, United Kingdom; and University Clinics, Aachen, Germany. Together, they wish to create a system that connects patients and their carers (doctors, nurses and informal carers). A system that shares important vital signs, but also nurse and patient-entered data on well-being, symptoms and signs. Even in the best hospitals, patients today can still die unnoticed on general wards, for lack of appropriate monitoring, while in the home situation there is no structured vital signs monitoring at all. This can be remedied with the envisioned Nightingale solution, wearable wireless vital signs monitoring combined with intelligent analysis software and bi-directional communication.

Working with our partners, we shall be applying our advanced ecosystem perspectives on health value and the Umio Health Value Design® framework to capture deep learning of patient deterioration and contexts, then frame, evidence and design advanced value-propositions, leading to a high-impact, scalable solution.
