‌Context-Aware e-Collaborative Environments for e-Health Decision Support

Project Overview

Project Title: Context-Aware Multimedia Information System for e-Health Decision Support

Duration: June 2009-June 2011

British Council Sponsorship ID: PMI - RCGS286

Key Project Theme: Context-Aware e-Collaborative Environments for e-Health Decision Support

This research project seeks to contribute to addressing new and emerging challenges (technological, scientific and human factors) in Health Informatics for the purpose of developing effective e-Health Systems and Technologies for the 21st century. 

The goal is to develop a context-aware multimedia information system to support collaborative medical decision making in an e-Health environment. The project will seek to apply advanced techniques in context-aware and mobile computing and data mining to the analysis of diverse multimedia-based medical data, integrated with virtual healthcare services, for the purposes of enhancing collaborative medical decision-making, improving patient information management, and delivering healthcare services across geographical barriers.

 

Other Project Themes

1. E-health Technology Acceptance and Adoption

2. An E-health framework for the UAE

3. An E-learning based approach for raising health awareness
