    CARDITIS's objective was to overcome the weaknesses of the existing methods for the accurate reconstruction and simulation of the cardiac system. CARDITIS aimed at providing cardiologists and cardio surgeons with a software and hardware platform, which could be used as an intelligent interventional and surgical simulator. Its primary objective was to expand understanding of the human cardiovascular system.


    The goal of CARE-PATHS was  to set up an intelligent operational environment for making Clinical Governance effective, to support Health Professionals, Clinicians and Care Operators, in continually improving the quality of their services and safeguarding high standards of care. The approach adopted by CARE-PATHS was to exploit emerging technologies in knowledge management and semantic web for enabling the methodology of "Clinical Pathways" to function, to be effective and to succeed.


    The objective of WEIGHT-INFO was to provide the citizen with an easily and from everywhere accessible, integrated environment where any weight related issue is targeted in a personalised effective manner from the citizen point of view. The work programme was constituted of 11 work packages, dealing both with the construction of a reliable information environment (certified by medical organizations) and with the realisation of easily accessible online services, customised to deal with different user profiles, needs and weight problems. The usage of portable phones and other new communication devices was taken into consideration in the system design and implementation.


    In the envisaged scenario, where a rehabilitation treatment was prescribed, the physician, in co-operation with the physiotherapist, identified a personalised rehabilitation program for the patient, taking into account the patient status and needs. Based on patient’s personal needs, at the centre, the rehabilitation protocol was accurately defined, depending on the actual patient status; using the Rehabilitation process management tool the rehabilitation period, the frequency of visits and possible additional examinations were accurately planned.
