A partnership agreement was signed with the Ecole des Mines d'Albi-Carmaux at the end of August: Connected Health Lab will provide a platform for test phases and the development of RTLS technology and associated objects as part of a research project in which EMAC's Industrial Engineering department plays a key part.
e-Health is an application domain where innovation flourishes. The effective deployment of these innovative solutions, however, is often hindered by interoperability problems, or by insufficient consideration for the work practices and habits of end-users.
Living Labs, fostering user-centered practices and open to large-scale experimentations, are particularly well suited to the specificity of the healthcare domain. The Connected Health Lab is geared towards pluri-disciplinary R&D teams involved in the development of medical informatics or health information systems. It offers a space for co-design, developed through a tight cooperation with health practitioners and industries, and is aimed at fostering the design and validation of innovative solutions for tomorrow’s e-Health market.
