Comment and Co-Create PHS Visions

Why participate?

  • Gather new insights and contacts: When you share and co-create new visions, you also find appealing opportunities for international PHS cooperation.
  • Influence on European policy: This process will support the subsequent scenario and roadmapping workshops that are entitled to influence on European policy-making on PHS, for example by assessing the suitability of the PHS field for a possible ‘European Innovation Partnership’ initiative, and by identifying risks in, and obstacles to, various trajectories of PHS development.
  • Get invited to workshops: The best contributors of visions, comments and assessments will be invited and reimbursed to take part in ‘PHS Foresight’ scenario and roadmapping workshops in June 12-14 in Manchester and in December 2013/January 2014.
  • Receive the synthesis report: We will send you and other participants a compilation report on the results of this visioning process.
  • Win a fitness tracker: The best 20 contributors submitting, commenting and assessing visions will take part in the lottery of a high-end Fitness tracker. Such a PHS device can measure your daily activity and diet and ultimately improve your personal health!

Can I participate?

This idea platform is for everyone interested in personal health systems, including:

  • Private users (e.g. patients and elderly or working with them – private caregivers and family)
  • Professional users (e.g. medical professionals and trainers)
  • Suppliers (e.g. research labs, commercial actors, service providers, solution packagers and system integrators)
  • Supporters (e.g. policy-makers, insurance companies, standard setters, analysts, civil society)

About Personal Health Systems

The ‘PHS Foresight’ consortium has defined PHS to consist of:

  • Ambient, wearable and/or in-body devices, which acquire, monitor and communicate physiological and other health-related data
  • Intelligent processing of the acquired information (data analytics), and coupling it with expert biomedical knowledge and in some cases, knowledge of social circumstances and living conditions
  • Action based on the processing of acquired information, either applied to the individuals being monitored, or to health practice more generally, concerning information provision and/or more active engagement in anything from disease and disability prevention (for example through diet and lifestyle management) to diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.

About This Visioning Initiative

This site is part of the European FP7 project ‘Personal Health Systems Foresight’ with the objective to provide a forum for long-term coordination and strategic guidance across different PHS areas of application such as chronic disease management, life-style management, independent living and emergency services.

Our aim is to bring these different streams closer together through sharing, commenting and assessing visions on PHS. Visions can be totally new creations or they can build on others’ work and include respective references. All in all we look for visions that are novel, relevant and feasible looking out to 2030.

Welcome to co-create PHS Futures!
