Welcome to Envision PHS Futures!


Can you imagine a sort of personal health system that could be in operation in Europe by the year 2030?

  • Please, think of such a system, or of a key service, product or technology
  • (or combination of services, products and/or technologies)
  • that could be adopted on a significant scale.

Why should I share my vision?

  • 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.
  • Gather new insights and contacts: When you share and co-create new visions, you also find appealing opportunities for international PHS cooperation.
  • 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!

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.
