The results of the C3-Cloud project have been analysed by the European Commission’s Innovation Radar (www.innoradar.eu) and four innovations have been recognised as ‘Tech Ready’.

The Innovation Radar is a European Commission initiative to identify high potential innovations and innovators in EU-funded research and innovation framework programmes. The main goal is to allow every citizen, public official, professional and business person to discover the outputs of EU innovation funding and give them a chance to seek out innovators.

 The innovations recognised are:

  • Application site integration toolkit provides the means for organizations to audit their organizational, clinical and technical readiness and maturity, in order to deploy (or connect to) a C3-Cloud healthcare service. The toolkit audits issues such as data governance (organizational), integration of the system within the clinical workflows (clinical), and installation of integration software (e.g., semantic interoperability). This enables a gold standard, consistent, and seamless provision of the service, across multiple organizations and countries. See the Innovation Radar: https://www.innoradar.eu/innovation/33835
  • C3-Cloud Architecture for distributed, multi-disciplinary, patient oriented healthcare services, enabling individual health IT components, such as healthcare records and patient interaction applications, to collaborate in order to address more complex healthcare needs such as multi-morbidity management, and patient empowerment. The architecture encompasses structure, data, information, and control messages, in the operational context defined through multi-stakeholder scenarios of use. See the Innovation Radar: https://www.innoradar.eu/innovation/29464
  • Clinical Guidelines: Interpretation, Specification, Implementation, and Execution provides specification, digital implementation and clinical decision supported IT execution of multi-morbidity guidelines. Gold standard guidelines of care have been interpreted in the context of multi-morbidity and have been specified so that they can be offered to patient in parallel, managing the complications (e.g. drug adverse interactions) that this may result in. The guidelines have been interpreted with a focus on improving patient safety. The guidelines have been implemented in a manner compatible with the architecture blueprint and are readily available. The implementation allows for IT based execution of rules, automating information stratification, giving clinicians and patients timely alerts for interventions as well as rich information during assessments.

  • Functional implementation of C3-Cloud components entails the development of new infrastructure functionality, upgrade of functionality of existing health IT components, and integration of components with the C3-Cloud architecture. The innovation provides the implementation (i.e. software artefacts) that resulted from the architecture definition, and the use scenarios. Existing products have used new improved functionality by being readily compatible with C3-Cloud-type IT infrastructure. See the Innovation Radar: https://www.innoradar.eu/innovation/33841
