Abstract :

More than 100 and 65 million people are suffering from chronic airway diseases and chronic heart diseases, respectively, in China. In order to reduce the mortality due to these diseases and resolve the difficulty of visiting a doctor in hospital, it is urgent to establish a cell-phone based e-health platform via cloud computing and internet of things in China. The platform is a combination of medical sensors, internet technique and existing dynamic network infrastructure, which helps to achieve remote interactions between hospitals, patients and healthcare devices. In the past few years, we have developed early diagnosis and therapy management software for sleep, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, as well as a new generation of wireless sensor spirometer, and obtained six patents and three software copyrights, which allows much more sophisticated and continuous monitoring of patients. We have established the Internet of Things Medical Center in Qingpu County, Shanghai. By connecting district hospitals and community hospitals, the medical center could carry out early diagnosis of sleep and management of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which helps keep patients from going into the hospital. The total investment of the project is 10 million US dollars and focuses on four major research areas: (1) low-carbon, low-power, wearable human life parameter collection, analysis and wireless sensing technology; (2) remote medical diagnosis and management systems based on wireless networking; (3) massive cloud-based medical information analysis, modeling and application technology; (4) efficient and convenient medical center monitoring and managing network infrastructure.
