Gerhard Leitner starts working on new healthcare project together with colleagues Claudia Steinberger (Project Coordinator), Christian Kop, and Peter Schartner from the Department of Applied Informatics.
The AYUDO project – Spanish for “I support” – is funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) for three years, starting in October 2019.
The aim with the project is to explore ways to support chronically ill people who depend on regular medication. The general idea is to use state-of-the-art technology such as smartphones and conversational devices (for instance Amazon Echo, a.k.a “Alexa”) and to combine such devices with medical data – which is currently distributed over diverse systems – into one easy-to-use multimodal platform which helps patients in managing and controlling their daily medication intake.
