REMOTE digital monitoring for risk of relapse – FuturiZe test-drive experience

In programme
Wednesday, 23 October, 2019 - 09:30 to 11:00


Experience wearable and smartphone driven monitoring of behavioural and physiological indicators of risk of relapse during your stay in Lisbon Addictions 2019

HumanITcare is an Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) telemedicine platform that is developing an objective tool for mental health professionals and patients to monitor the course of disease based on behavioural indicators of risk of relapse, real-time medical support for patients, and on-going self-management of disease. The prototype tool collects health-related lifestyle behavioural data and physiological parameters using smartphone sensor inputs, wearables and mobile usage, to provide an accurate digital behavioural profile of the patient. Applying AI and machine learning techniques to this profile, the platform monitors behavioural changes over time that can be used as indicators of risk of relapse. The platform intends to provide objective clinical monitoring data using automated reports which save time at the follow-up visits in the clinical practice and allows for early detection of relapse. The prototype is currently being tested in the REMOTE study in a clinical sample of patients with alcohol use disorders and anxiety at the Addictions Unit of the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona. It will be exhibited and available to try out throughout the duration of Lisbon Addictions 2019 in Futures Zone 2.

In order to bring the HumanITCare platform closer to the Conference, we invite a limited number of participants to download the app to their mobile device and connect it to a Fitbit smartband that will be provided for the registered participant to use from October 23 Wednesday morning and collected on October 24 Thursday afternoon, at the HumanITcare stand in the Technology Corner in the Terrace Room. The participation in this activity requires signing an informed consent. The monitoring data collected from the participants will be encrypted and anonymised for analysis and presentation of the results in a dedicated session on October 25 Friday morning.

There is a limit of the Fitbit devices we are able to provide to the participants (30 devices). Only available for those attending Lisbon Addictions 2019. Registration is required for collecting the Fitbit (Eventbrite link). Registered participants will collect the Fitbit smartband on Wednesday October 23, 9:30 to 11:00, and return it on Thursday October 24, 16:30 to 18:30 at the HumanITcare stand in the Technology Corner in the Terrace Room. Participants will be requested to sign an informed consent and to deposit an ID card other than passport, national identity card or driver’s licence (e.g. student card, commercial fidelity card, etc.). Participants are kindly asked to show up on time. The experience and workshop is organised as part of the EC co-funded project FuturiZe (
