DIOPTRA participated in the Symposium on E-health Solutions for Cancer Patients and Their Caregivers last month. The event provided an essential opportunity for DIOPTRA to present the Horizon Europe project, which aims to provide groundbreaking new technologies to address colorectal cancer (CRC) risk assessment, screening, and progression.
The event, which ran from January 10 to 12 in Naples, Italy, was a pivotal moment within the E-Health4Cancer project, aimed at providing patients and caregivers in Europe with easier access to affordable and user-friendly nonclinical e-health solutions.
Organized within the E-Health4Cancer project, which is also funded by the European Union under the Erasmus+ KA210-ADU program, the symposium was part of the project’s mission to improve cancer care by sharing good practices in the use of nonclinical e-health solutions for cancer patients and their caregivers in Europe.
The DIOPTRA app under the spotlight
DIOPTRA showcased its groundbreaking application developed within the project, poised to revolutionise the landscape of cancer care. DIOPTRA partner I2Grow was also present at the event, presenting the features of the application developed within the project and distributing a feedback questionnaire to external stakeholders. Key highlights included:
- Presentation of the DIOPTRA Project: Attendees received a comprehensive overview of the DIOPTRA project, with a particular focus on its application for behaviour monitoring and change in relation to CRC risk factors. This presentation shed light on the innovative strategies employed to empower individuals in managing their health and well-being.
- Mockups Showcase: DIOPTRA showcased mockups of its application, providing attendees with a firsthand glimpse into its different modules and functionalities. From intuitive interfaces to personalised features, these mockups demonstrated how DIOPTRA was reshaping the patient experience in the digital age.
- Feedback Collection: In an effort to ensure continuous improvement and user-centric design, DIOPTRA actively engaged with external stakeholders to collect feedback on the functionalities and presentation modalities of media contents. Through a dedicated web survey, stakeholders had the opportunity to share their insights and contribute to the ongoing development of DIOPTRA.
As the symposium concluded, reflections were made on the significance of the event and the broader implications of digital health solutions. Digital innovation has the power to transcend geographical boundaries, socioeconomic disparities, and systemic challenges, ultimately paving the way for a more equitable and accessible healthcare system for all.
DIOPTRA’s participation in the Symposium on E-health Solutions for Cancer Patients and Their Caregivers marked a significant milestone in our collective quest for better health outcomes. By harnessing the power of technology, collaboration, and patient-centred care, we are forging a brighter future for individuals affected by cancer, one innovative solution at a time.
