Is called 'Y-Doc' il winner of the second edition dell 'Hackathon organized by the Synlab Group, European leader in diagnostic services and laboratory tests, as part of a program developed by Eit Health (European Institute of Innovation & Technology). With the use ofartificial intelligence (Ai), Y-Doc assists chronic patients so that they do not forget to take their therapies. The project will be presented in Barcelona from 30 November to 2023 December , as part of the international final of the Eit Health Innovation Days which will bring together the winners of the other editions from 23 European countries.
Y-Doc was created by 7 students fromUniversità Campus Bio-Medico di Roma: Simone Spagnuolo, Francesca La Greca, Guglielmo Giannini, Virginia Montinaro, Antonio Spadea, Martina Zenobia Scopigno, Matteo Gardusi. Together they have developed a platform that supports chronic patients and their caregivers in the daily management of therapies, especially in the case of multiple pathologies: in fact, it is estimated that if 80% of patients' adherence to therapies was achieved, there would be a savings of around 11 billion euros, as well as almost 200 thousand fewer deaths every year in our country. The doctor will be able to upload prescriptions to the platform, which will be able to interact with all the patient's devices, from mobile phones to smartwatches and voice assistants, thus minimizing the possibility of forgetting them.
