Leveraging AI based technology to transform the future of health care delivery in Leading Hospitals in Europe - ODIN

Project objectives

Novel technologies are allowing the digital transformation of health and healthcare, by radically transforming the access and interaction with hospital services. Machine learning, robots and telemedicine, have played an important role both for research and patients’ care. Hospitals have to increase their efficiency and productivity and boost quality and safety, while containing and reducing costs. ODIN identified 11 hospital critical challenges that will be faced by combining robotics, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to empower workers, medical locations, logistics and interaction with the territory. ODIN will deploy technologies along three lines of intervention: empowering workers (AI, cybernetics and bionics), introducing autonomous and collaborative robots and enhancing medical locations with IoT. These areas of intervention will be piloted in six hospitals (in Spain, France, Italy, Poland, The Netherland, Germany), via seven use cases, spanning from clinical to logistic, including patient management, disaster preparedness and hospital resiliency. ODIN pilot will be a federation of multicentre longitudinal cohort studies, demonstrating the safety, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the selected technologies for the enhancement of hospital productivity and quality. In particular, ODIN will deliver in hospital environment an open and secure decentralized platform, supporting a suite of federated services and Key Enabling Resources empowered by robotic solutions, augmented by IoT environments, and enhanced by extensible specialized AI.
