Models and simulation techniques for discovering diabetes influence factors

Project Overview

MOSAIC solution has the potential to provide to the clinicians with a new approach to the diagnosis of the patients and the follow up of the chronic population with diabetes, moving towards a strategy more focused on the continuous follow up and prevention of worsening than in treatment of acute events. This tool is meant to provide large cost saving amounts in terms of avoided hospitalizations and optimization of treatments.

This project has, on top of this, the objective to face the following challenges:

More predictive, individualised, effective and safer healthcare:

MOSAIC will contribute to the increase of quality and effectiveness of very specific care processes within the diabetes management programs provided by the healthcare systems in Europe.

Diabetes, being a major burden for the healthcare systems, has become a pandemic and affects increasing percentages of the population. For this matter, most European countries have set up screening strategies and management programs in order to improve the outcomes for this disease.

MOSAIC contributes to these programs by providing tools that enable the implementation of better methods for advancing diagnose of type 2 diabetes and prediabetic states, which has the potential to improve the prognostic of the disease as it would allow the personalization and assignment of early treatments. This also has an impact in the quality of life of the diabetic population and leads also to an increased productivity of those patients in their advanced ages.

Reinforced leadership of European industry and strengthened multidisciplinary research excellence in supporting innovative medical care:

The MOSAIC consortium is constituted by 10 different partners from 5 EU countries that will collaborate in the definition, design, development and exploitations of the outcomes of this project.

MOSAIC aims at generating new industrial activity by promoting developments around remote monitoring devices and systems and ICT tools for further exploitation of the MOSAIC products. MOSAIC will also explore the capabilities of the models to be modified for its application in other metabolic disorders, opening the door to the creation of new research lines and also for its development and further exploitation.

Accelerated developments of medical knowledge discovery and management in particular through the exploration of environmental factors in predictive models of diseases:

MOSAIC offers a totally innovative approach to the diagnose of diabetes and the assessment of its progression enabling to advance the medical intervention for the prevention of the onset or the worsening of the disease, contributing to maintain the patients in the healthy ranges.

MOSAIC will contribute to this by generating new medical knowledge to allow the interpretation of the new information and indicators that will be available to the professionals by integrating the predictive models developed within a diabetes management platform where the clinical guides for prevention, developed within the MOSAIC project, can be implemented. This will make these tools accessible to the health professionals in a disease management context for the continuous application of the models and not only as punctual element to be used at the moment of diagnose.
