Articles: Project information
The REACTION project will develop an integrated approach to improved long term management of diabetes; continuous blood glucose monitoring, clinical monitoring and intervention strategies, monitoring and predicting related disease indicators and, ultimately, automated closed-loop delivery of insulin. The intelligent, interoperable platform developed by REACTION will provide integrated, professional, management and therapy services to diabetes patients in different healthcare regimes across Europe. This article provides a brief overview of the REACTION project.
The project will focus on and validate the REACTION platform in two operational healthcare domains 1) professional decision support in hospital environments for diabetic patients admitted to the general wards, and 2) control and management of outpatients in clinically diabetes schemes, including therapy compliance and support for self management.
The REACTION platform
The REACTION platform features an interoperable peer-to-peer communication platform based on a service oriented architecture – all functionalities, including devices, are represented as services and applications consist of a series of services orchestrated to perform a desired workflow.
The REACTION project is leaning heavily on leading-edge methods and technologies in a range of research fields. This article provides an overview of all the fields with links to the individual areas.
Project methodology and workplan
REACTION is a 4-year research project with an iterative development approach. The methodology calls for comprehensive iterative requirements and stakeholder analysis based on initial requirements gathered from medical and clinical scenario thinking. The project will be implemented with in 12 Work Packages (WPs) structured in a matrix organisation.
The Reaction project has planned an extensive series of deliverables documenting the project results. A large number of these deliverables are available to the public and can be downloaded from the web site using the menu to the left. Please note, that access to the download area requres registration.
Reaction in the press
The REACTION project is generating attention in the press, both printed and digital. Here is a selection of the magazines and papers that have carried articles or news flashes about the project.
The REACTION project has created two advisory aoards that can help the project to ensure that the project remains aligned with healthcare technology as well as medical and clinical trends during the course of its execution and that the projects results are always aligned with the newest scientific discoveries.
The two boards are: The Technical Advisory Board and the Medical Advisory Board.
