How imec translates health data into actionable insights

In this article, recent scientific papers are highlighted, showcasing imec’s approach to translate data into actionable insights in application fields such as cardiac monitoring, cardiac rehabilitation, stress management and decongestion therapy.



What if a smart patch could tell a hemodialysis patient how much water to drink? What if a smart watch could prevent an employee from getting a burnout? What if a wearable could help optimize a cardiac patient’s rehabilitation program? To enable these applications, smart algorithms need to translate health data (from medical devices and wearables) into actionable insights.

Imec describes its approach: labelling the data, new biomarkers, translation into insights, quality assessment and collaboration with hospitals.
