Componente Científica 3. Scientific Component 3.1. Sumário 3.1 Summary 3.1.a Sumário Executivo (em português) 3.1.a Executive Summary (in Portuguese) De acordo com as Nações Unidas [1], o envelhecimento da população mundial foi uma das características marcantes do século vinte, prevendo-se o agravamento desta tendência durante o século vinte e um. Começou por ser uma questão associada aos países mais desenvolvidos, transformando-se num problema mesmo nas sociedades menos desenvolvidas [2], obrigando a repensar a política de saúde em todas as latitudes. De facto, a motivação principal para este projecto de investigação é a percepção de que existe uma escalada de custos que tornará insustentável o financiamento dos serviços de saúde, com a estrutura actual e para o contexto atrás referido [3, 4]. As consequências previsíveis são a diminuição da qualidade de serviço e a insuficiente ou, nalgumas regiões, mesmo inexistente oferta de cuidados especializados. Com toda a certeza, são necessárias alterações neste sector de serviços, e a resposta poderá estar na concretização de um novo paradigma nos cuidados de saúde, com recurso às novas tecnologias, adoptando novas metodologias na resolução de problemas, com o objectivo último de colocar no receptor o controlo da situação, para que possa almejar uma vida melhor. Os cuidados de saúde deixarão de estar concentrados nas instituições e serão centrados nos pacientes, ou em quaisquer outros tipos de utilizadores dos serviços, onde quer que eles estejam, resultando num serviço melhor e mais barato, quer para o receptor quer para o fornecedor [5, 6, 7]. Está já a surgir um conjunto de projectos na área da saúde, segundo esta nova abordagem, que procura responder ao desafio proposto [8, 9, 10, 11, 12]. O nosso objectivo é levar estes sistemas mais além, reforçando-os com mecanismos cognitivos e de aprendizagem, para que possam adaptar-se ao perfil dos seus utilizadores e permitam uma assistência, na prática, nas suas próprias casas [13]. A equipa de investigação é multidisciplinar (inclui elementos das Ciências da Computação, da Medicina e do Direito) e possui experiência prévia em investigação nos domínios base do projecto, obtida nomeadamente num projecto de investigação que decorreu no Hospital de Santo António, na cidade do Porto, na área dos sistemas de informação aplicados à medicina e à saúde pública, e mais recentemente num projecto em Ambientes Inteligentes aplicados à esaúde [14, 16, 17]. O projecto VirtualECare [14] tem como objectivo uma arquitectura baseada em tecnologia de agentes, suportando ambientes computacionais que permitam monitorizar e prover cuidados de saúde personalizados àqueles que deles necessitem. Pretende reproduzir os aspectos fundamentais deste tipo de cuidados na própria residência dos utentes, cuidando de proporcionar um ambiente adequado, adaptado às preferência e necessidades pessoais, e dando acesso ao consumidor a um conjunto alargado de serviços domésticos. A arquitectura do VirtualECare é distribuída, desempenhando cada um dos seus nodos um papel diferente, com tarefas específicas, em diversos níveis de granularidade, desde o call center, o sistema de apoio à decisão em grupo até aos dispositivos de monitorização. Por outro lado, temos consciência de que, ao mesmo tempo que se desenvolvem as tecnologias da informação com impacto nos serviços de saúde, a competição entre fornecedores de serviços é cada vez mais agressiva. Para garantir a excelência na qualidade de serviço e obter uma vantagem competitiva, é necessário possuir a tecnologia mais avançada, para cativar o suporte dos pacientes e conseguir as parcerias adequadas. Finalmente, é importante referir que a utilização desta tecnologia permitirá integrar produtos e tecnologias de outros parceiros para fornecer uma solução integrada, baseada numa estratégia centrada no paciente, orientada ao serviço e suportada pela tecnologia. 3.1.b Sumário Executivo (em inglês) 3.1.b Executive Summary (in English)

3 FCT : PROJECTOS DE INVESTIGAÇÃO CIENTÍFICA E DESENVOLVIMENTO... Page 3 of 17 According to the United Nations [1] human aging is one of the most distinctive demographic events of the twentieth century, and will surely remain paramount throughout the twenty-first century. Being initially a problem associated with the developed world, it turned into a nightmare of the undeveloped one [2], i.e., health care reform has become the leading policy issue in all latitudes. Indeed, the major thrust of all this research is on the perception that escalating costs make the current structure and financing of health care unsustainable [3, 4]. The consequences are on the dropping of the quality of service and the lack or inexistence of specialized care, i.e., there is no doubt that changes are needed in this sector, and the answer may well be on the introduction of new paradigms for the healthcare provision act, returning to new technologies, subscribing new methodologies for problem solving, with the primary objective of empowering the consumer, so that he/she can expect to have a better life. The health care services will no more be institution centred but, instead, will shift to the patient or consumer, resulting in a better and cheaper service for both the consumer and the supplier [5, 6, 7]. On the other hand, and under this new approach, there is an upcoming of healthcare projects that try to answer to this challenge [8, 9, 10, 11, 12]. Our goal is to take these systems a step ahead, empowering them with creativeness and learning mechanisms, so that they may be able to adapt to its consumers profiles and provide assistance on a practical base in their living [13]. The research team is very multidisciplinary (people from Computer Science, Health and the Law field) and have previous work in the field, e.g., a research project in the Oporto Santo António Hospital gave the team experience in the field of information system applied to medicine and public health, and lately, a project in Ambient Intelligence applied to ehealth [14,16,17]. Indeed, the VirtualECare project [14] aims at a Multi-agent based architecture in support of any computational environment that seeks to monitor and provide personalized health care services to the ones in need. It reproduces all the fundamentals at a home setting, ranging from the owner himself/herself, with their proper behaviour or preferences, to the accessible utilities, i.e., the VirtualECare architecture will stand for a distributed one, with its different nodes answering for a different role, either in terms of a call center, a group decision support system or a monitoring device. On the other hand we are aware that, while the information technology is developing and inducing impact on healthcare provision, the competition among service suppliers is increasingly fierce, i.e., in order to keep an outstanding quality of care and industrial advantage, prominent technology and perfect service are needed to gain patient support and cooperation partners. Finally, it may be said that making use of this technology, we may be able to integrate products and technology of industry partners to provide core business, including system integrations and technical capital construction solutions, i.e., based on an operational strategy of patientoriented, service-focused, quality-first, and technology-depended, it will be possible to provide patients with an excellent sustaining added value and one-stop solution and service that can enhance their quality-of-living Técnica 3.2 Technical Revisão da Literatura Literature Review In this work we will attend to the functionalities provided by a batch of IT healthcare projects, namely to those that are listed below, trying to take them a step ahead, throughout the introduction of proactive non-invasive techniques into the monitoring process. Amigo Ambient Intelligence for the networked home environment This project was a consortium of fifteen European companies who joined efforts to exploit the potential of the common home networks and communication capabilities of devices and improve people s lives. Indeed, it is common that a house has several networks such as the electrical, Ethernet or wireless. The Amigo project [8] interconnects these networks enabling communication between all the intervenient devices. Over this Hardware, Amigo implements services in order to allow the empowerment of such environments and its users. This project constitutes a good starting point for an architecture which allows the deployment of high level services and applications that can provide comfort and security inside walls. Oxygen This project from MIT [9] has as main objective to make technology as available everywhere as the air we breathe. MIT vision is that in the future, computers are available everywhere, so that everyone can use them and we do not need to carry our own devices. They will also be very generic, configurable to fit all our needs in every moment. In order to do that, this project wants to make interactions between person and computer as natural as possible, using people s natural language or gestures. Several modules necessary for such a project to work have been developed. The Intelligent Room has a speech recognition system which receives and executes orders from people in the room. The Cricket/INS is a personal location system inside a building that uses a badge carried by the people being traced. It allows for services in the environment to follow the person as he/she moves from a room to another, adapting that room to the preferences or medical needs. I.L.S.A. The Independent Lifestyle Assistant This initiative from University of Minnesota [10] has as main objective to study the response of elderly to a monitoring computer system inside their houses and determine how such systems can help this people. They not only determined which are the main problems of elder people living alone, but they also implemented parts of a monitoring system in some test houses in real conditions. A group of sensors was placed in each house according to what was being monitored. The information from the sensors was read and sent to a central where it was studied. From this central, alerts where emitted if unusual behaviours were observed. Clients had a portable device from where they could check their agenda, change some system parameters and even communicate with caregivers. This is a project that directly interacted with a specific public: elder people living alone. It is however a purely reactive monitoring project. ReachMedia This project from MIT [11] consists of an RFID equipped wristband to provide us with on-the-move interaction with everyday objects. The wristband contains an RFID reader that will read the information from RFID tags in objects close to our hands. After this, important information is fetched and presented to the user in some interface. At this moment a phone is being used to fetch the information and the user listens to what is found. It is possible to identify persons according to the wristband, it is possible for a doctor to acquire information about a patient wearing one or listen to the information of a medical chart while walking instead of standing still and reading it. These applications, when used in AAL, may be of importance because they greatly increase the possibilities of the interactions with everyday objects.

4 FCT : PROJECTOS DE INVESTIGAÇÃO CIENTÍFICA E DESENVOLVIMENTO... Page 4 of 17 Telecare The Telecare [12] project intends to develop a configurable framework for assisting elder people, based on the integration of federated data using a multi-agent based approach. A virtual network is therefore created, which connects their homes, the care or leisure centres, or even a virtual shop. It is throughout this virtual community that the elderly will communicate with the surrounding world, and will get tele-supervision and tele-assistance based services. However, all the projects referred to above suffer from the same symptom, i.e., tend to be simple remote monitoring systems, with none or very limited proactive capabilities, which is what we propose to introduce with the VirtualECare project [13]. Indeed, the main objective of this work is to present an intelligent multi-agent system able to monitor, interact and provide its customers with health care services of the utmost quality. In order to achieve this goal we will start to idealise and develop an architecture for an Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) environment, where our work will be centred on the monitoring module, a module that will encompass some reactive behaviour, i.e., it will respond with standard actions when some predetermined events occur. Its behaviour will be driven by IF-THEN rules, rules that are not static and will adapt to the users profiles. It is here that we intend to innovate with the introduction of creativeness, namely in the form of Group Decision Support Systems for long term health care planning. This creativeness will be non-invasive, ensuring the patient s privacy through security policies, being also as transparent as possible, allowing the patient to be informed at all times on his/her call state, thus increasing the acceptance of the system Plano e Métodos Plan and Methods Quality on the welfare services in caring, and the trend to minimize the economical and social-political costs that come with such practice, due to the population aging are paramount nowadays, i.e., health care reform has become the leading policy issue in all latitudes [1,2]. Indeed, the major thrust of all this research is the perception that escalating costs make the current structure and financing of health care unsustainable. As a new reality, it has to be dealt with by the health sector, and namely by the public one. Hence, new findings and cost effective ways for health care delivery are of particular relevance, especially when one wants them (i.e., the patients) not to be removed from their habitat. Being these advantages a legitimate ones, we are trying to take it a step further, being proactive, looking at decision making techniques, idea generation, argumentation and data quality, not only when applied to the in transit information, but also to the service provided. We are looking at a new approach for knowledge representation and reasoning, even at a new approach for problem solving. In order to carry out with these goals we idealized the VirtualECare project, of which we are going to present its sustaining infrastructure in terms of its architecture, and how it may be used to simulate a virtual Assisted Living Environment and to monitor the real ones, attending to the needs of the supported users [14]. We also decided to look to the problem from the user perspective, i.e., the system not only will provide different services, but will be able to trace the ones more frequently used and to learn about the context in which they happen. As a result, we will have a system that will act and learn according to the preferences and habits of its users, and, simultaneously, will adapt to the environment with the objective of reducing the cost of its practices. The VirtualECare Architecture (Anexo1) is a distributed one, with their different modules interconnected through a network (e.g., LAN, MAN, WAN), each one with a different role. A top-level description of the architecture machinery is given below: SupportedUser elderly people with special health care needs, whose clinical data is sent to the CallCareCenter and redirected to the Group Decision Support System. The supported user should be continuously monitored, inside and outside its natural environment, so that the collected data is provided in real time to all the interested parts; Environment the elderly natural environment, fitted with sensors, with the clinical data being sent to the Group Decision Support System through the CallCareCenter, and the remaining one being redirected to the CallServiceCenter. The environment may be an user home, a hospital room or a day centre; Group Decision This module is in charge of the long term planning tasks, regarding the patients healthcare. It should be populated of specialized staff like nurses and doctors, as well as Recommendation Systems and tools for videoconferences; CallServiceCenter Entity with all the necessary computational and qualified personal resources, able to receive and analyze the diverse data and take the necessary actions according to it; CallCareCenter Entity in charge of computational and qualified personal resources (i.e., healthcare professionals and auxiliary personnel), capable of receiving and analyze the clinical data, and take the necessary actions according to it. The user may make voice calls to this service and request assistance or advises, to which the service should answer and, if necessary, contact other modules like the Group Decision; Relatives individuals that may have an active role in the supervising task of their love ones, being able to offer precious information, and to intervene in certain crises (e.g., loneliness). Being an important part of the equation, the relatives should also have access to the health status of the patient, so that they may be aware of its situation. In order to the Group Decision Support System to make its work, it has to collect the opinion of specialized staff (e.g., nurses, paediatrics, cardiologists). There is also the need to have a digital profile of the SupportedUser, allowing a better understanding of his/her special needs. In this profile we can have several different kinds of relevant information, ranging from the patient Electronic Clinic Process to their own personal preferences (e.g., musical, gastronomic) passing by their own personal experiences, which can be used to better understand and satisfy their needs and expectatives. This solution will help healthcare providers to integrate, analyze, and manage complex and disparate clinical, research and administrative data. It will provide tools and methodologies for creating an information-on-demand environment that can improve quality-of-living, safety, and quality of patient care. There is the need to find new solutions that ensure that all this ageing populations will have the deserved care. However, as healthcare costs are raising, it is obvious that social security systems will be unable to succeed in their obligations, so that new solutions are required, namely the ones that propose that specialized care must be provided at their premises. This may bring great advantages, since the elderly will be kept in their natural environments. But there is a problem; how to deliver such care? In order to answer to this question, we plan to develop a platform such that it will be possible to monitor both the elderly and their environments. It will be based on a digital framework that is sensitive and responsive to the presence of people, on an Ambient Intelligence one, or being more specific, on an Ambient Assisted Living one. This platform should be able to watch over the elder by taking care of its home, adjusting it to its needs or preferences, monitor its vital signs, assisting it in every possible way. But, by addressing just a part of the problem, one cannot solve the whole one. However, once it is service based, the platform may be seen as an independent monitoring module of a more complex system, like the VirtualECare one. By doing so, more services can be provided to the persons in need, and value may be added to the work already done. Therefore, and from the public health sector point of view, the main goals may be listed as follows:

5 FCT : PROJECTOS DE INVESTIGAÇÃO CIENTÍFICA E DESENVOLVIMENTO... Page 5 of 17 To improve the quality of life; To increase the privacy and well being of its users; To lower economical costs; To establish simple contacts with other persons; and To have a quick response in case of need. The VirtualECare puts its users as it centerpieces, so that it must be emotionally and socially aware of its surroundings. Indeed, it needs to know: The user preferences, namely the water temperature in the shower, the TV programs, or the wake up time; The user needs, namely their medication or dietary restrictions, or if he/she is bored or tired; and The location and the surrounding circumstances (e.g., temperature, humidity, luminosity). The system also needs to understand the social relations that may develop inside a group, namely: Who is who and how they relate among themselves? Have their previous relations changed (e.g., A is angry with B)? Is this caller a threat or a friend?; or What to do when their preferences are in conflict? This information should be obtained through sensors in order to attain a minimal intervention from the consumer. However, it must be not forgotten that sensibility should play a major role in this work. The VirtualECare framework will continue to be enhanced. A more advanced aware module is being idealized and developed, which will rely on the relational model to computing, and will use extended logic programming as the vehicle to knowledge representation and reasoning. The raw data will be obtained from sensors, being later on structured in terms of the extensions of the predicates that make the universe of discourse [15]. To accomplish the objectives enumerated before we intend to follow the Action-Research methodology. This methodology starts by identifying the problem so that a hypothesis can be formulated on which the development will be based. Subsequently, the information is recompiled, organized and analyzed, continuously building a proposal for solving the identified problem. Finally, one can make its conclusions based on the results obtained during the investigation. For this research model to be followed, 6 (six) complementary stages have been defined, which will allow us to achieve the planned objectives. These points are described below, in the form: Specification of the problem and its characteristics; Constant and incremental update and review of the state of the art; Idealization and gradual and interactive development of the proposal model; Experimentation and implementation of the solution throughout the development of a prototype; Result analysis and formulation of conclusions; and Constant diffusion of knowledge, results obtained and experiences with the scientific community Tarefas Tasks Lista de tarefas (6) Task list (6) Designação da tarefa Task denomination Data de início Start date Data de fim End date Duração Duration Pessoas * mês Person * months State of the art ,6 da tarefa e Resultados Esperados Task description and Expected results State of the art: o Other projects: Identify all the similar projects in the area, make a swot analysis of each one and learn from their weakness and strong s; Identify the several used technologies. o Technologic: Searching for new approaches for AmI implementation and deployment (e.g., sensors, frameworks, development languages). o Health Care: Identify the implemented solutions, in the health care sector, that, although insufficient, are being used to postpone the inevitable problem (e.g., basic alarm systems, health care centers, leisure centers) Expected results We expect to identify the main problems in the healthcare sector derivate from population aging and the technologies that we can use to address them. The results of this task are a very important contribution to the correct execution of the following tasks.

A top-level description of the architecture is given below: SupportedUser elderly people with special health care needs, whose clinical data is sent to the CallCareCenter and redirected to the Group Decision Support System. This user should be constantly monitored, outside and outside its environment so the data must be provided in real time to the interested parts. It is the central component of the architecture and all the other components must work together to ensure its safety and well being; Environment the elderly natural environment, provided with sensors, with the clinical data being sent to the Group Decision Support System through the CallCareCenter, with the remaining ones being redirected to the CallServiceCenter. The data provided by this module must also be constantly available and analyzed. The environment can be the user home, a hospital room, a day centre, just to name a few. The main actions of the other components towards the environment are to maintain the comfort and security parameters; Group Decision This module is responsible for the long term planning regarding the health care of the patients. It should be composed of specialized staff like nurses and doctors as well as Recommendation Systems and tools for time and space distant meetings. In the overall this module should be able of planning all the issues related to visits to doctors, tests, automatically scheduling all this according to the user agenda; CallServiceCenter Entity with all the necessary computational and qualified personal resources, capable of receiving and analyze the diverse data and take the necessary actions according to it; CallCareCenter Entity in charge of computational and qualified personal resources (i.e. healthcare professionals and auxiliary), capable of receiving and analyze the clinical data, and take the necessary actions according to it. The user may make voice calls to this service and request assistance or advises and the service should respond and, if necessary, contact other modules like the Group Decision; Relatives individuals that may have an active role in the supervising task of their love ones, being able to give precious complementary information about them and being able to intervene, in a complementary way, in specific crises (e.g., loneliness). By being an important part of the equation, the relatives should also have access to the health status of the patient. The architecture obtained must interconnect all these distinct components providing a common communication mechanism. In addition, the architecture also needs a wide range of services (e.g. security, addressing, authentication). Therefore an infrastructure able of providing an extensive number of services will be developed (Anexo2). These services must, and will be, developed as Web Services, thus allowing the coexistence of several, different software systems interacting with each other through the use of common messages under standard protocols. The fundamental components of the proposed infrastructure are depicted below: Secure Communications in order to have all the components to interact, a secure communication infrastructure is mandatory; Management it is in charge of the configuration and monitoring of the processes (or parts) involved; Resources it responds for every component registration and the managing of the resources catalogue; Authentication every component must authenticate by itself in order to be able to interact with the others; Recommendation it provides problem solving recommendations; Monitoring it is concerned with all the sensors, reporting its status and data collected to the GDSS; HL7 communication module provide interaction with HL7 compliant medical devices. Expected Results We hope to achieve an architecture with the following characteristics: Distributed, Modular, Dynamic, Expansible, Flexible, Scalable, Heterogeneous, Standard compliant. On top of this architecture we expect to build a platform-independent infrastructure of communications that can support and interconnect all the previously defined components and, at the same time, provide the underlying security services.

In our case, we clearly need to study the behaviour of the system when specific cases occur, ranging from the reactive cases (e.g. react to an abnormal temperature change) to the more complex ones (e.g. there is no movement in the room where the person is for a long period of time). This is in fact one of the main advantages of simulation: it enables us to study specific scenarios that can hardly occur but are possible, without having to face the consequences or challenges of creating them.

Service procurement and acquisitions (Vazio) (Void) Discriminação do equipamento a adquirir New equipment requested Administrative costs 3.000,00 During the three years of the project, 1.000EUR per year, to cover administrative costs related with photocopies, phone, fax and others. The small amount involved is explained by the fact that our Research Centers will, partially, cover these expenses. Bibliography 6.000,00 During the three years of the project, 2.000EUR per year, for the acquisition of bibliography and the subscription of scientific journals. Maintenance 1.500,00 The amount included in this item must cover possible proactive and reactive repairs in the sensor and others equipments acquired and maintained in the project. We plan a minor amount of 500EUR per year (500EUR). The total amount is, therefore, 1.500EUR. The small amount included is justified by our expectation to be able to do most of the repairs needed Justificação do Equipamento 8.6.

Page 16 of 17 will be acquired in the 1st and 2sd year of the project at a estimated cost of 1500 Euros per piece. de equipamento Equipment type Fabricante Manufacturer Modelo Model Server Computers Unknow Unknow ,00 3 PC based servers (at an estimated cost of 4000 Euros per piece) will work as a servers. These equipments will be used by the research team to run tests, simulations and the final prototype. The project website will be published on one of these servers. The equipment will be acquired along the project: two on the 1st year, the remaining on the 2nd year of the project. They will be placed at the AI Lab at CCTC/DI/EE/UMinho. de equipamento Equipment type Fabricante Manufacturer Modelo Model PDA Unknow Unknow 4.000,00 The use of PDA devices have 3 main purposes: - Mobile computational and communication hardware; - Provide to the Supported User, at all the place and at all the time, the interface to interact with the system; - Act as a communication bridge between the system and the wearable computing devices (e.g., clothes with embedded sensors). de equipamento Equipment type Fabricante Manufacturer Modelo Model Sensors Unknow Unknow 3.500,00 The sensors will be mainly used to monitor the environment around the user. Therefore, we will acquire environmental sensors (e.g. temperature, luminosity, humidity), security sensors (e.g. smoke detector, flood detector) and other sensors for implementing complex tasks such as detecting open doors or windows and intuitive user interfaces (e.g. rotation sensor, touch sensor, contact sensor). We estimate to spend around 3500 in all the sensors. This amount is justified by the importance sensors have in these types of environment. The sensors will be connected to some of the computers acquired so that their functionalities are exploited by the developed applications. The tests and initial implementation will take place at the AI Lab at CCTC/DI/EE/UMinho. de equipamento Equipment type Fabricante Manufacturer Modelo Model RFID Unknow Unknow 6.500,00 The RFID equipment will be composed of several active readers and several different active tags. The readers will be used to detect the presence of a person near a door or an object and therefore have simultaneous multiple-tag read capability adjustable tag read range. As for the tags, we will acquire different ones so that they can be used in different situations: wristbands with embedded tags to be worn by patients and badges to be carried by medical personal or others. We estimate to spend 6500 in RFID equipment which will be connected to the computers acquired so that the applications developed by the research team can use them. The initial deployment environment will therefore be the AI Lab at CCTC/DI/EE/UMinho. de equipamento Equipment type Fabricante Manufacturer Modelo Model Actuators X10 Unknow Unknow 3.200,00 The main use of the X10 equipments will be to control domestic appliances and for surveillance. We will therefore acquire external and DIN rail X10 modules for controlling lights and electric devices that allow turning them on or off. To handle the security we will acquire surveillance cameras, sensors like intrusion detectors and a wrist transmitter that can be activated by the user in case of need. For interconnecting these modules with the computer systems and the persons involved transceiver modules and remote controls will also be acquired. We estimate to spend around 3200 in X Justificação de registo de patentes 8.7. Patent registration (Vazio) (Void) 8.8. Justificação de adaptação de edifícios e instalações 8.8.
