Based on the contractual commitments, on the medical domain analysis and use cases as presented in Deliverable D.2.1, we have identified the following major functional CARRE components:
Patient application: This application integrates patient related personal information and forwards this to the CARRE personal repository. The main types of information this application will integrate are the following: monitoring data from personal monitoring devices, health related data from a personal health record, and other personal information from social media. The patient application also supports interaction with the CARRE system, including visualisation of and interaction with the generic and personalized comorbidity model, and access to the personalized patient empowerment and decision support services.
Medical expert application: This application allows the medical expert to insert, review, and update medical evidence based knowledge required for the development of the generic comorbidity model. It also supports interaction with the CARRE system, including visualization of and interaction with the generic and personalized comorbidity model, and input, review and update of medical knowledge required for creation of medical alerts and planning.
Data harvesting and interlinking: This includes the CARRE repository, consisting of public medical evidence data and metadata and private personal health related data. Medical evidence data refers to evidence based medicine knowledge, is enriched via medical controlled vocabularies and is public. Personal health related data is also enriched via controlled vocabularies and related information on the web, but remains private and secured.
Comorbidity model visualization: This module creates and presents the generic comorbidity model as constructed based on public medical knowledge. Also, this functional unit creates personalized versions of the model using the private patient data. The generic model visualization is public, while the personalized model is private and secured.
Patient empowerment and decision support unit: This functional unit generates and delivers personalized services, including: education, alert, planning, and social support.
