From Idea Conception to Service Provisioning: The Trentino Salute 4.0 Experience

In this presentation the Trentino Salute 4.0 (TS4.0) Ecosystem will be presented. TS4.0 is the “Competence Center on Digital Health” created to coordinate the work on digital health in the region. TS4.0 represents the instrument of cohesion between the guidelines of health planning, the innovation needs expressed by the Provincial Health Service and the opportunities offered by research and new digital technologies. This talk will describe how the TS4.0 ecosystem allows the experimentation and transfer of research solutions from its conception to service provisioning in innovative healthcare domains, including preventive services,lifestyle support, chronic patients management, tele-consultations and more recently, fighting COVID-19.
