Devise in-facility pilot demonstrators that deliver innovative
AI-based solutions in a health and care setting such as a hospital,
primary care facility or care home. Pilots should enable or support
clinical, diagnosis and treatment, etc. carried out with clinical
outcomes comparable to human delivered procedures and with comparable
Proposals may address any aspect of health facility
operations across their range of functions, such as diagnostics,
treatments, logistical aspects, etc. Proposals must indicate how their
proposed solution will perform when measured against particular health
and care metrics suitable for the aspect of operations chosen. Proposal
should be developed with health and care facility partners and consider
wider dimensions such as how they will work within the broader aspects
of impact on resources, staff training and alignment with existing
practice. The deployed solutions should build AI-based systems that
combine digital and physical services that support individualised and
integrated care solutions in care facilities, such as hospitals,
clinics, primary care centres, rehabilitation centres, care homes, etc..
must clearly demonstrate, in context, the integration of autonomous
smart components unpinning AI that physically affect the working
environment together with those that gather and process data and must
clearly show how, in a health and care context, direct and positive
impact on effectiveness and efficiency are expected to be achieved.
must integrate health and care partners in the design of the pilot, the
development of performance indicators, as well as to allow access to
the relevant operational environment.
Proposals must demonstrate
likely “at scale” benefits in efficiency or cost reduction and
demonstrate the effectiveness of any novel service models in providing
economic justification for scale-up investment. Proposals should also
identify opportunities for the development of European standards that
enable wide spread adoption and new market creation.
Privacy and cybersecurity issues, including security by design and data integrity should also be addressed, where appropriate.
must seek to align with the European Digital Innovation Hub networks
and platforms funded under DT-ICT-02-2018: Robotics - Digital Innovation
When assessing proposals, the Commission will take
into account the value of having a spread of projects addressing
different health and care functions (for instance, surgery,
rehabilitation, logistics in hospital, etc.).
