In Austria occupational therapists and physiotherapists use the hospital information system to search and filter relevant health data of their patients. Gathering this information is essential for further therapeutic activities. However, this process is not automated by smart systems. Therefore, the aim of the SMARAGD project is to develop a smart aggregation and visualisation of health data for occupational therapists and physiotherapists. Finally, SMARAGD aims to facilitate a more efficient time use in therapy sessions, including an increase in the time used for patient treatment and a decrease in time use for searching relevant information. Mona Dür, director of the Master Degree Programme Applied Health Sciences at the IMC University of Applied Sciences, is the principal investigator. The SMARAGD project is a collaboration between IMC University of Applied Sciences, SYNYO GmbH, University of Graz, Johannes Kepler University of Linz, Medical University of Graz, Know-Center GmbH and the University of Vienna. The SMARAGD project is partly funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).
