On 30th May 2021, H2HCare team was invited to the MIE2021 (Medical Information Europe Congress) to present a an accepted peer-reviewed paper dedicated to the process of searching, gathering and determining end-user requirements, used as basis for the co-creation of a social robot.
This technological tool has to ensure and support home cardiac care and has to take into account the needs of seniors suffering from heart failure and their caregivers, either nurses or relatives. To demonstrate how these needs are subsequently translated into requirements, H2HCare consortium represented by HUG has presented the research and prioritisation methods of requirements and their categorisation used in the project.
Sorbonne’s University team, which is working on a breast cancer project, reacted to those requirements asking whether these could be cross-cutting to other projects. HUG answered and explained that the requirements could be transferable and applied to other audiences, such as younger people with similar issues or people with health problems requiring post-hospital follow-up and home care support to improve their treatment and rehabilitation.
