The SLOfit data as use case for testing a new paradigm of Holistic Health Records

We are participating in H2020 project CrowdHEALTH, which will introduce a new paradigm of Holistic Health Records (HHRs) that include a large number of health determinants. HHRs will be transformed into Social HHRs communities capturing the clinical, social and human context of the population segmentation and as a result the collective knowledge for different factors depending on the communities’ formulation criteria (e.g. demographics, diseases, lifestyle choices, nutrition, etc).

CrowdHEALTH will deliver a secure integrated ICT platform that seamlessly integrates big data technologies to the health ecosystem stakeholders. CrowdHEALTH will develop policy modeling techniques to facilitate the inclusion of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in policies and the correlation of these KPIs both with all health determinants captured in HHRs and with information from other domains towards a “health in all policies” approach. SLOfit is one of the use cases where such solution will be implemented.

Through CrowdHEALTH we would like to improve the SLOfit system by:

  1. linking the SLOfit database with the e-health system in Slovenia and the CrowdHEALTH platform in order to enable systematic access to somatic and motor development of every child to school physicians, to enable the sharing of relevant medical information to PE teachers, children and parents, and to provide a combined view of fitness and health information to policy-makers,
  2. linking the SLOfit database with the existing systems for tracking physical activity and enabling children to enhance their profile also by adding information on their physical fitness or using automated trackers such as smartphones, smart bracelet trackers and other trackers of physical activity,
  3. making all the information available on-line to PE teachers, parents, children and school physicians via web application,
  4. providing annual user-friendly SLOfit reports for parents, children, PE teachers, ministry and other decision makers,
  5. providing occasional messages for parents and children if the SLOfit data analyzed through the CrowdHEALTH platform suggests that recommendations for physical fitness or activity are not met,
  6. developing predictive models, which could visualize health risks and raise the awareness of children, parents, teachers and physicians regarding the health risks due to physical inactivity.
