Giuseppe De Pietro: Director ICAR CNR
Title: Mobile Healthcare and Electronic Health Record
Abstract: The Electronic Health Record aims to provide citizen with their healthcare history by storing all data and documents useful for prevention, diagnosis, care and follow-up. In particular, the Italian regulation of EHR contemplates a specific section called “Personal citizen agenda (PCA)” in which users can store “not certified” personal collected data and documents.At present most of user collected data derive from wearable device and smartphone, so it is a key issue to develop services and tools to easily store and retrieve such data in/from PCA. In this talk some “smart” m-health applications for PCA handling will be presented and discussed.
Bio: Giuseppe De Pietro is Director of the Institute for High‐Performance Computing and Networking (ICAR) of Italian National Research Council (CNR). Current research interests are: pervasive and mobile computing, Clinical Decision Support Systems, Software architectures for e-health. He has been actively involved in many European and National projects, with industrial co-operations too.He is author of over 150 scientific papers published in international journals and conferences and he is involved in many program committees and journal editorial boards. He is contract Professor of Computer Science at University of Naples “Parthenope”, Adjunt Professor in Temple University’s College of Science and Technology-Philapdelphia USA. He is IEEE and KES International Member.
Title of his Speech: "How To Make It Happen"
A recent McKinsey report states that “health systems in developed countries face a twofold challenge: ensuring financial sustainability and improving quality. Digitization can help health systems achieve both these objectives and unlock substantial value through lower spending and superior healthcare delivery.”
Indeed, this is not a new vision or claim. However, pursuing this vision is not easy and certainly there is still a long road ahead to make it happen.
Why? What are the “stumbling blocks” that slow down or even hamper this vision? What are the key factors to be taken into account in developing a convincing strategy? Are there meaningful and concrete examples we can exploit to accelerate digital innovation processes?
The talk aims at discussing these issues and also to summarise concrete examples and approaches that might help pursuing such as ambitious and strategic vision.
He was born in Savona on August 10, 1970. He obtained a Master degree in Biomedical Engineering from University of Genova in 1995 and achieved a specialisation master in digital signal processing. He worked for Cefriel as a researcher in several European research and private-funded innovation projects on Telemedicine and e-health.
Since 2004 he gradually shifted his research interests in the area of unconventional security and cybercrime. Among his activities for Cefriel he participated to different research and innovation projects on secure code development, hacking/cracking techniques (Reverse Code Engineering and penetration testing), social engineering and cybercrime prevention.
Since 2015 he is the scientific coordinator of the European project DOGANA whose aim is to create an European framework for the assessment of human security. He is participating to several cybercrime related task forces (DCC, EECTF, ECSO) and is author of several subject-related papers and books.

Knowing how to stay healthy is not enough to motivate individuals to adopt healthy lifestyles, but relevant progress can be achieved through the use of incentives delivered through a combination of processes and mobile technologies.
Recognizing the effectiveness of this approach, PEGASO Fit 4 Future has develop a multi-dimensional cross-disciplinary ICT system that exploits wearable sensors, mobile apps and game mechanics to motivate behavioral changes towards healthier lifestyles and prevent overweight and obesity in the younger population.
PEGASO is currently being piloted with over 300 adolescents in three EU member states (Spain, Italy, UK).
BIO: Renata Guarneri is Project Manager in the Project Development - International Area at FPM. Before joining FPM she was Principal Technologist and later Innovation Director at CREATE-NET, responsible for the centre overall research organisation and research strategic directions, including EU funding aspects. She has been fully involved in EU funded research since 1990 when she joined the RACE Industrial Consortium in Brussels to represent Italtel. In 1999 Renata joined Siemens, first in the Marketing and Strategies Department, then in the R&D Department of the Mobile Radio Business Unit. Recently Renata has been involved mainly in project dealing with ICT for Health and she is the project coordinator of PEGASO Fit 4 Future, dealing with prevention of obesity in teen-agers.
