Real-time Behavior–based Personalized Health Management

Project Name: Real-time Behavior–based Personalized Health Management

Abstract: With the fact that “Healthy China” rises to national strategy, the medical services have transferred from after-disease treatment to preventive health management. Health management models vary from person to person, and the personalized health management needs to focus on the monitoring and analysis of individual lifestyle and behavior patterns. The real-time behavior data, which is automatically collected via wearable devices and social media, enables all-round recording of individual lifestyle and behavior patterns and thus can be exploited for personalized health management. This project will research on the topic of real-time behavior based personalized health management, particularly solving three fundamental problems as heterogeneous and multi-source health data structuring, disease association pattern mining from dynamic and static health data, personalized and real-time health management for dynamic decision support. The research outcome will provide the fundamental theories and key techniques for individual health data analysis and real-time health status evaluation, as well as promoting the practical applications of relevant algorithms/techniques in the field of intelligent medical.
