Welcome refreshment after a long working session.
The first day kicked off with a demo of the latest version of the system. Technical issues relating to individual components, integration and deployment were addressed. The rest of the day was devoted to planning the pre-pilot and pilot, including the equipment, infrastructure and training for the two hospitals acting as the pilot sites, FSM in Pavia and Corporacio Sanitaria Parc Tauli de Sabadell (CSPT), in Barcelona.
The aims of the pre-pilot include collecting feedback, identifying any remaining bugs and validating the user interface by, for example, testing of messages from the system to the patients are clear and easily understood.
The pilots will be used to validate all aspects of the technical system and the associated procedures with the two patient groups and will provide the data for the evaluation of the system.
On Day 2 the status of upcoming project deliverables and management reporting for Year 3 were reviewed and plans for the evaluation were elaborated.

Work on GDM (Gestational Diabetes Mellitus) was discussed and progress was also made with clinical validation of the AF (Atrial Fibrillation) scenarios.
The meeting concluded with discussion of a future follow up project with partners contributing ideas and suggestions for future research and technology development targeting upcoming European calls, especially relating to Horizon 2020.
The project plans an International event next year to showcase the project and its results. The event is planned as a special track in a workshop to be co-located with the AIME (Artificial Intelligence In Medicine) conference in Pavia, 17-20 June 2015.
