讲座摘要:


    Lifelong Healthcare: Seamless Monitoring from Womb to Tomb


Pursuing a healthier and longer life is neither a new desire nor a modish topic, and has been an ambition of human beings since ancient times. Lifelong healthcare is now a global challenge and attracting attention worldwide. More and more professional communities, research institutions, and industrial sectors have been placing high priority on development of special devices and relevant infrastructures for personalized healthcare. However, an investigation from the WHO reported that most current healthcare paradigms still have common problems such as (a) the difference between acute and chronic care is not sufficiently emphasized; (b) people are rarely supported by a simple means of involving themselves in daily self-management, and (c) people are seldom provided with a persistent care plan over long-term period.


In this lecture, the historical development and the latest achievements of healthcare-related issues worldwide will be briefly reviewed. A government-funded project, “Challenge to 100 years of age” which involved more than 600 residents in West Aizu village since 1994, will be outlined. Afterwards I will introduce some outcomes of our recent researches on system development in cooperation with nursing homes and local hospitals. These studies include pregnant women, healthy subjects and patients with chronic diseases. The outcomes reveal long-term dynamics in health condition of patient and healthy subjects, unveil elder and youngster life behaviors, and contribute to a better understanding of maternal cardiac changes during pregnancy and after delivery. The real field operation over 8 years validates the feasibility of the system in practical application. As a result, an integrative strategy to tackle above challenging problems is proposed to meet today’s pressing needs in healthcare domain. Continuous efforts will make it possible to cover care cycles from womb to tomb in the future.
