Vendredi 13 juin 2016, Albert Brugués de la Torre, assistant du laboratoire AISLab, a défendu avec succès sa thèse de doctorat. Dr Brugués a obtenu la mention Excellent Cum Laude de l'Université polytechnique de Catalogne (UPC - BarcelonaTech) pour sa thèse intitulée Contributions to Interoperability, Scalability and Formalization of Personal Health Systems.
The aim of the thesis is to define a state-of-the-art Personal Health System by tackling together different challenges. We achieve interoperability by generating CDA documents that encode the health status of the patient concerning physiological values and alerts. We focus on the scalability by developing the MAGPIE agent platform, which is used to perform the reasoning for monitoring the patients on their personal devices and provide alerts on their health status. We address the formalization by providing an application where the medical doctors can define, in a graphical way, the monitoring rules used in MAGPIE to monitor the patient. The thesis also explores different ways to exchange the health information collected by the system.
