The main objective of this project was to design and create Hygía, a platform to centralise and manage the information of patients and health care resources intelligently and efficiently on the basis of real-time identification and location of the resource to optimise the entire attention process. To do so, agent technology, artificial intelligence, innovative identification and localization technologies and e-health techniques are used to endow the platform with a certain degree of intelligence and to generate knowledge and the ability to adapt to the demands of each individual interaction. The great challenges facing the platform are to provide the best patient care, enable access to information, improve data management, aid decision-making, promote the use of new technologies, optimise access to the resources and reduce costs.

The extreme complexity, scope and diversity of the objectives of the project meant that it was necessary to set up a consortium to access the necessary expertise in the various areas of investigation. The project consortium is composed of Eptisa and HORUS. The Directorate General for Health Development of the Regional Government of Castilla y León and the University of Salamanca Biomedicine Intelligent Information Systems and Educational Technology Group (BISITE) also participated in the project. The R&D project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Regional Government of Castilla y León.
