Employees Health Packages

EHP – Employees Health Platform is a MediaClinics Italia research project co-financed by Provincia Autonoma di Trento for the provision of new welfare services to safeguard the health and the wellbeing of employees.

The project involves the development of hardware and software solutions, gathered in Health Packages on the basis of the specific area in addresses:

  • HP 1: Physical wellbeing and lifestyles monitoring
  • HP 2: Quality of sleep monitoring
  • HP 3: Stress management and bio-feedback techniques

EHP has been developed in partnership with the eHealth Unit of the research center FBK – Fondazione Bruno Kessler, and will be integrated with the PHR platform TreC of the Provincia Autonoma di Trento (Autonomous Province of Trento).

New horizons of company welfare

The current business environment can be a very advantageous, considering the ever growing awareness expressed by the companies towards the safeguard and the wellbeing of their human resources. In facts, from 2008 to 2014, the percentage of companies actively involved in the promotion of the wellbeing of their employees has grown from 36% to 56%, and in 2016 69% of multinational corporations stated they have developed welfare programmes aiming at the safeguard of the workers’ health (data from Sole 24 Ore).

In this context, MediaClinics has proposed a research project aimed at achieving the following main objectives:

  • Offering to the citizen a new tool to take care of their own wellbeing, by monitoring their physical conditions and by promoting healthy and balanced life styles

  • Provide companies with a low-cost solution that can simultaneously reduce turnover, improve the business climate and secure employees’ loyalty

  • Acquire enough anonymous data to carry out more precise and in-depth epidemiological researches

EHP’s Health Packages

Three Health Packages have been developed under the EHP project, each of them with a specific focus:

Physical wellbeing and lifestyles monitoring

The main result of this package has been the development of a new healthcare service, composed by the following elements:

  • An interactive totem connected to a set of sensors and medical devices to measure different body parameters (ECG trace, glycemia, ketones, oximetry, blood pressure, body temperature, body weight, heart rate)
  • A web app to be used by the workers, to remotely access to their personal profile, containing data history and measures’ trends
  • A safe Cloud platform (GDPR-compliant), for data saving and storage

The data acquired by the platform will be synchronized with the public PHR platform of Provincia Autonoma di Trento, thanks to the collaboration with Fondazione Bruno Kessler.

Quality of sleep monitoring

This packages involves the design and development of new technologies aimed at monitoring and improving the quality of sleep. For this purpose, MediaClinics has established a collaboration with centers of sleep medicine, that led to analysis and design activities for the development of a self-assessment app for sleep apnea risk and the integration of a wearable sensor for quality of sleep monitoring

Stress management and bio-feedback techniques

The activities carried out for the realization of this Health Package focus on the development of solutions addressing issues related to stress and anxiety in working environments, which are factors that can result crucial for the maintenance of a positive business climate. To better monitoring and manage stress levels, emotional states and their consequent biological effects, the project provides for:

  • The realization of IT tools aiming at the analysis and the subjective measure of the perceived individual stress levels
  • The research and the development of bio-feedback techniques, based on mobile and web applications
