Do you know the benefits which REMPARK provides? This device which determines and lists the diverse symptoms that are associated with the movement disorder which the disease Parkinson entails and which makes it possible to observe its evolution, offers a lot of benefits. Today we will present five of them to you:
1. It gives patients and their families confidence and security because they can count on a helpful technological device in the daily life with the disease.
2. It offers remote assistance by doctors. This feature is very interesting because you can count on an immediate professional intervention or a guided intervention by distance, should it be necessary. This means an improvement of the quality of life of patients.
3. It collects daily data of the patients and allows to learn more about the disease. This is useful when it comes to the individual so that every patient can be treated in a personal way, as well as when it comes to the general so that treatments and improvements for the future can be studied.
4. It reduces the need of hospitalization of patients thanks to the easy way of preventing crises which would result in the admittance to the hospital. Apart from being another improvement for the comfort of patients and their families, it is also a way of saving in the economic and administrative area for the public health and care system, as well as for the private medical services, insurances and mutual insurance companies.
5. It improves the health assistance at home and contributes to extend the working life. All this is again an economic way to save for the system and an improvement of the well-being of the patient.

Cloud storage may have been available for a while, but successful attacks on major providers have made companies wary of the consequences of entrusting it with their most sensitive data. Thanks to a secure framework developed under the EU-funded PRACTICE project, these companies won’t have to rely on cloud providers anymore to keep their data whole and confidential.
Through the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition the European Commission invites companies and organisations to organise activities to equip more women and girls with digital skills and enthuse them to pursue ICT studies and careers.
According to a new report of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), 21 EU/EEA countries have developed or are in the process of developing systems to digitally record information about vaccination. Five of these digital systems automatically generate lists that identify the to be vaccinated populations, determine which vaccines are due or overdue, and generate reminders.
As the impact of social media becomes more relevant, there is an increasing concern that social media —and also technology in general, and particularly Artificial Intelligence— might be replicating or even amplifying existing gender discrimination, prejudices and stereotypes. Identifying the causes might help preventing the negative impact of such technological developments. We have performed a test aimed at identifying possible areas of further research by trying to isolate the effect of the gender in the functioning of the recommendations algorithm.
