The goal of the “Smart Angel” project is to develop a high-performance digital system (able to be integrated into different existing information systems) dedicated to patient monitoring and support throughout their pathway, including when they are discharged.


It is part of the extensive transformation of healthcare institutions triggered by information and communication technology. It also addresses the issue of cloistered institutions and the need to open them up to the outside world and bridge them to the community.

Most importantly, it is in line with the new approach—4P medicine: Predictive, Preventive, Personalized, Participative.


Connected objects, artificial intelligence and our 20 years of expertise in patient data and care organization will contribute to the design of a smart alert system. “The right information, at the right time and to the right person.”
