Safor Salut Commits to Innovation in the Early Detection of Diseases

The “Safor Salut” cooperation program, a joint initiative between FISABIOGandia Health Department, FISABIOHACLE La Pedrera, Campus Gandia Campus of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) and the Federation of Business Associations of La Safor (FAES, for its Spanish initials), is set to hold a Technology Pill on technology for the early detection of disease and pathologies on Thursday, May 27, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., through the online platform Zoom.

To attend the conference, you must register by filling out the registration form.

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of a robust healthcare system, equipped with the technical resources and means required to to serve the public. A health crisis such as the current one aggravates the problems of waiting lists, slows down lab tests, complicates the situation for chronic patients and reduces doctor visits for ailments other than the coronavirus. Hence the importance of technological solutions to help in the early detection of diseases and pathologies.

There currently exist many devices and applications for this purpose, in addition to the possibility of developing custom-made solutions for each disease, making for improvements in the quality of care and hospital management. “Right now we have the scientific and technological capabilities to solve almost any challenge and integrate disruptive solutions. The only thing we need is to identify the cases of interest,” indicates the Safor Salut technical team.

In this regard, the event aims to provide information to promote the creation of new collaborative research and innovation projects based on this technology on the part of the research staff from Campus Gandia (UPV) and the DS Gandia, Hospital de La Pedrera, businesses from la Safor and patient associations.

To this end, the basic concepts of the existing technology related to early detection (photonic technology, artificial intelligence, apps…) applied to the health sector will be addressed and the existing technological developments and limits will be analyzed by way of examples of successful applications.
