In the future, no one will need to die from lifestyle diseases.
Affordable and high-quality care with a human face will be globally available with health technology innovation. Health maintenance, care and risk assessment will become proactive and personalized thanks to a wealth of actionable health, wellness and daily-living information.
By 2030 we will be able to detect an increased and action requiring personal risk for at least one major lifestyle disease one year earlier than is currently possible. This requires developing of novel sensor techniques and advanced data analytics, for which VTT has the required excellence.
These are the cornerstones of our approach:
Preventive health care by measuring and interacting with citizens and providing tools and mindset to make the right lifestyle choices.
Guarantee relevance and uptake in practice by strong continuous multi-disciplinary co-operation.
Personalised diagnostics and care by increasing knowledge on disease mechanisms with AI and other technologies.
Optimizing healthcare processes when resource-limited healthcare systems struggle with the ever increasing amount of people who need care.
