Health-e-Child’s contribution to diagnostics in paediatrics and the scientific potential of the Virtual Physiological Human approach
“THE BAMBINO GESU’ CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL and e-HEALTH. The diagnostic and predictive contribution of Health-e-Child within the heuristic perspective of the Virtual Physiological Human framework.”
Within the Integrated Projects funded in the 6th Framework Programme (FP6) of the European Union, Health-e-Child constitutes a sort of precursor of the sphere of research described as Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) in the 7th Framework Programme (FP7, 2007–2013). As such, the project and its subsequent developments seek to foster ever-expanding forms of collaboration with other projects in the same area with a view to combining the most important efforts so as to increase the diagnostic and predictive capacities based on the modelling of paediatric physiopathology.
