01/01/2017 The new "TrentinoSalute4.0" Competence Center on Digital Healthcare, which is jointly governed by the Autonomous Province of Trento, the Provincial Healthcare System (APSS) and FBK, started operating on January 1, 2017.

TrentinoSalute4.0 is a shared space and a joint laboratory that supports the development of digital healthcare, in addition to coordinating existing initiatives. It represents the meeting point between the healthcare system, research and the local communities, becoming an instrument of cohesion between the guidelines of healthcare planning, the innovation needs expressed by the Provincial Healthcare System and the opportunities offered by research and new digital technologies, to transform the technical-organizational solutions experimented with into innovative services for the health industry.
By developing and disseminating “eHealth” technologies, citizen-patients are enabled to connect with healthcare providers, with their families and with other citizens, as well as to manage their own health in day-to-day life through various devices (computers, smartphones, tablets, sensors, etc.), wherever they may be (home, work, vacation), and in times of need.
