Abstract
The top management view of organizations tends not to reach consensus on the prioritization of investments in Information Systems, particularly when they must prioritize their impact on overall performance and budget constraints. This paper presents the results of applying CRUDi Framework to a bank. This allows to obtain new indicators to support the decision and alignment of investment priorities in the processes that support the business strategy. The Framework introduces a new method and tools that allow us to gauge the relative importance of Information Systems to the organizations’ businesses. © 2018, Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature.

An information system to remotely monitor oncological palliative care patients

Authors

Publication
Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing

Abstract
For oncological patients, the introduction of palliative care in the early stages of the disease’s progression can have great benefits. The Portuguese government recently introduced a program to provide home palliative care support by creating specialized mobile teams, able to track, visit and address the patients’ problems. These teams must be available for the patient, when necessary and if necessary. The teams must also have updated knowledge about the daily evolution of the patients’ health. The Douro Sul Healthcare Centers, together with the University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, developed and implemented an ICT system to track the status of each and every one of the patients. The system has several components, including: a mobile app for the patients or their caregivers to report daily how the patient’s symptoms have evolved over the last 24 h; a web app for the teams to browser their patients’ status. © Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018.

Abstract
In the later stages of the aging process, an elderly person might need the help of a family member or a caregiver. Technology can be used to help to take care of elderly persons. Autonomous systems, using special interfaces, can collect information from elderly people, which might be useful to predict and recognize health related problems or physical security problems in real time. The emerging technology of image processing, in particular, the emotion recognition, can be a good option to use in elderly care support systems. In this article, we implemented a Microsoft Azure – Emotion SDK to recognize emotion of elderly that able to detect faces and recognize emotions in real time and to be used for elderly care support. The analysis is done with an online video stream, which analyzes facial expression, so that in case of a critical emotion, e.g., if an elderly is very sad or crying, it will inform a caregiver or related entity. From the experiment, we concluded that emotion recognition is a reliable technology to be implemented in real time elderly care. © Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018.
