The idea and vision
Everyone wants to live an active and healthy life and to live as long as possible. The developments in science and new technologies inspire confidence in imminent solutions to the problems of radical prolongation of life, and the prevention and treatment of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Cell products and gene therapies are already here. They are the present for biomedical science, but still the future for health care.

In developed countries with universal social security coverage, everyone has access to qualified medical care, preventive programs and balanced nutrition. This is not true for developing countries and developed countries with a market health system. 90% of the world's population lives in such "non-ideal" conditions.
But do the best healthcare systems have no problems?

People turn to doctors. They seek help for a check-up, for advice concerning disease treatment or the prevention of the complications, to discuss their future health perspectives. Medical help should be accessible, timely, effective and safe.
In reality, people face many of the following obstacles:
Information asymmetry
Doctors and patients have different qualifications in matters of health. Patients cannot effectively evaluate and choose a product or service, but must pay for them directly or indirectly. For them the "seller" diagnoses the illness and prescribes treatment, or recommends prevention.
Access to medical records
Patients have limited access to their medical records and often cannot see or correct them. They get instructions on what will be best for them, but do not control important personal information.
Continuity in medical records
In many countries, doctors cannot obtain the medical records of their patients from other hospitals and clinics. Sometimes the continuity of medical information affects the outcomes of treatment.
Length of medical consultations
Attendance time is limited. Patients meet with their doctor for a 10-minute consultation. During this time doctor has to make medical records, make appointments, examine the patient, discusses with them recommendations and possible alternatives, and perhaps reassure patients. It's difficult to have time to do all this in the few allotted minutes, and most of the time doctors are writing or typing, and patients are waiting.
Queues / Waiting time
Getting an appointment with a doctor can take weeks or even months. The same situation occurs with many diagnostic tests. As a result, a person spends months waiting and during this time does not receive real help. This is not a simple inconvenience. The life quality and expectancy of a person depends on the timeliness of medical care.
The patient cannot or does not want to wait for "free" medical care or the necessary examinations are not covered by insurance. They have to pay for medical services themselves. In the US, for example, paying bills for treatment is the reason for more than half of all household bankruptcies.
Health professionals' knowledge and skills
If patients are diagnosed with a serious illness, they "blindly" follow the doctor's recommendations and do not have a realistic opportunity to check if there is a more effective way. Patients count on the knowledge, skills and expertise of their doctor; on the doctor's experience and ability to make the best decisions about the latest medical science. But the doctors themselves are in a difficult situation, choosing how to "manage their patients" on the basis of their own qualifications and experience, and, perhaps, the views and opinions of colleagues. A doctor cannot study the hundreds of thousands of new annual publications in their field, even if they limit themselves to secondary sources: Cochrane reviews, meta-analyzes or randomized controlled clinical trials of treatment and prevention methods. Do all the doctors really want to constantly learn, maintain a high professional level and help the patient in the most effective way?
Generalized vs. personalized practices
Patients can receive three types of medical prescriptions. The first ones do not have sufficient evidence of efficacy and safety, and are based on one's own experience, beliefs and the doctor's views. In this case, the patient on one occasion receives various recommendations from several doctors. The second ones are proven to be effective and based on the results of high-quality research. This practice is known as "evidence-based medicine". Preferred practices change and are refined as new information becomes available. The third ones are based on the results of high-quality research, but take particular account of the individual characteristics of the patient. This is "personalized medicine". The first ones are most common. More useful but less often encountered, sometimes fatefully, are the second or third types.
A patient has to wait for weeks for medical assistance, pay for it, being unsure about the qualifications of the doctor and their access to medical records. Can this be changed and when?

Yes, and there are seven reasons to foresee the changes:
Show more
The total number of mobile phone users in the world by 2018 is forecasted to exceed 2.5 billion and more than half of all mobile phones will be smartphones that have access to the internet and social networks.
People already receive medical data from wearable gadgets: measuring the heart rate and blood pressure, recording electrocardiograms and performing ultrasounds, evaluating body temperature, glucose levels and blood saturation. There are mobile systems for electroencephalography, spirometry, measuring intraocular pressure and analyzing emotional states.
The synergy of clinical medicine, health science and big data management tools will allow people to maintain health, live longer and better, delay aging. to cure and prevent most of diseases. Millions of useful articles and books are stored electronically. All it takes now is broad high quality access to personalized information; information that answers your questions about health, nutrition, lifestyle, proper medication, preventive intake of dietary supplements, physical activity, vaccination, treatment of diseases, improving life with chronic diseases and more.
This is impossible without the modern technologies of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), Machine Learning (M.L.), Natural Language Processing (NLP), as no patient or medical professional can successfully manage huge amount of medical information including medical research. Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is used in the management of "smart cities", the financial sector, production, agriculture, energy. The health sector is no exception. Over the next 10 years, a qualitative leap is expected in the development of the information technologies, and their successful application at the different levels of government, insurance companies, hospitals, doctors and individual patients.
People understand more and more about health issues, they are interested in avoiding illness or finding treatment for themselves and their beloved ones. Faced with the disease, some of them look for scientific and popular publications on the internet, and try to apply the information they find. Individuals can now become centers for collecting and analyzing health information for themselves and their families. They can make decisions about choosing a doctor, a consultant, the method of diagnosis and treatment, the timing of the beginning and completion of therapy. They can manage their health and their lives.
Telemedicine can, in theory, connect patients and doctors, clients and the health care consultants through a worldwide network, quickly, without queuing, regardless the distance. But if any non-urgent health issue is to be solved by online reception, the next issue is a sufficient number of highly qualified doctors and consultants. Doctors fail all the time even in the best healthcare system to provide the most update and most effective treatment options, as they do not have time to follow rapidly growing medical research. The delays in accommodating medical research data into clinical practice can take decades, and it is critical in many conditions like for cancer patients. Medical research knowledge is significantly underutilized, which means that patients are deprived of their changes to live longer and healthier. There many evidence-based preventive interventions capable to delay pathological processes of aging and prolong healthier lifespan, but they are not getting prescribed to the patients due to inertia in healthcare systems. People often face issues they are uncomfortable to bring to a doctor, like emotional problems, weight loss and maintenance, psychoactive substance use or questions about sex lives. While consulting medical professionals is important in many of such cases, access to the most up-to-date scientific information is a lot better than unqualified advice one can find on the internet.
Blockchain technology can significantly simplify and secure the work with the health data. Using smartphones and computers, people will be able to effectively manage their health: record personal medical data, take tests and fill out forms and applications, choose doctors, get their conclusions and appointments, ask questions, consult, exchange information, voluntarily provide access to the information to one or another specialist and establish, pay for or evaluate services with crypto-currencies. And all this can be done safely, anonymously, and efficiently.
All of us constantly face the problem of timely access to personalized (i.e., reflecting our own bodies and circumstances and the information we need) information on how to maintain, strengthen our health, how to identify a disease and recover from it, and to do this most effectively and cheaper. Ultimately, the question we all live with is how to live longer and better.

The eHealth First project will allow everyone to get the most up-to-date, relevant and personalized information about their health on the basis of an analysis of individual data, and an extensive library of world medical research literature and considerations of the features of the local health systems.

Screening algorithms, individualized diagnoses of the most common diseases and personalized treatment and prevention plans are just a part of what this IT platform will provide to each user.

And for the health professionals, an additional, publicly available solution for automatic analysis of medical publications will be created.

The right and in-time information is the key to health and longevity.

EHF is an IT-platform, web- and mobile applications for health and longevity management, support of diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases.
Using EHF everyone can:
✓ get the most up-to-date, relevant and personalized information about health status, based on an analysis of individual data and an extensive library of medical research literature;
✓ get accurate evidence-based solutions for health problems and risks;
✓ find and communicate with optimal health care providers (applying multiple selection criteria).
The EHF Apps will be used by healthy people, patients, healthcare professionals, researchers, and businesses.
The concept
The project is developing and implementing an innovative IT platform for screening and optimal algorithms for maintaining health and diagnosing, treating and preventing various diseases and conditions. A project which is unique.

The platform will include a number of the most sensitive and specific, validated questionnaires with highest possible currently diagnostic effectiveness.

A range of the most sensitive diagnostic methods and the most effective medical interventions (taking into account the need to clarify the diagnosis and prescriptions of the attending physician), as well as most evidence-based lifestyle recommendations will be available on the basis of an innovative open medical knowledge platform in the field of aging and robust longevity. The open platform is being developed using A.I., such as Natural Language Processing methods for the ever-growing body of publications in medical science, machine learning, and neural networks. As a result, the IT platform will reduce the obsolescence of medical knowledge.

The open and free part of the platform will be an ontological network replenished using natural language and neural network processing methods semi-automatically (with expert pre-moderation) with the participation of both project staff and authorized qualified volunteers. The inference and visualization of search queries in a user-friendly intuitive interface based on the ontology project team has already created will greatly facilitate the search for scientific information, and the synthesis and acquisition of new scientific knowledge. This will be one of the first open systems for the deep processing of scientific medical texts and the first such system in the field of aging and longevity research in the world.
The Health Management Platform EHF is a web portal and mobile application with an integrated expert system that provides advisory services in a B2C and B2B formats for healthy people, patients, health professionals, and health-related businesses and researchers.

The collection and storage of users' personal data will comply with the norms of the legislation in the field of personal data protection.

After registration, a user will be asked to undergo preliminary screening. The questionnaire estimates health indicators, biological age, a frailty index, and give primary assessments of health status.

After passing the initial screening, the EHF App provides a list of basic recommendations for a user and offers to undergo additional diagnostic tests, including specialized validated questionnaires, laboratory and instrumental tests, medical consultations.

For each specialized diagnostic module, a separate algorithm will be developed that allows to clarify the danger of certain pathological conditions or diseases and to give specific recommendations, including additional biochemical and other tests.

If users have started working with the module but do not have the necessary tests to perform diagnosis within this module, they can return to the module later, after the necessary tests have been completed. The system saves user information for each diagnostic module, and a user can continue to work with the system at any convenient time.

The results include assessment of the risk of diseases, advice on optimal medical tests, use of drugs, medical devices, food supplements, and lifestyle changes.

The accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of EHF tests are to be constantly improved. Users will be able to get tested again and get up-to-date advice.

The EHF Platform will include:
an expert system for the primary diagnosis of the most common diseases and conditions on the basis of automated algorithms obtained on the basis of the principles of evidence-based medicine;
the most up-to-date information on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, therapeutic windows, contraindications, drug interactions, semi-automatically updated following new clinical guidelines, systematic reviews and meta-analyses (it will be developed using deep NLP methods);
indices of the biological age, including the frailty index;
a general module for the primary prevention of age-related diseases;
modules for people with chronic diseases (including those with metabolic syndromes, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer etc.).

Arnold Mitnitski
Advisor in Mathematical Modeling of complex biomedical systems, Systems Biology of the aging process, Advanced Data Analysis.
Ph.D., Research Professor of Medicine at the Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada. He is a multidisciplinary scientist with research Interest in mathematical modeling of complex biomedical systems / systems biology of the aging process, and advanced data analysis.
Prof. Mitnitski is known for the development of the Frailty Index (FI, suggested together with Dr. K. Rockwood in 2001). The FI integrates a large amount of individual's health information (generally available in typical databases) in a single number and related to the biological age of the individuals. This FI is universally accepted as a valuable utility measure of health in individuals and populations which allows to stratify people by the risk of adverse outcomes (mortality, entering nursing home, time spending in hospital, etc.). It has numerous applications in a variety of areas, including epidemiology, clinical medicine, biology, and most recently even macro-economics. The FI has a strong theoretical foundation in a stochastic dynamic model of deficit accumulation based on the organism- environment interaction. Most recently, a new approach based on the complex dynamical network (being developed with the colleagues of the Department of Physics) allowed bringing the theoretical understanding of the origin of the FI to the next level. Dr. Mitnitski published over 200 peer reviewed papers (most of them for the last 15 years), 136 are available in the PubMed, 23 papers were sited over 100 times; his (most conservative) Thomson Reuters h-index=40 (Google Scholar h-index=49). He is a member of the editorial boards/associate editor of the scientific journals: Biogerontology, BMC Geriatrics, Frontiers in Public Health, Journal of Aging Science, and a reviewer for the large number of journals, including Experimental Gerontology, Mechanisms of Ageing and Development, Journal of Gerontology, Age and Ageing, Demography. He is also a member of the College of Reviewers for the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR). Being an elected Fellow of the Gerontological Society of America (GSA), he organized several symposia at the GSA annual meetings related to the Systems Biology of Aging and the Biological Age determination.
