ODIN vision is that as Evidence-Based Medicine revolutionized medicine with data-driven procedures, so data-driven management (enabled by Industry 4.0 tech) can revolutionize hospital management.
Eleven hospital critical challenges have been identified, which ODIN will face combining robotics, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to empower workers, medical locations, logistics, and interaction with the territory. ODIN will deploy technologies along three lines of intervention: empowering workers (AI, cybernetics and bionics), introducing autonomous and collaborative robots and enhancing medical locations with IoT. These areas of intervention will be piloted in six hospitals (in Spain, France, Italy, Poland, The Netherland, Germany), via seven use cases, spanning from clinical to logistic, including patient management, disaster preparedness and hospital resiliency.ODIN pilot will be a federation of multicentre longitudinal cohort studies, demonstrating the safety, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of ODIN technologies for the enhancement of hospital safety, productivity and quality. Use-case protocols will be approved by the local hospital ethical committees, in order to assure the highest quality of the study, while providing a pragmatic solution for the scaling-up of the ODIN technological solutions and business models in a variety of local ecosystems.
