The transformation of health care delivery in leading hospitals in Europe with AI-based technologies

What is ODIN?

ODIN is a large-scale pilot project that integrates next-generation technology, Data, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things, Blockchain, digital platforms, and interoperability standards to build the digital solutions that solve unmet hospital organizational problems, focused on but not limited to global integration of in-hospital logistics, clinical processes and patient flow management optimization, medical assets management in clinical engineering setting and disaster preparedness.

The project focuses on the following three areas:

  • The automation and optimization of the clinical process
  • The management of clinical engineering assets
  • The management of disaster events

The ODIN solution is aimed at coordinating and orchestrating new key enabling resources (KER) like AI, robotics, IoT, and data-based applications and systems, along with legacy information systems, to solve those real problems. ODIN technology will be initially deployed in 7 leading hospitals in Europe for pilot evaluation, and then extended to new hospitals through the Open Call contest.  

Project objectives

ODIN aims to fulfil the following objectives:

  • Setting up an open and secure decentralized digital platform
  • Building a dynamic and collaborative co-creation mechanism for Innovative Procurement Journey (IPJ) between healthcare suppliers and providers
  • Implementing a longitudinal cohort study
  • Setting up a communication and dissemination programme and an exploitation strategy in order to reach a critical mass of users and business partners
