Overall description

KIRANET is an Innovative SME, founded in 2005, whose main objective is to create value for customers and partners through the combination of technologies and expertise in the field of ICT applied to specific market sectors. Indeed, by constantly arguing with the academic world, KIRANET applies research and pre-competitive development to healthcare, manufacturing, aerospace, railway, smart cities sectors. In the last 10 years, KIRANET has lead very important e-Health projects.The aim is to continuously generate new opportunities and themes that increase the skills and potential of medical applications. Technological innovation in KIRANET products together with biomedical research are strongly transforming care processes and health services. In particular, KIRANET develops solutions for improving both people well-being and the efficiency of health/non-health services. Thus the collaboration between the research world and the health system is strengthened to test and validate new technological solutions that help citizens to manage their health more effectively while supporting health professionals.

Areas of expertise

KIRANET developed innovative systems for the Healthcare Digitization, in particular for:

  • therapy and drug management,
  • high-cost/high-risk medical devices management,
  • homecare process and equipment management.

KIRANET current healthcare offer consists in a complete system to manage the clinical and logistical process in the hospital, composed of:

  • a software suite (FID-CARE),
  • an automated trolley (FID-RUN) for meticulous therapy preparation and its bed-side administration,
  • a smart cabinet (FID-ROK) for protected and controlled storage of drugs and medical devices,
  • an automatic pocket drug dispenser (FID-RAY) for precise patient auto-administrations.

The company is ending the industrialization of these smart systems for the healthcare sector and is negotiating to obtain important industrial/commercial agreements with large players already operating in the reference market. Currently, KIRANET is engaged in the implementation of an R&D project in the “Active & healthy aging” field, named HOMECARE; its aim is to provide methodologies and technological tools in order to improve the organizational models and to facilitate their integration.

The HOMECARE project focuses on:

  • support the elderly and people with chronic or disabling diseases, by increasing control over their health;
  • encourage the patient care in a complete – but individualized – way, developing a type of assistance based on a multidisciplinary approach, by promoting mechanisms for integrating social and health services, care and rehabilitation;
  • ease the continuity of care for the elderly and non-self-sufficient people, through the implementation of the network of primary care services;
  • encourage patient empowerment in the treatment process, involving in care process objectives and chooses;
  • enhance hospital-territory integration with the correct management of the discharge process and the evaluation of the patient’s clinical and social-care conditions already during hospitalization;
  • strengthen the establishment within the territory of the single access points for taking charge of fragile people with a view to continuity of care.
Technology experience

HOMECARE project already includes some technologies and experiences that offer alternative ways of providing heathcare. As mentioned above, the interesting project modules in this case are: the tele-monitoring of the patient’s clinical parameters and the remote control of the patient’s activities by wearable and home devices (the thermometer is one of them) and remote examination and consultation by clinicians through audio-video-communication. These solutions are ideal to face challenges such as COVID-19 as they allow patient continuity of care by limiting crowding in hospitals, allocating hospital capacity to important cases, all while reducing the disease’ spread.

Areas of cooperation sought

All that we do not cover: healthier lifestyle, nutrition & supplementation, interoperability & integration, quality & outcome reporting, training & education.
