Exploiting telecomunications to improve quality of living

LIGTHING SUITE: is an integrated management of the local infrastructural networks and construction of the Smart City environments.
Enabled services:

  • planning of electricity consumption and maintenance. Energy saving is estimated within a range between 15% (light produced by highefficiency lamps, e.g. LEDs) and over 30% in the case of light produced by old style lamps (e.g. sodium vapour or incandescence). Added to these values is the option of varying lighting by switching on and/or reducing the intensity of individual lamp posts;
  •  video surveillance;
  • digital communication with citizens and users in general (e.g. tourists);

SMART BUILDING: Intelligent management and automation of buildings thanks to specifically designed solutions able to be implemented on a project basis through the components of the Lighting Suite and Nuvola IT Energreen offers. The energy saved can be estimated at around 10%, if only the Metering & Reporting function is implemented, but it can rise to over 50% for specific efficiency projects.

SMART INCLUSION is a service that aims to make life easier for children in the oncology and haematology departments of hospitals, allowing them to keep in touch with their schools. A single technological platform integrates remote teaching, entertainment and clinical data management services, allowing hospitalised children to participate actively in school lessons, play recordings of the lessons they have missed, do exercises and use individual self-tuition courses. Moreover, the children can communicate with their loved ones through video calls and access various entertainment programmes (cartoons, films, documentaries and sport). The medical staff can in turn use the system to display all the clinical files of patients with the option of updating them.
Smart Inclusion is currently installed in several hospitals in the cities of Bologna, Rome, Padua, Florence, Genoa and Turin.

NUVOLA IT HOME DOCTOR  allows patients suffering from chronic illnesses, or in post-hospital care, to monitor their physiological parameters (body weight, blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen levels, glycaemia, lung capacity, electrocardiogram, etc.) directly from their own homes or in properly equipped facilities (medical centres, medical practices etc.). The system consists of a technological platform and software configured on the patient's mobile phone (or alternatively a PC or tablet) and on the healthcare personnel's PC. Based on the plans established by the doctor, patients receive reminders on their mobile phones regarding the measurements to be taken, they take these measurements using portable electro-medical devices equipped with a Bluetooth interface and, using their mobile phone they send the measurement automatically to the online platform.
The service, the benefits of which include improving patient quality of life and optimising costs for the healthcare facility, is currently operational in several Italian healthcare facilities, including the Molinette and Regina Margherita hospitals in Piedmont and the Palermo and Rieti local health authorities.
In order to enhance the functionality of the service and increase Telecom Italia's presence in the social care solutions sector, experimental activities are under way in various areas:

  • the introduction of new devices intended to increase the number of diseases that can be monitored (e.g. monitoring bed sores through superficial photographs of the skin);
  • the use of new Internet-connected TVs to improve the usability of healthcare services using various ways of displaying measures and accessing services;
  • prevention and wellness services aimed at providing solutions for healthy people to help them maintain, if not improve, their health, particularly in unconventional environments such as schools or workplaces;
  • services to support mobility in patients with severe limitations who lose their way very easily and might find themselves in dangerous places, using tracking solutions and mechanisms for family members or Service Centres to provide assistance.
