The Norima Digital Healthcare & Transformation practice is building on nearly 10-years of work carried out by the Norima Innovations – Norima Consulting division called Norima Innovations. The Innovations division offers new technology products and explores new business models for the healthcare sector in North America and Europe. Since 2012, Norima’s innovation activities have been supported by the National Research Council – Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP).
Norima Innovations is currently working on several health products and services with particular focus on applications for supportive home environments, rehabilitation, and out-of-hospital care delivery.
Norima R&D consists of early experimentation and work in the areas of remote monitoring, home automation, video content analytics, environmental, medical and consumer wearable data analytics, care specific algorithms for real-time decision support, and long-term trends identification, privacy and anonymization for big health data applications and related areas.
Since 2015, Norima has been executing an R&D project in the healthcare industry within a consortium of 18 leading European companies and institutions, thus being the first Canadian SME that takes part in ITEA3 Eureka Strategic ICT cluster programme. In the ITEA3 Medolution project, together with partners from France, Germany, the Netherlands and Turkey, Norima is conducting research and development on long-term monitoring and real-time decision support technologies that integrate professional and user-created data and can be applied in a patient’s home environment. Norima’s collaboration and participation in Medolution was featured as a Success Story under the National Research Council of Canada Industry Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) in January 2018.
