The group is co-leaded by Dr. Bernardo Valdivieso (MD, PhD), and Dr. Vicente Traver (Engineer, PhD), senior lecturer at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia. This multidisciplinary group was born from the long-term collaboration between the two entities and is composed by 8 senior researchers. Additionally, the team includes more than 25 collaborators (junior researchers, technicians, assistants and students) and yearly hosts 2 international researchers. As a result of its trajectory the group has stable links with relevant entities: METRONIC, PHILIPS, VTT, Norwegian Centre for Telemedicine, AALTO University, ERASMUS University, HOPE, HARVARD, TAIWAN University, and FRAUNHOFER.

The scientific activity is focused in the reengineering of healthcare processes and the application of ICT for the management of chronic conditions. The group has more than 10 years of experience in international ehealth research and has participated in 30 European projects. From 2009, the group has participated in 18 competitive projects, leading 9 of them, and receiving more than 3M€funding, some of them in collaboration with groups involved in REDISSEC.  Currently, the group coordinates a chronic disease management service, deployed in the Health Department and integrated with the different care levels including a predictive tool to identify patients in risk of hospitalization. The group is participating in six clinical studies in the domain, (several multicentric and international), the most relevant being a clinical trial (GECHRONIC) involving 495 patients aiming at evaluating a comprehensive management technology platform.
