CBIM is a no-profit research institution, founded in 1992 by the University of Pavia and some Scientific Biomedical Research Institutes, aimed to promote ICT based innovative services in the Healthcare area. CBIM is partner of Ministry of Health for the Italian Biomedical Research Information System management and since the foundation worked in the design and management of several Italian large scale Hospital Information Systems.
A significant International experience in this field has been achieved in Argentina (2006-2008) with the first assessment of DGR activity reimbursement in 13 Hospitals, as result of an International tender within the bilateral cooperation agreement Italia-Argentina.
In 2016, this cooperation has been further strengthened with the participation LASALUS project funded by the European Community under the Erasmus + program in partnership with 10 European and South American universities.
Characterized by a long standing background in the development, testing and validation of complex information systems for the healthcare sector, CBIM has participated in FP-IV-VI (M2DM, Homey, MyHearth) and in FP-VII to the COMOESTAS project coordinated by Mondino National Neurological Institute Foundation.
Recently a new investigation activity, aiming to provide an integrated platform, supporting research and development of methodologies oriented to traceability and food safety, has been promoted by the participation to the “Interregional Research Centre for Food Safety & Health” project funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research.
Since 2011 CBIM – in partnership with Mondino National Neurological Institute Foundation (Pavia) and with Centre de Recerca en Enginyeria Biomèdica (CREB)-Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (Barcelona) - has been working on the design and development of a 3D virtual environment-based platform for the screening, early diagnosis, characterization and management of cognitive impairments.
For this research activity, CBIM participate to the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing, Action Group A3 ‘Prevention and early diagnosis of frailty and functional decline, both physical and cognitive, in older people’
On the same topic, in 2015 CBIM participated with the Don Carlo Gnocchi Foundation and the University of Florence to the tender FAS Health of Tuscany Region, haring the GOAL project funded.
Actually (2013) the CBIM staff is composed by more than 50 Engineers, including 22 Young Researchers (under 35).
