The main innovation aspects in ViTAM are the following: - Simple and usable user interfaces. User interfaces are asymmetrical, differing from the patient and the professional. While the patient’s interface is extremely simplified, the professional’s side keeps a slightly higher complexity to keep control of the videoconferencing. This approach facilitates at most the use of technology by non-experts. - Specially designed for medical and social consultations. It implements two innovative operation modes not available in the market: the online consultation with waiting room and the videoconferencing call centre (coming soon). - Multiplatform and Multidevice. It is multiplatform (Windows, Mac, Android, iOS) and multidevice (PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone). - Easy integration. It can be easily integrated in or with other applications, as well as connect with external services (e.g. electronic health record, calendar). - Customisation. It can be customised not only in terms of graphical user interface but also in the workflow so as to implement new personalised videoconferencing scenarios. - Single and multiple videoconferencing. It offers 1 to 1 videoconferencing and multivideoconferencing in a single and unified interface. - Privacy. It ensures privacy protection by providing communications and data protection and enables its deployment on certified medical data management servers. - Sensors. It can be implemented as a background application running on the device, which can receive incoming connection requests, which can be useful when linked to sensors data alarms (e.g. blood pressure).

The use of Information Technologies (IT) in the day-by-day operations is growing dramatically. Nowadays, it is possible to perform a lot of actions at home and there are not temporal restrictions. The electronic tickets are an example, we can buy a transport ticket or a movie ticket. In this sense, the smart-phones are a key element because users can buy the e-ticket from any place and can carry tickets while they are moving, and validate them in order to get access to the service. Moreover, the e-ticketing systems must offer the same properties of the paper tickets, i.e. they must be secure, anonymous and transferable. Our system provides a secure method that is anonymous and that allows the ticket transferability between users. We are interested in licensing our method. The e-ticketing system proposed can be used in differents services, so that service providers can adapt the system in order to meet their requirements. The system provides to the users the same properties of some of the paper tickets. The tickets are anonymous and users can transfer them to other users without the interaction of the ticket issuer or the provider. The privacy for the users must be seriously taken into account. The acceptance of a system that could control all the movements of a determined user could lead to a privacy threat. Thus, the users could be reluctant to use a system without the proper privacy protection. Moreover, each user could send her ticket and grant permission to another user. Nonetheless, if one user does some fraud the anonymity can be revoked and the user is identified. The system can be deployed in the cloud for the service providers. The users can use their smart-phones to obtain, use or transfer the e-tickets.
