Il Pensiero Scientifico Editore, with the scientific support of the Department of Epidemiology of the Regione Lazio, designed and started in 2016 the Forward Project. Its aim is to reflect and discuss what is going to become relevant in the near future within the health sector. Health care is changing due to the introduction of organizational improvements, technological innovations, and clinical and therapeutic advances.
The Forward Project is also a useful Institutional tool to disseminate independent information regarding clinical appropriateness, public health strategies, diagnostic and clinical decision-making and to discuss the forthcoming landscapes that will be emerging in the health field.
The Project is linked to Recenti Progressi in Medicina, a monthly academic scientific journal established in 1946 and indexed in major international bibliographic databases. The Editorial Board of the journal serves as scientific reference, supported by an Advisory Committee made up by prominent experts involved in the National and Regional Health System.
Forward pays a special attention to the communication aspects of content dissemination. First of all, opinion mining and sentiment analysis of the Italian health professionals is the preliminary step of the Project. Then, Forward offers video interviews, timelines, infographics integrating the traditional communication.
