A Technological Infrastructure Design for a Pediatric Oncology Network
In Italy, the service of Pediatric oncology is very centralized and granted by high-specialized medical structures. In the Italian Regione Campania there are just few of such medical centers that, in case of room availability, take care of the child from the diagnosis until his/her complete healing, providing all necessary treatments along with a number of assistance services both for the patient and his parents. Regione Campania centers are often congested, causing a migration of more than 35% of the young patients towards extraterritorial centers. Also, these medical centers are often far away from the place where the patients leave, constraining them to have recurrently long traveling, sometimes just for a routine test.
