Unification of Treatments and Interventions for Tinnitus Patients - UNITI

cbms 1We are happy to announce that UNITI was present with three papers at the 34th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (IEEE CBMS 2021). CBMS is the premier conference for computer-based medical systems, providing a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and technologies between academic and industrial scientists.

The following UNITI papers were presented:

  • Shahania, S., Unnikrishnan, V., Pryss, R., Kraft, R., Schobel, J., Hannemann, R., Schlee, W., & Spiliopoulou, M. (2021, June). User-centric vs whole-stream learning for EMA prediction.

Acceptance Certificate ijerph 1229284We are happy to announce that our manuscript on "Systematic Review on Healthcare and Societal Costs of Tinnitus" has been published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) and is available online: 

Our comprehensive review shows a gap in the knowledge about the economic burden of tinnitus on healthcare systems, patients and society. The few available studies show considerable expenses due to healthcare and indirect costs, while out-of-pocket costs appear to be less financially burdensome. Comprehensive health economic evaluations are needed to fill the gaps in current knowledge, using a unified method with reliable and standardized tools.

Tinnitus special issue 01

A special issue on "Novel Treatments and Diagnosis for Chronic Tinnitus" is organised by UNITI members Dr. Winfried Schlee and Prof. Dr. Jose A. Lopez-Escamez. The challenge is to improve the diagnostic procedures of tinnitus and assign the appropriate treatment or combination of treatments to the individual tinnitus patient. With this Special Issue, we want to concentrate on innovative diagnostic procedures and novel treatment strategies that aim to improve the patient journey from diagnosis to the best-suited therapeutic approach for the individual patient. In this respect, research papers on individualized treatment decisions and decision support systems are also strongly encouraged. Original research papers and systematic reviews of high quality are welcome.
