The paper describes a cloud-based platform that utilizes Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Explainable AI techniques to deliver evidence-based, personalized interventions to individuals over 65 suffering or at risk of hearing loss, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairments, balance disorders, or mental health issues, while supporting efficient remote monitoring and clinician-driven guidance. As part of the SMART BEAR integrated project, this platform has been developed to support its large-scale clinical trials. The platform consists of a standards-based data harmonization and management layer, as well as a security component, a Big Data Analytics system, a Clinical Decision Support system, and a dashboard component to facilitate efficient data collection across pilot sites.
