In 2015 the European Commission funded 5 projects under the H2020 call SC1-PHC25: Polycare; CONNECARE; ICT4LIFE; CaregiversPro-MMD; ProACT. The aim of the call was to develop innovative solutions to improve and advance home-based integrated care for people suffering from chronic conditions, including co-morbidities. The solutions developed by the 5 funded proposals address this call to advance digital integrated care increasing citizen’s independence and quality of life, allowing them to remain in their own homes, supported by families, care-givers and health professionals.
The 5 projects organized a workshop at the ICIC18 focusing on four perspectives:
- The different approaches followed by the projects while enhancing value of care to people
- Professionals’ and carers’ experience while utilizing health ICT-AT as well as feedback provided by patients
- Methodologies and processes proposed to improve integrated care system efficiency and health outcomes
Findings on the cost-efficiency of integrated care ICT-AT based solutions and their exploitation
