Project deliverables

  • First Workshop report

The first workshop of the eHealth Innovation project dealt with ICT solutions to address the challenge of chronic disease management (CDM) for an ageing population. It assembled a wide variety of stakeholders from contributors, policy-makers and industry. At the core of the insights gained in the workshop was the recognition that technological questions per se are rarely the barrier to more innovation in ICT enabled delivery of chronic disease care. Instead, the focus of future efforts should be on understanding the business context and the diffusion of eHealth innovations.


  • Integrated care - Lessons learnt

The present deliverable provides an overview of chronic disease management and integrated care approaches, with a focus on concrete experience from implementation. It concludes with a set of recommendations for policy and decision-makers.

  • Second Workshop report

The second workshop held in may 2012 in Copenhagen elaborated on the question how health systems can deliver more integrated care to chronically ill patients and how patients can be empowered to care for an co-produce their own health. The debate on integrated care and well-being as the new paradigm for healthcare services delivery is a key element of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA). Chapter 5 of this report synthesises key elements of this plan and describes its repercussions on the planning of work in the eHealth innovation project.


  • Patient-centred care scenarios

This deliverable focuses on the shift of emphasis that is now taking place across Europe, especially for the management of long term conditions and of primary prevention, in supporting patients to play a more active role in their own health and healthcare. In this deliverable some example scenarios of person centred care are presented as storyboards which have been inspired by some of the case studies already published in the project Deliverable 1.2.


  • Third Workshop report

Organised by the eHealth Innovation project workshop participants presented and discussed themes and challenges related to the topics of Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA) action groups A1 and B3. In the discussions on health literacy and adherence as well as on integrated care for chronic diseases a main focus was laid on person-centred health and care services supported by ICT.


  • Main findings on patient-centred care

This report sheds light on the policy-environment of person centred care and its relation to innovative ICT supported health services. At the core of a more patient-centred healthcare system is an informed, autonomous citizen who is empowered to make decisions about his/her health jointly with healthcare professionals. In the second half the report presents the future of ICT enabled healthcare services for patients through scenario stories.


  • European eHealth infostructure: Vision and Expected impacts (inluding 4th workshop report)

This report, which has been produced in collaboration with the SemanticHealthNet Network of Excellence, is in two parts. The first part (Section 2) discusses several perspectives on interoperability relating to person centred care, from the viewpoint of different members of the eHealth Innovation consortium. The second part (Section 3) is a report of a joint workshop held with SemanticHealthNet on the sustainability of semantic interoperability, since this will be an ongoing process and require continual investment to keep pace with advances in medicine and in health and social care services.

  • Fifth Workshop report: Dissemination of final findings

The objective of the event was to present innovations and gather audience insights on the potential of ICT solutions to integrate care and support person centred care, including home care. The event comprised of four different workshop sessions, each on focusing on a different aspect of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA) B3 and C2 Action Group activities – namely multi-actor collaborative care pathways, user empowerment, change management and ICT/ Teleservices/ eHealth.

The European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA) Action Group B3 Action Plan is a product of intensive work by the B3 Action Group, focussed on the Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) specific action – “replicating and tutoring integrated care for chronic diseases, including remote monitoring at regional level”. The Action Plan builds on the objectives, targets and deliverables, as suggested in the SIP for the area of Integrated Care (B3 Action Group).

This compilation of good practices in integrated care consists of 37 good practices which have been provided by the members of the Action Group on integrated care of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing. The collection of good practices is an ongoing activity of the Action Group, and is part of a wider exercise to define a methodology for the deployment of integrated care.
