THEME 3: ICT FOR HEALTH, AGEING WELL AND INCLUSION

The objectives proposed under Theme 3, ICT for health, ageing well and inclusion, are inspired by extensive consultation with stakeholders, in particular via the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP AHA) and the eHealth Action Plan23. The work planned in this area takes into account all stages in the life of citizens that impact their active and healthy ageing, namely: 1) prevention and health promotion; 2) care and cure, and 3) independent living and social inclusion of elderly people. The image below explains the relation between the objectives of Theme 3 and the three main areas listed

above:

–  –  –

Activities in these areas aim to pursue a triple win for Europe:

• improving the sustainability and efficiency of health care and social systems;

• fostering the conditions to make it possible for more EU citizens to lead healthy, active and independent lives while ageing;

• boosting and improving the competitiveness of the markets for innovative products and services, thus creating new opportunities for businesses.

This is consistent with the overall approach of the EIP AHA whose final objective is to add, by 2020, two healthy life years to the average healthy life-span of European citizens.

The theme 3 will cover the following objectives:

Objective 3.1: Wide deployment of integrated care services;

– Objective 3.2: Towards open and personalised solutions for active and independent – living;

–  –  –

Objective 3.3 : Digital capacity and skills;

– Objective 3.4: Fall prevention network for older persons;

– Objective 3.5: Large scale deployment of telehealth services for chronic conditions – management;

Objective 3.6: Adoption, taking up and testing of standards and specifications for – eHealth interoperability;

Objective 3.7: Community Building on Active and Healthy Ageing.

– The total funding available for this theme is 24 M€ and actions will be funded under the objectives outlined below.

All proposals submitted under this theme should give appropriate attention to eaccessibility (which is the usability of ICT regardless of persons' ability, e-skills and impairments), in particular taking into account the needs of persons with functional limitations, such as older persons or persons with disabilities.

The ICT-PSP projects funded in this theme are expected to contribute to the European best practice exchange website (www.epractice.eu) as one of their dissemination platforms, becoming active members of the community and contributing to its overall success.

Objective 3.1: Wide deployment of integrated care services Funding instrument: Pilot type A - It is intended to support one action for 8M€ EU contribution Focus and outcomes The focus of the pilot is on the role ICT services and applications can play in integrated care (i.e. the integration of healthcare, social care and self-care) for any kind of health/living conditions, including issues such as dementia and mobility with impairment.

The aim of the action will be to unlock new services and value chains in active and healthy ageing including the involvement of new actors (such as reimbursement scheme providers, insurers, regional development planners), leading to operational deployment of new care pathways and organisational models for integrated care.

Conditions and characteristics

The pilot will:

Involve public authorities, providers of tele-care and tele-health services, associations – of care professionals and informal care givers, patient and elderly organisations, reimbursement scheme providers, insurers, procurers, regional development planners.

Validate the necessary organisational changes to support integrated care for improved – health and wellness. This will include: patient care pathways; training of care teams, informal care givers and patients; reimbursement models and synergies between social care and healthcare budgets.

CIP ICT PSP work programme 2012

The pilot shall contribute to the implementation and integration of actions as outlined in – the Strategic Implementation Plan of the EIP on Active and Healthy Ageing 24 Ensure the deployment of integrated care models in several Member States or – associated countries to result in a convincing case for large-scale deployment. The expectation is to involve 8 or more Member States or associated countries25; targeting in particular a significant number of national and/or regional authorities responsible for health and social care. To facilitate exchange of good practice and coaching of the regions involved, the pilot shall reflect a good balance between early adopter and follower regions.





Develop guidelines for procuring, organising and implementing integrated care building – upon innovative eHealth and active ageing services.

Gather, and make available, evidence on remote patient monitoring and tele-care and – evaluation of their impact in line with widely recognised methodologies in the field of health and social care.

Deliver a credible and ambitious exploitation plan (dealing with both the sustainability and the expansion of services).

Ensure dissemination and communication activities constitute an integral part of the proposed work, addressing not only experts, but also public authorities and relevant stakeholders.

Proposals should include specific and realistic quantitative indicators to monitor – progress at different stages in the project's lifetime.

Expected impact:

Through its guidelines and support to Member States or associated countries and – regions, contribution towards a long-term sustainability of a replicable plan for panEuropean deployment of integrated care services.

Contribution to improved communication and co-operation between health, social and – informal care institutions.

Provision of practical guidelines and solutions to address organisational, legal, – regulatory and reimbursement issues for integrated care.

Encourage deployment of innovative organisational and business models and new – operational practices, based on new communication protocols and procedures, multidisciplinary teams and a multi-stakeholders approach.

Enhance the body of evidence on sustainable and optimised management and on cost effectiveness linked to integrated healthcare solutions, including efficient and holistic care at home.

Raise awareness and knowledge of patients and the elderly population of the benefits of – integrated care.

Contribute to the competitiveness of the European ICT industry.

– 24 http://ec.europa.eu/research/innovation-union/pdf/active-healthy-ageing/steeringgroup/implementation_plan.pdf#view=fit&pagemode=none 25 This corresponds to the expected level of involvement. It is a target and does not constitute an eligibility criterion.

–  –  –

Contribute to the adoption by other parties of common ICT-based components/building – blocks necessary for the deployment of integrated care services.

Objective 3.2: Towards open and personalised solutions for active and independent living Funding instrument: Pilot Type B - It is intended to support one pilot action for 5 M€ EU contribution Focus and outcomes Provision of flexible and cost-effective ICT based solutions in support of active and independent living of older people that are based on open standards and are interoperable has been identified as a major requirement for large scale uptake of such solutions. There is especially a need for solutions which are flexible and can be easily adapted to multiple and changing needs in differing organisational settings.

Pilots in this area will aim to demonstrate the socio-economic benefits of open service platforms as a basis for delivery of relevant active and independent living services that support older people and their carers.

Conditions and characteristics

The pilot shall:

Bring together at least 5 organisations responsible for delivery of independent living – services willing to work together across Europe in specification and implementation as well as measuring the socio-economic benefits of this approach in comparison to traditional approaches.

Demonstrate the capability to deliver a set of services based on interoperation between – multi-vendor solutions and should involve at least 5000 end users. Services to be supported should be relevant to independent living of older people and active ageing and can build on social innovation initiatives in those areas.
