CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD participated in the 18th International Conference on Integrated Care “Value for People and Populations: Investing in Integrated Care”, organized by the International Foundation of Integrated Care (IFIC), in Utrecht (Netherlands) on 23 – 25 May 2018.
In the general context of the conference’s activities, CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD together with the H2020 projects ICT4Life, Polycare, CONNECARE and ProACT held a panel on the topic “Digital health and ICT tools for the future: what’s the added value for integrated care?”.
The focus was put on four key dimensions:
- Enhancing the value of care to people: how innovations meet end-users’ needs in integrated care contexts;
- Professionals’, carers’, and patients’ experience while using the devices;
- Methodologies and processes to improve integrated care system efficiency and health outcomes;
- Cost-efficiency of integrated care ICT based solutions and their exploitation.
The conference brought together researchers, clinicians and managers from around the world who are engaged in the design and delivery of integrated health and social care.
