Webinar "Deployment Guidelines for Integrated eCare Services"

The webinar was one in a series of EIP AHA B3 Action Group Webinars and focuses on Deployment Guidelines that were developed in three projects co-funded by the European Commission:- BeyondSilos - SmartCare - CareWell

Deploying an ICT-supported integrated care service and implementing an eHealth innovation within the usual care process represents a big challenge for most European regions. Implementing innovation in care provision has proven to be a difficult undertaking. Several causes for this challenge and difficulty can be identified, including organisational and legal aspects, weak political commitment, low level of eLiteracy and technology availability, and too little involvement of key stakeholders and end users.

The webinar was one in a series of EIP AHA B3 Action Group Webinars and focuses on Deployment Guidelines that were developed in three projects co-funded by the European Commission:
- BeyondSilos http://beyondsilos.eu/home.html
- SmartCare http://pilotsmartcare.eu/home.html
- CareWell http://www.carewell-project.eu/home.html

The aim of the guidelines is to help other regional and local systems to identify the key elements to make real the opportunities offered by ICTs to support integrated care services, and to analyse under what conditions these technologies are most likely to result in efficiency, sustainability and quality-of-care improvements.
