SmartCare Regions

Making integrated care work

SmartCare tests and demonstrates the viability of its integrated services through an extensive deployment programme, established in regions across Europe. The deployments help the SmartCare partners to determine the impacts of their services and to optimize service provision. The pilots also generate empirical evidence and practical experiences to support other European regions (and those in the rest of the world) in the realization of care integration across the sectoral boundaries of health care, social care and third-sector care.

Two types of regions

Regions participating in SmartCare are members of one of two different groups: Deployment regions run evaluated service pilots involving end-users, care provider and third-sector organizations and professional and informal carers. Observer regions participate to learn from the experiences of the pilot regions and go through a programme of service planning and scenario-based piloting.
