Alexia Zurkuhlen, an ECHAlliance International project manager anHealthRegion CologneBonn presented at the conference in the session “The integrated care services addressed to older people with chronic condition”.

Alexia presented a number of integrated care approaches, most of them based on digital health, taking place in EU regions having filed a “commitment” to the EIP on AHA B3 action group “integrated care”.

After clustering those commitments according to regions, approaches and main focis, Alexia went into more detail for a selection of those commitments, discussing the challenges they were facing. Finally Alexia presented the latest endeavour of a rural region around Cologne that submitted a proposal for an integrated care approach for chronically ill 65+ adults who suffer from the lack of health and care professionals in the regions and the almost inexistent communication between both sectors in general.
