Empowering citizens and building a healthier society through digital health
DigitalHealthEurope will provide comprehensive, integrated and centralised support to initiatives on digital health and care innovation in the context of the Digital Single Market Strategy. The project’s approach involves actions that will boost innovation and advance the three Digital Single Market priorities for the digital transformation of health and care (DTHC):
- citizens’ secure access to and sharing of health data across borders
- better data to advance research, disease prevention and personalised health and care
- digital tools for citizen empowerment and person-centred care.
To achieve these three priorities, the project work plan offers two forms of support.
Together, they will form a common vision of EU coordination and support for DTHC beyond 2020.
Support to large scale deployment of digital solutions for person-centred integrated care
DigitalHealthEurope’s main objective the deployment of digital solutions for person-centred integrated care. Assessment tools will be used to identify, analyse and select successful initiatives which are highly impactful and replicable. DigitalHealthEurope will also provide structured advice on EU funding instruments and financing sources. The selected initiatives will have the opportunity to pursue replication and scaling-up. This will be done with the aid of instruments such as matchmaking and a twinning support scheme. A deployment support service will include guidelines, checklists and documented successful approaches. These results will contribute to capacity building. They will help define the “building blocks” for the scaling-up of innovative practices. These new resources will be widely disseminated. The aim is to encourage even wider uptake of twinned digital innovation and the assimilation of lessons learned.
Support to DTHC innovation through collaboration in multi-stakeholder communities
DigitalHealthEurope will also facilitate the creation of multi-stakeholder communities that directly address the three priorities for the digital transformation of health and care.
Each platform will consist of two complementary levels:
- an operational expert level: key stakeholders and associated experts provide knowledge and collaborate on agreements, needs, and actionable recommendations which provide input to the policy level
- a policy level: with input from the expert level, DHE supports collaboration agreements and puts forward recommendations targeting the DHE priorities. It will create strategic frameworks for each priority and draft common agendas for involved stakeholders
DigitalHealthEurope will ensure the mutual flow of information between the two support activities.
The results will be channelled into drafting a roadmap, advice and recommended actions.
