Trillium Bridge II successfully closed: Achieved Goals and Outcomes

Trillium Bridge II successfully closed: Achieved Goals and Outcomes

Trillium Bridge II – Reinforcing the Bridges and Scaling up EU/US Cooperation on Patient Summary – was a H2020 Coordination and Support Action which has just officially ended, achieving all its goals and delivering major outcomes in this area.

It was a partnership comprising organisations from 14 countries (Europe and the United States), 7 different health systems, Standard Development Organizations (SDOs), SMEs, healthcare providers, companies, competence centres and non-profit associations, that built on the recommendations of Trillium Bridge to bridge, harmonize, evaluate existing international patient summary (IPS) initiatives and guide emerging ones.

The project has led the way towards one IPS standard by establishing a global community fostering the practice of digital health innovation with robust widely-used interoperability standards, activities targeting capacity building, and joint pilots.

ECHAlliance was leader of tasks mainly connected to exploitation and business models. All the deliverables are available online, we recommend reading D7.3 and D7.4.

You can also consult the article published in this context, on Patient Summary standards in mHealth apps. A second paper on business models is currently under review.

Trillium Bridge II has succeeded in making the IPS real by assessing and using the IPS standard which has been tested and validated in a range of settings and scenarios in close collaboration with relevant projects and organisations. Furthermore, the project has highlighted the social value of IPS standards: patient summaries and associated standards were mentioned in reports generated by the WHO Executive director to the WHO Assembly and the WEF Value in Health Care Project report to Davos in 2019, linking IPS to measuring clinical outcomes.

The next goal is to make the Global IPS Community of Practices (CoP) sustainable so that Trillium II’s work and results develop further. ECHAlliance renovates its continued commitment to build learning communities and transform health systems for the benefit of citizens and patient across the world. To this purpose, it will help grow the human capacity needed to engage and work together with people, organisations and communities to advance the IPS standards in the frame of the activities promoted by the Digital Health Society Task Force 1.
