3 RENEWING HEALTH in a nutshell RENEWING HEALTH is the second Pilot Type A ehealth project funded under the new European Union ICT-PSP (Information and Communications Technologies Policy Support Programme) Project start date: 1 st of February 2010 Project duration: 32 months Total budget: Euros EU contribution: Euros 21 pilot sites, grouped in 9 clusters and distributed over 9 EU regions 3

6 Clinical objectives 6 Explicit objectives improving the quality of life of chronic patients who, for just the three chronic diseases addressed in the Project, account for well over 15% of the EU adult population by removing anxiety about health conditions reducing the need for the patient to use emergency services and/or hospital stays avoiding and/or slowing down the worsening of their disease and the insurgence of complications providing clinical evidence that, at least for certain chronic diseases, a telemedicine-based delivery network can supply healthcare services at least of the same clinical quality and reliability as those supplied through a traditional a healthcare e delivery network

7 Explicit objectives Patient/user perspective objectives providing coherent clinical services through ICT that take into proper consideration patients and professional users needs, capabilities, risks and benefits implementing solutions that support the empowerment of the patients and increase patients satisfaction demonstrating that the implementation of telemedicine services improves the professional satisfaction of the involved healthcare professionals. measuring patients, relatives, informal caregivers and healthcare professionals satisfaction (through questionnaires) 7

8 Economic objectives Explicit objectives containing the cost of care for chronic patients to maintain the health system sustainable in spite of the demographic changes reducing the reliance of chronic patients on the most expensive care facilities and replacing them with more affordable homecare 8

9 Organisational objectives 9 Explicit objectives cutting across the traditional fences among different levels of care creating an organisational model for telemedicine services that ensures a safe, clear and efficient pathway for patients in their journey through the healthcare system promoting active participation of the patients in the organisational model measuring the organisational impact of telemedicine in both a qualitative and quantitative manner

10 Implicit objectives Providing Healthcare budgetary Authorities with a rock-solid argument to adopt PHS and rethink the way they deliver care thanks to these Reaching in each of the pilot sites the critical mass of patients which will make the move towards the deployment depoy e of PHS unstoppable oppabe 10

25 Why clusters The concept of clusters has been introduced for: grouping existing telemedicine services, although using heterogeneous technological platforms, according to their aim, timing and duration of the intervention increasing the statistical power of the trials by aggregating data from the various pilots of a same cluster promoting close collaboration and sharing of experience among teams which have never worked together before RENEWING HEALTH 25

27 Minimum requirements for a cluster All pilots belonging g to a same cluster have to share a common set of primary indicators Each cluster of pilots have to operate as a multi-centre clinical trial (aggregation g of data) For each cluster a Scientific Trial Protocol has been elaborated that includes, a.o., a detailed description of objectives, design, methodology, outcomes, statistical considerations 27

28 Current status 28 We have completed the Grant Agreement negotiation with the Commission We have brought order to the chaos We have organised 21 heterogeneous pilots into 9 rather homogeneous clusters We have defined a common dataset to collect demographic, health related quality of life and patients perception We agreed to use a common outcome for all the clusters (SF-36 v2 questionnaire) i

29 Current status We have finalised the Trial Protocols for 7 of the 9 clusters We have completed the User Requirements and the Technical Recommendations for Project Implementation We are almost in line with the Project Plan which was particularly ambitious because of the number of partners and the complexity of the matter 29

30 Current status We have attracted attention from other regions and organisations which have expressed an interest in joining the Project... and even more important than all the other achievements: we have learnt to work together as a team in spite of the fact that we barely knew each other at the beginning of the Project 30
