DigitalHealthEurope will provide comprehensive, integrated and centralised support  to the Digital Health and Care Innovation initiative 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 digitalsolutions for person-centred integrated care

DigitalHealthEurope has at its  forefront 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. Structured advice on EU funding instruments and financing sources will also be given. 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 be developed: it 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. The new resources will be widely disseminated. The aim is to encourage even wider uptake of twinned innovation and the assimilation of lessons learned.

Support to DTHC innovation through collaboration platforms

DigitalHealthEurope will also facilitate the creation of collaboration platforms that directly address the three priorities.

Each platform will consist of two complementary levels:

  • a policy level to support collaboration agreements, the drafting of recommendations, and a common agenda
  • an expert level to foster the elaboration of agreements, needs and actionable recommendations, that guides and informs decisions pursued at the  policy level.

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.
