The digitalLIFE4CE project is looking for novel solutions in the field of digital integrated healthcare systems. The fragmentation of the health care system as well as weak cooperation between relevant actors negatively affect regional authorities, care providers and citizens in many regions of central Europe. To answer these weaknesses, the project brings together policy makers, experts from research and development and actors relevant for implementation.
They will work on a new framework to provide policy stakeholders with: a global picture on available solutions and their implications; technology solution providers with options for joint cooperation; and beneficiaries with new applications and technologies. Additionally, the project will research and promote best practice cases in so called ‘Healthcare Excellence Spots’ and investigate ways to increase investment in digital health start-ups and to boost innovation in healthcare systems with a need for an integrated care coordination.
Partners will develop IT based Toolbox system for mapping and visualization of integrated digital healthcare solutions in order not only identify linkages and interdependencies among actors but also to match them and stimulate transfer cases. Strategy and action plan on joint digital healthcare innovation potentials will be reflected in emerging collaborative ecosystem which will strive to create cooperation scenarios among technology solution providers and relevant actors.
This Workpackage is focused on defining new methods to boost the RTD & innovation performance of Digital Healthcare System Actors. Its two Outputs will increase the level of joint available knowledge to make linkages among actors of the integrated digital health innovation system sustainable and based on long term plans: a network based modular learning system and interdisciplinary and cross sectoral based methodologies to establish innovation linkages based on a strategic task force will guarantee to achieve these goals.
Workpackage 3 will produce two main outputs, the first one dedicated to design, development, implementation & evaluation of CE Digital Healthcare Excellence Spots through organisation of dedicated pilots in the target regions and the second to produce a joint transnational roadmap centered in the Excellence Spots for aligning the regional joint research and innovation agenda in digital health with a quadruple helix approach, and enlarging it to additional CE regions & their stakeholders including funding bodies, national RTD centres, ETPs, EIT/KIC, DG-SANCO and innovation agencies among others.
The WP provides the base for the long term benefits of demonstrated effective, efficient & distributed CE transnational cooperation within the integrated CE digital healthcare innovation system. Two Outputs will guarantee long term sustainability and effectiveness of the established innovation linkages:
