Project name DOREEN - DeplOying the laRgE potENtial of the health sector to foster fall prevention and independent living
Objective Objective 1.2
Priority Innovation and knowledge development
Aim The project improves capacities of services of general economic interest in the field of patient-centred and integrated preventive care to deliver more efficiently and effectively health care and social services with a focus on individual needs. The approach is exemplified in the area of fall prevention. It contributes to a systemic change of the health systems and health policies. In cooperation with the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA), the project aims to contribute to move from a reactive and curative approach to disease – with a main focus on acute care - to proactive care based on health promotion and disease prevention (including self-management).
Results The extent of knowledge of services of general economic interest and producing enterprises on the adaption of improved skills and competences to provide prevention-based and patient-oriented care for frail elderly people will be increased, helping these seniors to longer live an independent living at home and securing social cohesion and inclusion. By identifying, transferring, adopting, and testing smart and innovative technology, the results of the project contribute to the innovation strategies and key enabling strategies set up in the included regions.

Benefit The project will build on excellence and diversity across the network of regions, bringing together knowledge and innovation from the health and care, life sciences and informatics. The partnership addresses weaknesses in the (central) European market environment and research and innovation system, which considerably complicate the exploitation of knowledge in many cases.
Innovation The project systematically identifies, transfers, and tests technology-driven tools for integrated, evidence-based and preventive care models. The partners adopt innovative products and services to the regional environment and technical infrastructure for the benefit of end users and caregivers.
