Delivering integrated care to frail patients through ICT

CareWell pursued the delivery of integrated healthcare to frail elderly patients through comprehensive multidisciplinary programmes. ICTs facilitate the coordination and communication of healthcare professionals and support patient centred delivery of care at home. The project supported the integration of care in six European Regions.

Coordinated by the University of Twente, the synergies of CareWell and other European eHEIC Projects (SmartCare and BeyondSilos) was studied from the perspectives of ‘human factors’ in e-health enabled integrated care, resulting in the development of the 7Habits, a framework for sustainable implementation of  avant-la-lettre integrated care in regions across Europe and beyond.
