Health and social care in Europe is often delivered in an uncoordinated way. The SmartCare project will formalize two care pathways and support their implementation and piloting in ten European regions. The individual pathway steps are described in local care plans which make use of modern ICT tools to allow health and social care professionals to deliver the best possible care to citizens and patients.
Coordinated by the University of Twente, the synergies of SmartCare and other European eHEIC Projects (BeyondSilos and CareWell) 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.
