– Strengthen the capacity of health authorities to successfully address all major aspects of health system transformation, in particular the transition to digital, integrated and person-centered care.
– Support the transfer of best practices from “First Adopters” to “Next Adopters” systems.
In particular, JADECARE will strengthen the capacity of the care authorities to:
- Support change management and reorganize existing care models as a result of the pilot practices to be implemented
- Incorporate digital technologies and tools into care services
- Reorganize care pathways including the experience and point of view of patients
- Consider and monitor the roles and skills of health care workers with digital technologies and data development
- Build the capacity of individuals and communities to participate in the care process
- Empower citizens to participate actively in health care decision-making, including the use of patient-reported data
- Analyze new payment methods
- Evaluate new methods of performance evaluation
The scope, scale and extension of these general objectives will be adapted to each of the regions that will implement good practices, “next adopters” according to their needs and their interest in developing local strategies and action plans.
The four Best Practices that will be transferred are
- Basque health strategy on ageing and chronicity: Integrated care (Basque Country, Spain
- Catalan Center for Open Innovation on ICT-supported integrated care services for chronic patients (Catalonia, Spain)
- The OptiMedis model – integrated population-based care (Germany)
- Digital roadmap to an integrated health care sector (Southern Denmark Region)
By transferring these four practices, JADECARE proposes to strengthen the capacity of health authorities to successfully address all important aspects of the transformation of the health system towards digital, integrated and person-centered care.
JADECARE will employ a three-phase implementation strategy previously designed and used in the CHRODIS Plus Joint Action.
The phases will be:
o Pre-implementation phase: application planning and preparation, where action plans for “Next Adopter” interventions will be developed
o Implementation phase: start-up and operation, based on the PDSA cycle methodology (Plan, Do, Study, Act)
o Post-implementation: impact assessment and learning
A set of methods and techniques will be used to improve the adoption, implementation and sustainability of the four Good Practices.
To contribute to the creation of innovative, efficient and sustainable integrated health care systems focused on the person.
To encourage innovation, enhance the sustainability of health systems, and improve their health care performance and outcomes.
To achieve the digital transformation of health services in which professional end users, care users or citizens, health providers, actors providing digital solutions and governments will have a key role.
The scope, scale and extent of these results will be different for each of the “Next Adopters”, depending on their maturity, their needs, their strategies and local resources. The aim is to achieve changes in different areas and aspects:
– Change management and reorganized care models
– Technologies and digital tools incorporated into care services
– Reorganized care pathways, including new financing or payment methods
– Development of the functions and skills of health personnel
– Empowering citizens to actively participate in health care decision-making
– Improved performance evaluation methods
JADECARE will improve collaboration and trust among participating agents, support knowledge transfer and learning, and generate evidence on integrated care. This will produce benefits beyond the time frame of the Joint Action. JADECARE will share its main findings and ensure the sustainability of policies at local, regional and national levels.
