The meeting of the consortium members was held in Glasgow, Scotland, on 21 and 22 May.


The European project ADLIFE, coordinated at European level by Biosistemak, focuses on facilitating the personalisation of care plans and improving the adaptive and early response to patients’ changing needs and preferences through digital solutions. ADLIFE targets patients over the age of 55 with severe, chronic illnesses and a potential reduction in life expectancy due to reduced functionalities and abilities. For more than three years, the ADLIFE tool has been developed and deployed at the project level to improve patients’ quality of life through an integrated care approach that is coordinated across services, personalized and promotes a culture of shared decision making.


Last May, ADLIFE held its 7th plenary meeting, hosted by the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland). The main objective of the meeting between the participating organisations was to monitor and share the progress of the project as it enters its final phase. Held in a hybrid format, over two days, more than 25 people shared the activities carried out, the problems and difficulties encountered and their possible solutions, in order to define the final steps to be taken at the project level before the end of the project in November 2024.

Biosistemak’s coordination of the ADLIFE pilot in the Basque health system with Osakidetza should be highlighted. Within the framework of the Basque pilot, the intervention is in the process of recruiting patients, once the platform for Osakidetza professionals and patients has been set up. The intervention involves professionals from different Osakidetza organisations and services, such as OSI Donostialdea, OSI Bilbao-Basurto, OSI Tolosaldea, OSI Goierri-Alto Urola, OSI Bidasoa, OSI Debabarrena, Hospital de San Eloy, Hospital de Santa Marina and the Health Council. One of the most important activities was the training of professionals in the use of the platforms and the intervention protocol.

During the meeting, one of Osakidetza’s clinical referents, who has been actively involved in the design of the Basque pilot protocol, the development of materials, the testing of the platforms and the training sessions, presented the work carried out in the Basque Country. Beñat Zubeltzu, from OSI Donostialdea, explained the process defined for training patients who have agreed to participate in the project, from the first contact in the consulting room, where the benefits of participating in the project are explained, to the established follow-up activities for patients. She also explained some of the main barriers and challenges identified during the intervention, such as professional incentives, adherence to the platforms or follow-up of participating patients.
