Beyond the pilots:
Upscaling and transfer of person-centred digital solutions in integrated care pathways in Europe

Workshop Details


Tuesday, 03.05.2022 – 14:00 to 17.00 CET


Virtual Zoom Webinar Call Organised by AIAS Bologna


Task 3.2 has identified a variety of success factors to consider in implementing and scaling up technological solutions for integrated care. These factors are “universally valid” although they need to be contextualised: our assumption, thus, is that the more solutions are designed to cope with context variety, the easier it will be upscaling and transferring them.

It is important that both developers and organisations that aim at improving their integrated care programmes take those factors into account while developing or assessing the compatibility of the solutions within the specific context.

The aim of this dialogue workshop is to discuss these two different perspectives:

  • The perspective of developers, who need to develop solutions that are compliant with specific technical standards but whose functionality, accessibility and usability can easily adapt to different organisations and care ecosystems;
  • The perspective of managers in care that have to make choices about the adoption or upscaling of technology empowered integrated care services and that need to assess and evaluate the impact and the effort of implementing the technological solution proposed in terms of economic and human resources.

Starting from the model defined in Del 3.2 and 3.3 and the SHAPES pilot experience (in particular, referring to PT1 and PT2), the discussion is intended to bring out further aspects or criticalities to be addressed when adopting, upscaling and transferring technological solutions to foster the development of integrated care systems, including governance and policy related challenges.

HOST: AIAS Bologna onlus, WeCareMore Centre for Research and Innovation.

ACCESSIBILITY: Captions in English, Italian translation, and International sign language interpretation will be provided.

Another workshop dedicated to these themes will be held during the Exposanità Fair on May 13rd, 2022 (11.30-13.00 CET). That workshop is in presence and Italian spoken only. programma-convegni/scheda/8138/.
