Abstract

Background

The transformation of healthcare systems is highly complex and, as such, the health and social care authorities are seeking the support to improve their capacity for the adoption of integrated care. There is a real opportunity to maximise the use of existing assets and evidence on integrated care and ensure it is readily available to meet the maturity needs and context of a particular health and care system. However, it is also important to recognise that the healthcare systems will have very different starting points, or levels of maturity. As such, they will all require different types of assets and support to strengthen their capacity for successful implementation of integrated care. The SCIROCCO Exchange project aims to address this need by facilitating the access of health and social care authorities to tailored, evidence-based assets and personalised capacity-building support for the adoption and scaling-up of integrated care.

The project builds upon the preliminary achievements of the B3 Action Group on Integrated Care of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIPonAHA) that first developed the concept of the B3 Maturity Model. Through the activities of the EU Health Programme funded project SCIROCCO, the Model has been further refined and is supported by a validated online self-assessment tool for integrated care. The ambition of the SCIROCCO Exchange project is to maximise the value and impact of the Model and the Tool by developing a Knowledge Management Hub to act as an integrator go existing integrated care evidence in order to facilitate easier access to personalised support and knowledge transfer that matches the needs of European regions.

Aims and objectives

This workshop is an opportunity to explore the potential of SCIROCCO Exchange Knowledge Management Hub to improve the capacity of health and social care authorities to access and utilise the existing assets on integrated care, tailored to their local context and needs. It will feature in details the mapping of integrated care assets, including their classification and maturity readiness levels. The session will also highlight experience from three European regions, the Flanders Region in Belgium, Lithuania and Slovenia, in utilising the Hub. Each region tested the SCIROCCO Exchange Hub to better understand their readiness for integrated care, and to search and access existing support to successfully adopt integrated care. The outcomes of these activities will then inform future actions for improvement planning. t
