TeNDER successfully completes pre-piloting phase. An Integrated Health Care model for patients with neurodegenerative and cardiovascular conditions

affecTive basEd iNtegrateD carE for betteR Quality of Life (TeNDER) is a multi-sectoral project funded by Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (end 2019 to end 2022), to develop an integrated care model to manage multi-morbidity in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (and other forms of dementia), Parkinson’s disease, and cardiovascular disease. By combining user-friendly technologies and substantial research experience, TeNDER project aims to help improve the quality of life of patients and those who surround them. Moreover, it will test ways to ease communication between different health and care providers who treat patients with multi-morbidities.

After careful preparations, TeNDER is ready for 2021 and the first wave of pilots. During the pre-piloting phase, consortium partners laid out the legal and ethical framework of the project, defined the technical architecture of the services TeNDER will provide, consolidated the system for gathering data and analysing results ...

Integrating patient complexity into health policy: a conceptual framework

Clinicians across all health professions increasingly strive to add value to the care they deliver through the application of the central tenets of people-centred care (PCC), namely the ‘right care’, in the ‘right place’, at the ‘right time’ and ‘tailored to the needs of communities’.

This ideal is being hampered by a lack of a structured, evidence-based means to formulate policy and value the commissioning of services in an environment of increasing appreciation for the complex health needs of communities. This creates significant challenges for policy makers, commissioners and providers of health services. Communities face a complex intersection of challenges when engaging with healthcare. Increasingly, complexity is gaining prominence as a significant factor in the delivery of PCC.

Based on the World Health Organization (WHO) components of health policy, this paper proposes a policy framework that enables policy makers, commissioners and providers of health care to integrate a model of ...

The clinical effectiveness of the COPDnet integrated care model

COPD is a disease with a high prevalence in the world. Despite the great personal and family involvement, it has been seen that integrated care between hospitals and primary care translates into better clinical results for patients. Integrated care models have the potential to improve outcomes for patients with COPD. The research team design the COPDnet integrated care model and implemented it in two hospitals and affiliated primary care regions in the Netherlands. The COPDnet model consists of a comprehensive diagnostic trajectory ran in secondary care followed by a non-pharmacological intervention program of both monodisciplinary and multidisciplinary components.

Why integrated care already owns the future

Integrated care has certainly arrived in the primary care clinic. Evidence and momentum began building 20 years ago with the demonstrated effectiveness of collaborative care programs for depression and anxiety disorders in primary care. Since then, various forms of integrated care have been repeatedly proven effective across a range of care settings, patient populations, languages and cultures.

Integrated care models are well adapted to thrive during the Fourth Industrial Revolution in health care. Because integrated care has embraced flexibility and disruption, integrated care models will succeed—or even dominate—in a future that will demand flexibility.

Conducting a Health Needs Assessment to Identify Potentials for Population-based Integrated Care Models in Socially Deprived Urban Regions – The Example of the Integrated Care Project “Billstedt-Horn” in Hamburg, Germany

Against the background of regional differences in morbidity and social determinants of health small-scale health services research is becoming increasingly relevant, particularly for planners of population-based integrated care models. Despite of longstanding research of regional variation especially by John Wennberg neither are there scientifically or practically accepted standards on how to identify regions which are in a special need for integrating health services nor is there a precisely defined set of methods which could be used to identify and prioritize problems in health services delivery.
