ValueCare: Cork/Kerry Pilot Site

 
In Ireland, the ValueCare project focuses on co-designing a digital solution to help older people (≥75) experiencing mild to moderate frailty to live independently in their homes. The technology will foster regular communication between older people in the relevant organisations (primary, secondary and social care) with technology enabled data sharing & common data sets can improve flow and information exchange. Older people will access the VALUECARE integrated care pathway via referral from primary care, the emergency department, the acute medical unit or the public health nurse. The care coordinator will develop the following 4 components; case finding; needs assessment; care planning and care co-ordination.
