Telemonitoring and continuity of care for older subjects: comparing experience an identifying common solutions

The COVID19 pandemic highlighted some structural – organizational and cultural – limitations of our dominant model of (health)care. One of these is the need to identify and adopt newer instruments for the continuity of care for the large number of patients with chronic disease who live in low-density population areas  (200 million or 27% of EU population) and experience inequality to access (health)care because of the distance between community and healthcare structures. Notably, the onset of multimorbidity occurs 10–15 years earlier in people living in the most deprived areas compared with the most a?uent.

The Workshop aims at facilitating knowledge acquisition (including existing Projects and adopted solutions) and at fostering collaboration and standardization of best practice, including health literacy and patients and caregivers empowerment, in order to impact on the adoption of innovative digital solutions able to boost people's health and quality of life and enable more ...

Learning from Gothenburg model of person centred healthcare

Providing person centred care is a growing imperative across healthcare. The core component of person centred care is the co-creation of care through partnership between patients, their families and carers, and health professionals. While much of the recent literature has focused on why we need to change to a more person centred approach with greater involvement of patients and the public in health and healthcare, little information is available on how to do it and whether it makes any difference. Over the past 10 years a model of person centred care has been studied and implemented in Sweden and has shown promising results. By providing practical insights from a successful initiative that has spread both nationally and internationally, we hope to offer lessons for readers elsewhere.

Shared Governance: Working Together to Enable People-Centred Integrated Care

Now more than ever, healthcare systems and communities must work together to improve outcomes for patients, caregivers and populations. Shared governance is an essential piece of the journey towards an integrated, people-centred health system; one that must be co-designed in partnership to breakdown barriers in care.

Join this session to learn from the first-hand experiences from a patient partner, a senior health care leader, a Canadian policy maker and an international expert, as they discuss:

• Examples of how shared governance models have been co-designed to enable collaborative, people-centred health systems across the continuum of care; and
• Key practices and implementation resources based on the latest evidence.

Driving and accelerating a 'one system' response: why COVID-19 has shone a spotlight on Integrated Care

High performing health and social care systems provide exceptional care, quality and experiences for patients, caregivers and providers. Pivotal to this, is how we work across health and social care as one team. The need for integrated care is a global priority and is poised to address fragmentation and accelerate the improvements that are needed. During a global pandemic, the need to work as an integrated system is even more pressing and gives us an opportunity to pause, reflect and respond.

In situations where systems are subjected to unprecedented pressure, organizations and sectors may respond from the lens of what can their individual organization or sector do, rather than responding as a cohesive and interconnected system.

Organizations that have embraced collaborative models of response and care and were already working to advance integration pre-pandemic appear to be more effective in responding as one connected team and community.

Facilitators and barriers of managing patients with multiple chronic conditions in the community: a qualitative study
