On 21 November 2017, ICT4life took part in this event in Glasgow to share its experience as regard the implementation of SCIROCCO methodology, as a tool to assess the integrated care maturity of the geographical areas interested by the pilots forecasted by the project. As part of Scotland’s engagement in the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) and the Reference Sites Collaborative Network (RSCN), Scotland has lead the development of a tool to assess regions’ progress and maturity in the provision of integrated care and innovative solutions for active and healthy ageing. The online self-assessment tool is intended to stimulate discussion, to encourage stakeholders to share experiences, and to reach out those stakeholders who can help Europe to accelerate its journey towards innovative integrated care systems to meet future demands. Core to this process is the involvement of as wide a range of stakeholders as possible.
The event brought together public policy-makers, healthcare professionals, representatives of social care, housing and voluntary sectors, academia and end users to discuss the experience of European regions and organisations in developing and delivering integrated health and social care. The event was an opportunity to explore the potential of the tool to facilitate the partnerships and knowledge transfer in order to accelerate the journey of European regions towards integrated care.
