The Association for the Advancement of Assistive Technology (AAATE) and the Horizon 2020 project consortiums ProACT and IN LIFE, with support of the European Commission and the collaboration of EHTEL (European Health Telematics Association), SCIROCCO project, EASPD (the European Association of Service Providers to Persons with Disabilities) and the ECHAlliance (European Connected Health Alliance) organised the Change management seminar on 12 September 2017 in Sheffield.
The seminar assessed some of the success factors related to organisational change and how these factors have been managed during the up-scaling and transfer of successful experiences. We also looked at tools that can help to understand how to support implementation, scalability and transferability of digital health and care solutions in the UK and in Europe.
SCIROCCO contributed to the seminar by featuring the latest development in the self-assessment tool for integrated care and discussed with the participants how SCIROCCO tool can help us to better understand the contextual requirements necessary for the adoption and transferability of the integrated care solutions. In particular, the experience of the Basque Country and Norrbotten regions in applying SCIROCCO tool were featured at the event (see the presentations under Scirocco Resources).
The seminar was organised as a satellite event to the 2017 AAATE Conference. The conference addressed the global challenge of meeting the needs of the increasing number of people who could benefit from Assistive Technology. More information: www.aaate2017.eu
