At the AER (Assembly of European Regions) spring plenaries in Arad, Romania, on 21 March 2018, the association organised a meeting on the tenth anniversary of its eHealth Network. Discussions took place on practical work on scaling-up integrated care.
Diane Whitehouse (EHTEL), a member of the SCIROCCO project facilitated a short briefing on the “deployment of integrated systems: a 12-dimension maturity model”, and to encourage wider testing and application of the Tool.
At round tables, AER contributors offered insights into regional health and care systems in Trento (Italy), the Bucharest region (Romania), and Värmland (Sweden). Possible usage could be made of SCIROCCO in the future in the Danube region through collaboration with projects such as Mach2. Attendees looked forward to the opportunity to attend SCIROCCO meetings in the context of the 2018 European week of cities and regions and SCIROCCO’s final conference in Brussels to be held in late October 2018.
Last but not least, AER was pleased to welcome NHS National Services Scotland as a new association member in 2018.
