EHTEL (European Health Telematics Associations) and EHMA (European Health Management Association) partnered to raise awareness about management tools and methods which can help implementers to scale-up digital health services and make them an integral part of health and care delivery systems.
The first collaboration on the matter has started in 2012 with the Momentum project and ended-up with the identification of 18 critical success factors and the development of a collaborative assessment methodology.
Today, both organisations announced the Though Leadership webinar to their respective members. The webinar put the spotlights on a new management tool and associated methodologies: the SCIROCCO on-line self-assessment tool, aiming at assessing the readiness of an environment for Integrated Care.
During the webinar, the attendees had the opportunity to learn about the on-line tool itself, methodologies on how to apply the Tool as well as the experience of some of those regions who used the prototype of this Tool.
- The maturity model can help assessing the readiness of a health and care system for integrated care.
- It can also help identifying domains where further work is needed to support the large-scale deployment of a good practice in integrated care.
