ValueHealth - Establishing the value and business model for sustainable eHealth services in Europe

VALUeHEALTH is establishing how eHealth interoperability can create, deliver, and capture value for all stakeholders. The consortium is developing an evidence-based business plan for sustainable interoperability. The plan will include sustainable revenue streams for developing and operating self-funding priority pan-European eHealth Services beyond 2020. The aim is to justify a sustainable market in scaling up cross-border interoperability. VALUeHealth gets feedback on the models, concepts, business models and business plans, and roadmaps, it is developing by involving experts in the eHealth interoperability field at meetings. The aim of the project is to set in place a dynamic and sustainable framework where the contribution of standards and standardisation for ICT can be maximised for active and healthy ageing. In a context of an ageing population, the project will intent to increase older people’s engagement and inclusion in standardisation process as well as offer new ways of thinking to improve the impact and influence of standards.

What problem is ValueHealth solving?

In recent years, a number of large-scale pilots have been undertaken in Europe that have focused on digital health. These included initiatives planned and supported by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) http://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/connecting-europe-facility. The CEF will end in 2020. It is therefore crucial, in the meantime, to explore what needs to be done after that date to sustain the work already undertaken or to orient new work in appropriate directions.

VALUeHealth is a coordination and support action. A requested extension means that the action will run until June 2017.

What is EHTEL's role in ValueHealth?

EHTEL is working with empirica (Germany) on work package 3 of the project. This work package focuses on the success strategies and incentivisation strategies needed to continue eHealth (and integrated care) work. Two deliverables will be the outcome. In D3.1, Chapter 5, explores these potential adoption challenges and success strategies: http://www.valuehealth.eu/ValueHealth/assets/File/VALUeHEALTH D3_1 Adoption challenges and success.pdf Out of this work, and further meetings and interviews, an adoption and incentives roadmap will be developed in D3.2.

EHTEL hospital experts have been invited to a 9th February 2017 workshop that will explore what incentivises hospital managers and clinicians to develop good quality data.
