EHTEL and the SCIROCCO project contribute to a satellite event on change management as success factor for scaling-up at AAATE2017 and will present the Maturity Model as a tool to manage systemic changes in health and care systems:

“Successful deployment requires deep changes in the ways of working of people, and organisations together with new care recipient relationships. In this seminar, we will assess 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 will also look 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. We will focus on experiences of person-centred technology deployment that are supporting care recipients in their self-management and independence, including remote monitoring.”

Satellite Event Sessions:

  • The digital transformation of the health and social care sector: opportunities and challenges
  • Change management as a factor for success
  • Including change management in your project strategy
  • Assess Readiness for Integrated Care
