Prioritizing the improvement and transformation of the health system and health organization through the intensive introduction of new technologies is one of the objectives of line 10, Digital Health, Health Plan (2016 to 2020) of the Department of Health of the Generalitat of Catalonia. From TicSalut Foundation we have been working to lead innovative projects along these lines and, for this reason, during the last year, we have started the implementation of the AppSalut Portal, a project that seeks to empower the citizen to take care of his health by making use of Safe and reliable mobile applications, improving the physician-patient relationship and facilitating the sharing of mobile health data with the professional.

Under this framework, the first edition of mConnectathon TicSalut, an event to be held in Barcelona (Valkiria Hub Space, C / Pujades, 126) is scheduled to take place on June 16th. In this day of work between programmers, institutions and professionals from the health and social world, we will propose the on-site and safe testing of the correct interoperability of the applications presented with the Digital Health Platform for integration into the AppSalut Portal.

Context of the Challenge: Catalan Health Ecosystem

  • To understand the importance of connecting mobile health and social applications to the Digital Health Platform it is important to look back at February 2015; back then, the Generalitat de Catalunya approved and passed its Mobility Master Plan.
  • The objective of this Plan, a unique example of its kind in the EU, is to promote the development and deployment of mHealth in Catalonia in the forthcoming years.

AppSalut Portal

  • In this scenario, TicSalut Foundation developed and opened to the public AppSalut Portal, a digital space showcasing mobile health and social applications.
  • To be showcased, the apps need to have previously passed an accreditation process designed by Fundació TicSalut, of public domain and aligned with the EC mobility strategy.
  • AppSalut Portal offers a secure showroom where users (patients, professionals, caregivers, etc.) can find, in an organized, clear and intuitive manner, secure and certified applications (both in functional and technological terms)

Digital health Platform

  • The Digital Health Platform (DHP) is the second pillar of the model.
  • This platform is a repository of structured clinical and nonclinical data generated by any of the apps recommended to  by the professionals and dully accepted by the users.
  • To guarantee its versatility, the platform accepts data codified in the seven most used controlled vocabularies worldwide.
