Agenda of the EHTEL Innovation Initiative Meeting within the EHTEL Community Day @ EHTEL 2017 Symposium
The first part focused on the service readiness levels model developed by the EHTEL Innovation Initiative: **Some latest examples of concrete digital innovations that are using the EHTEL Innovation Initiative model and its concepts to explore their initiatives. ** End-users’ comments on how they can be more effectively involved in getting services ready for scale-up and innovation. ** Initial reflections on how similarities and differences between the service readiness levels and technological readiness levels can be articulated. Second Part: More tools are needed to help people understand how to move towards sustainable health and care systems, and support implementation, scalability, and transfer of integrated care solutions in Europe. This part of the day looked at: ** Another well-developed tool – the SCIROCCO maturity model tool – that supports scale-up in service innovation and is being used in several regions in the Union. Working Group members will hear how SCIROCCO partners have applied the tool – developing appropriate radar diagrams, and then reflect on how the tool could be useful to their own innovation initiatives. **The Blueprint on Digital transformation of Health and Care and how can the Innovation Initiative contribute to its action plan.

The EHTEL/ELO Network is recognised as a Stakeholder Group within EHTEL. Its core membership is constituted by non-for-profit organisations focusing on National/Regional eHealth coordination, supervision and deployment, typically endorsed by a mandate of healthcare or governmental authorities. These organisations are referenced as "competence centres" in the ELO context. **The EHTEL/ELO Vision is to improve health and social care through meaningful eHealth services enabled by secure and interoperable eHealth infrastructures. ** The EHTEL/ELO Mission is to be a collaboration platform that enables its members to observe, analyse and discuss what is happening at eHealth deployment and operation level, including e.g. to ++Share information on eHealth proceedings on Regional, National and European level, ++Focus on jointly agreed topics, with an emphasis on Europe-wide interoperability. ++ Identify and elaborate common challenges and to voice Common Positions vis-à-vis the European Commission and other audiences at the European level.
