This year, AgeingFit2021 gathered together 700 delegates from 50 countries. On a panel about innovative organisational models for home-based care and services in Europe, Dr Astrid van der Velde of Isala Heart Centre in the Netherlands, updated an audience of more than 80 participants about the hospitalisation at home collaboration of NWE-Chance.
The panel’s focus was on scalability into other regions and countries, and sustainability of the initiatives. Key was how to spread services beyond the borders of one’s own location and country through good organisation and investment. Brought together in one spot were insights from three innovative types of organisations: platforms, care homes, and the hospital at home.
NWE-Chance is especially bringing together nurses and cardiologists to support heart patients in their own homes, by using services supported by mobile phones and the cloud.
The two other panellists were Fredrik Gulowsen from Nyby (Norway) and Henry Quinn of NHS Dementia (Harmonia) Village (United Kingdom).
