CareWell and BeyondSilos joint "Conference on ICT enabled Integrated Care Delivery"

The conference took place on 28 February 2017, in Barcelona, Spain.


Both CareWell and BeyondSilos projects came to an end in January 2017 after three years of successful implementation of technology enabled integrated eCare services in 13 European regions. We used the conference to present to the wider public the final results of our fruitful work, held back-to-back with the GSMA World Mobile Congress.

Information and communication technologies (ICT) are promising for the long-term care of older and frequently also frail people. These innovations can improve health outcomes, quality of life and efficiency of care processes, while supporting independent living. However, they may be disruptive innovations. As all European member states are facing an increasing complexity of health and social care, good practices in eCare should be identified and evaluated. Two projects funded by DG CONNECT are related to Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA) and frailty: (i) BeyondSilos, dealing with independent living and integrated services, and (ii) CareWell, providing integrated care coordination, patient empowerment and home support.

Public presentation of the final results:

During the conference, partners presented and shared experiences on: evaluation and economic outcomes, predictive modelling methodology approach; easily transferable, high level pathways with solid evidence-base; change management in implementing technology enabled integrated care; and integration matrix for construction of new models for delivery of health and social care.  All of these have been developed in support of the pilots sites for the successful deployment of both health and social integration enabled by technology.

The results are intended to support decision makers, managers from health, social and third sector institutions, professionals, technology providers, telecommunications entities in managing deployment of Integrated eCare services.

Arnaud Senn, MD, is Policy Officer in DG Connect, Unit H.3 - "E-Health, Well-being, and Ageing". The unit leads in close interplay with other DGs on e-health and 'silver economy and society' strategy to improve health and well-being, quality of life and work in general and with specific attention for ageing, and economic opportunities. It also coordinates the cooperation with stakeholders such as through the European Innovation Partnership and formal presence in the e-Health Network related to the Cross-border Patients Directive, and board membership of the Member States-led AAL Innovation Program. With health and ageing being global challenges the unit also supports important international cooperation on the digital dimension. Arnaud Senn joined the EU Commission (DG Employment) in 2010 and was in charge of the implementation of the EC Health Inequalities Communication of October 2009, in close connection with DG SANCO. He more generally managed the EU reflection at policy level (Perm; Sec. of the Social Protection Committee – Working Group on Age) on Long-Term Care and was more specifically in charge of the drafting of the EU 2014 Report on Long-Term Care. Arnaud is a graduate of the Political Sciences Institute of Paris, has a Private Law MD (France) and followed the Seminar of the College of Europe on EU Policies (Bruges). He was involved from 1998 to 2008 in a wide range of public health actions in France (national cancer screening program) and in the UK (Kent Cancer network - best practices in cancer care organization). He worked from 2008 to 2010 as a legal expert in the Belgian Health Care Knowledge Centre – (KCE-Brussels) in the field of Health Technology Assessment and Good Clinical Practices.

He has master-minded and managed several EU projects mostly in the fields of eHealth and eInclusion with a special focus on elderly care and management of chronic diseases in home setting. Among these there are the largest multidimensional studies of ICT-enable care ever carried out in Europe: RENEWING HEALTH (RCT with 7.000 chronic patients), United4Health (controlled trial with 13.000 chronic patients), SmartCare (controlled trial with 8.500 elderly people), CareWell (controlled trial with over 10.000 complex chronic patients) and BeyondSilos (controlled trial over 10.000 elderly people). All together, these projects are creating the largest base of evidence existing in Europe in support of the deployment of ICT-enabled care. He is generally recognised as a leading expert in ICT enabled integrated care and has been often invited as a guest speaker to major conferences and seminars. He has proven ability to lead multi-language and multi-cultural teams because of his deep understanding of cultural differences in Europe, and his language skills (he is fluent in Italian, English, French and Spanish).
