This section contains summaries and downloads of the ValueCare deliverables, grouped by the relevant project work package (WP).
WP2 - Development of new integrated care built on value-based methodology to be implemented at EU level
This deliverable provides an overview of all data collected during the ValueCare intervention and follow-up. It identifies the general clerical and clinical data needed, and pilot-specific data needed to respond to the ValueCare concept, including the ICT support requirements.
The deliverable describes the strategies to engage end-users in the co-design activities and in the piloting of the ValueCare project’s implementation. The aim is to define the strategies needed to engage the main target (stakeholders, older people, families, professionals and managers) in the co-design activities and the needed profiles. A methodology to develop the engagement strategies that pilot sites will adapt to their national contexts and target groups will be provided. In this deliverable the focus is the description of powerful strategies for engagement that will be the first actions to start the co-design activities to co-create the ValueCare framework of integrated care to test in the pilots.
This Deliverable (D2.4) is part of Work Package 2 and concerns the feedback from the first round of engagement actions undertaken in each ValueCare Pilot Site in relation to the target groups foreseen by the ValueCare Project namely: patients/service users and informal caregivers, care practitioners, and public and private decision-makers responsible for the adoption of the project’s results and their exploitability. These last target of decision-makers has not been engaged as foreseen due to the limitations encountered in the Pilot Countries along with the pandemic scenario.
This deliverable presents the guidelines to develop the co-design activities (national seminars, focus groups and world cafes) according to the target groups to be involved in pilot sites (end users – older people and families, health and social care practitioners and managers. The co-design is addressed to jointly develop a new outcome-based social and health integrated care model supported by a digital solution that promotes older citizens health and social goals, supports informal caregivers, and improves professionals’ working conditions. End-users’ interests are the driving force behind the development process, and the end-users will be involved from the initiation of the research: to define the problems to be tackled, to formulate design criteria and recommendations, and to help find solutions. In this process, the co-design is analysed through the DART model and linked with the engagement strategies developed in the D.2.3. In summary, the guidelines provided in this document are presented as a tool to support pilot sites, but each pilot site should select the actions that best respond to their context and target group.
WP3 - Digital IT for value-based integrated care
The objective of this deliverable (D3.7) is to present the ValueCare virtual coach functionality, the underlying technologies that enable its implementation, the different intervention instances that were defined for each pilot and the steps involved from the definition of the interventions up to the final corresponding software implementation.
WP4 - ValueCare pilots’ implementation
This deliverable provides the general framework of the ValueCare concept for pilot site implementation. It includes practical guidance to implement the ValueCare model in each pilot site. Furthermore, preparatory activities were defined that need to be conducted prior to pilot implementation.
The purpose of this deliverable 4.2 is to provide the ValueCare implementation plan in each pilot site. This deliverable includes sample recruitment and recruitment strategies, preparatory activities and implementation plan.
WP5 - Formative and summative evaluation of the ValueCare pilot
This deliverable describes the evaluation of the ValueCare approach. The aim is to evaluate the ValueCare approach in a pre-post controlled design in terms of effects for the target groups (older people, their families, and health and social care providers). The second objective is to evaluate different dimensions of the ‘process’. In this deliverable, a description of the evaluation framework is provided.
WP6 - Communication, dissemination and policy recommendations
This deliverable is an accompanying document for the set-up of the ValueCare project website and the project’s style guide, consisting of its branding elements and guidelines for easing internal communication between partners and maximising the impact of external communication and dissemination activities.
