Have you ever found yourself stuck for hours in your doctor’s waiting room, waiting for a consultation that turns out to be useless, or leading to further, more stressful examinations? If the answer is “yes”, you share this with many others from all around Central Europe. DH-SMART is here to help everyone overcome similar issues, once and for all, and is seeking partners to join in!
Want to know more?
As Europe grows old, healthcare services are under increasing pressure, and a conceptual revolution is needed. AER is well aware of this need, and is answering a call for proposals from INTERREG Central Europe, together with LHA Bologna and CUP2000. This project seeks to provide general practitioners with an information exchange platform, enabling them to seek help from a specialist when dealing with patients’ examinations. Such a platform could enable doctors to provide their patients with more tailored diagnosis and prescriptions based on the advise of specialists. Specialists will be contacted directly by general practitioners and be given some time to give their advise when the case is simple enough, thereby avoiding waste of time and money for both central healthcare service and end users.
Join the club!
Does all this sound interesting to you? Project initiators are currently looking for partners, and you would be most welcome to join the club! If you are
- a doctor
- a central European healthcare organisation willing to develop a small pilot action and learning activities to promote equal access to healthcare
- if you have expertise on impact evaluation or could provide innovative technical support and improve already existing platforms…
The project and your region need you!
What’s in it for Regions?
In a nutshell, the project aims at setting up smart practices in the healthcare field through the use of digital services, to promote an integrated person-centred healthcare system, to improve the resilience of healthcare systems, train professionals and make the most out of their competences. To achieve this goal, backing from local administrations is fundamental, both for making local needs known and providing other partners with the best environment to ensure follow-up to their pilots.
How do I get involved?
If this idea is of any interest to you, if you want to become partner and start a pilot, or if you believe that your region should support this project, please do contact Mr. Luca Magri at his email address [email protected] , or call the AER secretariat at the +32 (0)2 400 10 53. Do not miss the opportunity; the opening date for application is approaching fast! Applications welcome from September 21st! Please check the main website for more information.
