The SmartCare Committed Regions Board (CRB) is a group of regions led by the AER, which are not yet deploying integrated care systems but are closely following the developments in pilot regions in order to get ongoing feedback on what works and what doesn’t. In May, CRB members identified the main challenges to the deployment of integrated care systems during a workshop with pilots and experts. They then had the opportunity to look closer at the impacts and ways to overcome some of these challenges during a series of virtual meetings where pilots shared their experience.
In Donegal, CRB regions and other AER members, used elements of the Leadership methodology of the Council of Europe, to carry out a stakeholders analysis and define ways to overcome the excessive clustering of groups of stakeholders. Exchanges were very fruitful and this was an opportunity to share about solutions, developed across Europe and their potential transferability.
