FVG Region
Within the initiatives promoted by the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA), a Blueprint update report has been recently published.
This report is the result of the work carried out through the project “Widening large scale uptake of digital innovation for active and healthy ageing” (WE4AHA), funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, with the aim of supporting the promotion and implementation of the Blueprint and fostering synergies between Reference Sites and Action Groups.
Four priority thematic areas have been identified to promote the digitalization of health:
  • data analytics for predictive risk stratification and prevention;
  • proactive prevention through empowerment, self-management, monitoring and coaching;
  • digital solutions for connected health;
  • digital support for integrated care.
The report identified 12 personas representing different segments of the population with different conditions and needs, the so-called “Blueprint personas”, developed to allow the forecast of the real needs of health care and care of certain groups in society and to find solutions to respond to them and the right tools to implement them.
Based on the social and health conditions represented by the personas, some general technological solutions that could correspond to people's needs have been identified.
The next Blueprint update is expected approximately towards March/April 2019.
