ProACT (Integrated Technology Systems for ProACTive Patient Centred Care) is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project led by Dr. John Dinsmore (coordinator) at the TCPHI. ProACT targets Europe’s 50 million multimorbid patients to proactively self-manage and offset the EU’s annual €700 billion cost of chronic disease management. ProACT aims to develop and evaluate an ecosystem to integrate a wide variety of new and existing technologies to improve and advance home-based integrated care for older adults with multimorbidity, including associated co-morbidities.
The ecosystem will connect four key care and support models central to understanding and implementing effective, continued and coordinated patient centric care (including self-management).
These models are
- homecare (including informal care);
- hospital care;
- community and social care;
- social support networks.
