NHS 24 is currently in the negotiation stage with the European Commission to lead a CIP-PSP Pilot A project (3.5) on behalf of Scotland, with a consortium of over 20 other partners from across Europe. The project, titled “United4Health”, will implement long term condition monitoring services at scale across the participating European Regions. The EC funding is for 5m€ over 3 years, with all partners having to provide match funding.
The project uses as a starting point the experience accumulated in the Renewing Health Pilot A, which has similar objectives to United4Health. In the case of United4Health, a limited number of interventions have been selected from the basket of those already validated, or under validation, in Renewing Health; these interventions will be deployed in several regions to guarantee aggregation of data and comparability of results. The interventions selected address the three main chronic diseases found among the EU population, namely diabetes, COPD and CVD; for each of these pathologies, all the pilot sites will implement the same intervention. In addition, at least one region will implement a fourth pathology, hypertension, using the same methodology as the other three pathologies, but this activity will not be funded from within the project.
A specialist project – dedicated project management services are required to support the Project Co-ordinator carry out the following activities:Administrative Co-ordination function,Operational Co-ordination function,Medical Co-ordination function,Quality Assurance function.
