Improving INtegrated people-centred healthCAre SOlutions
The INCASO - Improving INtegrated people-centred healthCAre Solutions proposal of Mattone Internazionale Salute Programme – ProMIS, focused on integrated care, was selected last December 2018 as one of the four Thematic Networks 2019 of the European Commission.
The INCASO presentation took place on 12 November 2018 in Brussels during the EU Health Policy Platform Meeting. In fact, every year, the EU Health Policy Platform hosts 3 thematic networks, led by health stakeholders. The purpose of a Thematic Network is to produce a Joint Statement within a year, summarising the common position of a group of stakeholder organisations. During the event the six-leader stakeholder organisations presented their proposals for a 2019 Thematic Network. Among them also “INCASO” led by ProMIS, whose aim is to improve the integrated people-centered healthcare solutions.
Last 6 February the kick off meeting took place in Brussels, and there ProMIS presented the proposal of Joint Statement (see attachments below).
The objective of INCASO will be to set up a thematic network aimed at: putting the comprehensive needs of people and communities at the center of health systems - empowering people to have a more active role in their own health; defining a common vocabulary, specific priorities and interests; creating synergies with existing European networks/partnerships; mapping European good practices related to integrated services.
The specific objectives of the Joint Statement will be the followings.
First of all, promoting the exchange of regional good practices that can impact at national/European level, focusing on the implementation of change management for the scale-up of innovative, integrated services, in order to develop and enhance the quality of the integrated person-centred assistance in a context as close to patients’ home environment as possible. This will be carried out through a map of European projects and existing good practices related to the topic, disseminate results through ProMIS communication channels (web channels, newsletter, thematic events etc.), foster collaborative approaches to the scale up of innovative good practices.
Secondly, INCASO aims at locating a single keyword to process shared tools to work within organisational innovation. The proposed actions will be: collection and analysis of regional priorities, expected results and investments, but also sharing of the materials collected with the actors involved and sharing it broadly with all Regions
Thirdly, INCASO aspires to collaborating with existing European networks/partnerships (for instance, EIP-AHA, RSCN) for the sharing of strategies, policies and interventions on the implementation of integrated care by the Italian regions and other Member States. The activities identified will be: position paper elaboration; proposals for recommendations to be submitted at European level that are shared between national and regional levels; survey processing and data analysis.

ProMIS launched an evaluation survey of performed activities and for collecting inputs and feedbacks regarding the latest draft of the Joint Statement. It is possible to fill it in by clicking HERE. It will be very important for ProMIS receiving your important contribution. It will take less than 5 minutes for answering to the questions listed. It's possible to complete the questionnaire by August the 30th.
Finally, last 17 October the INCASO Joint Statement was presented during the 2019 EU Health Policy Platform annual meeting. The afternoon session, indeeed, was fully dedicated to stakeholders’ activities, such as discussions about current and future EU health priorities and presentations of the 2019 and 2020 Joint Statements. Several organisations from across Europe presented their annual position papers they have been working on in their 2019 Thematic Networks.
Therefore, we kindly invite you to benefit from the opportunity given by ProMIS and promote through the INCASO network ongoing projects and further initiatives on integrated care and provide your remarks on the Joint Statement draft realised by ProMIS, also sending your inputs to firstname.lastname@example.org
