The main objective of this action is to explore, identify and test new and existing eHealth solutions in order to corroborate profitable and usable models and/or best practices for accessible home healthcare.
The beneficiary(ies) will produce a report which will assess and propose profitable and usable models and/or best practices for accessible home healthcare in Europe based on the pilot project’s experience in Finland and Sweden. The report will also make
recommendations for facilitating potential replication across the EU.
The results of this pilot project could contribute to the works of the Action Group C2 (Independent living) and Action Group B3 (Integrated care) of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA).
