Statement of the project's aimsThis is the second stage of a larger project designed to permit interregional comparisons between the different EU Member States. It is a continuation of the project.Three objectives:

- To establish a small set (pool) of relevant indicators available at the "regional" level for describing the state of health population and as a guide to decision-making and devising public health policies.

- To catalogue the data sources, with precise details of the bodies holding these data and indicators, and to define the conditions governing access to and transmission of these data.

-To test the collection of data and dissemination of the pool of regional indicators.

This work will make it easier to integrate infra-national indicators into the European Union database.

Statement of the project's aimsHealth promotion is included as an important core intervention strategy within both the current and future proposed Community Public Health Programme. It also forms a central framework for action to improve health within the policies of all Member States.Health promotion incorporates health education and is an umbrella for interventions which prevent disease and ill health ; educate people towards healthier lifestyles and/or address the wider social and environmental factors which influence people's health. There is currently a dearth of suitable indicators and related methodology and dissemination systems that can be used to monitor and evaluate health promotion at both Community and Member State levels.The proposed EUHPID Project aims to establish :- A common set of health promotion indicators to form part of the Community health monitoring system.- A suitable data collection system based on appropriate methodology.- A European dissemination strategy to set health promotion indicators within a practical policy context to assist decision makers and practitioners at both Community and Member State levels.

BudgetTotal cost:149.741,00 €Subsidy from the Commission:104.819,00 €
Statement of the project's aimsTo enhance the electronic inventory of sources of morbidity data available in Member States (MS), which was developed under the previous ONS project, by filling the gaps in information (through contact with the established group of experts, and from reports and publications), checking the accuracy of the stored information with the providers, and developing a system to enable the inventory to be readily updated on a regular basis.

Secondary objectives will be to provide on-going support for fixing bugs within the Access database and making minor changes to the database structure, to develop a system for incorporating user feedback, and to get the database widely used.

The project will also aim to link the 3 diseases-specific projects funded under the HMP 2000 Workprogramme (second round) - those on diabetes and cardiovascular diseases specifically mention inventories of data sources. An attempt will also be made to identify data sources for respiratory diseases other than asthma (which is already included in the current version of the database). The enhanced inventory to be used as a source of information to help in the monitoring of the incidence and prevalence of specific diseases for the EU's Action Programme on Health Monitoring in the Field of Public Health.

Statement of the project's aimsThe EU Health Monitoring Programme (HMP) wants to establish for data collection, exchange and reporting in the field of Public Health, in order to facilitate the monitoring of trends, differences and policy impact throughout the EU. Within this programme, Pillar A is envisaged (1) to establish a set of EU health indicators, (2) to select relevant information and data for exchange, and (3) to undertake the conceptual and methodological work which is needed to achieve this.During 1999 and 2000, a project has been funded which was focussed on the above item (1) : "Integrated approach to establishing European Community Health Indicators (ECHI)". This project has provided a proposal for framework for such a set of indicators. It is still, however, necessary to develop this framework further as well as to implement it and to promote its actual use. Actions are foreseen concerning, e.g. : (I) further inclusion of results of HMP projects and other projects, in order to realise further implementation and use of the indicator system ; (II) improving the link with EUPHIN-HIEMS ; (III) better linkage with the work of WHO/euro, OECD and Eurostat ; (IV) working out and exploiting the possibilities of more flexible usage of the system ; and (V) reinforcing communication of the output from ECHI both to Member States and the EU, especially in the context of the development of the Commission's new Action Framework on Public Health.

Statement of the project's aimsThe project aims at strengthening the European health monitoring system by reviewing best practice in regional monitoring of performance based health governance and by this to enlarge the knowledge base on regional and institutional arrangements of monitoring activities of European health system.

All organisations active in administering health services such as regional public health authorities, sickness funds, and providers are equally included. It intends to set up a learning process among European regions using the variations of regional health care regulations and activities to improve health governance and public health.

Based on international benchmarking methodology and the recommendations of the EC High Level Group on Benchmarking the project aims to identify best practice of regional health management with respect to certain tracers such as screening of cancer (early detection and immunization programs). Performance measurement is focusing on indicators of process quality and process efficiency.

Building up on other on-going HMP projects (ISARE, ECHI, etc.) the results will help MS to review the monitoring policy and make better use of the potentials of performance based governance. Health monitoring by applicant countries is particularly considered.
