The Scirocco project has validated and tested the Maturity Model for Integrated Care that was developed by the B3 Action Group on Integrated Care of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIPonAHA).
The Model has been operationalised in the form of an online self-assessment tool that is ready to be used by stakeholders who are working on innovative solutions that support the delivery of integrated health and care. The tool has been tested in 40 regions in Europe, Singapore and the United States.
The Scirocco tool is a participatory tool which helps to:
- Understand the strengths and weaknesses of the regional context and inform national, regional and local policy-makers about potential areas of improvement,
- Adopt and transfer integrated care good practices and facilitate knowledge transfer by identifying their maturity requirements,
- Facilitate multi-stakeholder dialogues focused on progress towards the delivery of integrated care,
- Facilitate twinning and coaching activities between regions by helping to understand the local conditions that enable the deployment of integrated care.
The final conference of the Scirocco project will take place on 24 October 2018 in Scotland House Conference Centre, Rond point Schuman, 6, 1040 Brussels, Belgium.
