The traditional delivery models of European healthcare and welfare must be fundamentally changed to better fit to the long-term needs of persons with chronic conditions. RENEWING HEALTH is a European project aiming at implementing large-scale real-life test beds for the validation and evaluation of innovative telemedicine services by means of a patient-centred approach and a common rigorous assessment methodology. It involves 9 of the most advanced regions in the implementation of health-related ICT services, inside a local system where service solutions are already operational for the tele-monitoring and the treatment of chronic patients suffering from diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary or cardiovascular diseases.
