11 Blueprint scenarios have been developed to illustrate the personal interactions and ICT solutions that support the Blueprint personas and their needs


In 2019, the Blueprint has focused on developing several Blueprint scenarios. The Blueprint scenarios depict an acute or chronic event or episode experienced by one or more of the Blueprint personas.

The Blueprint scenarios are illustrated through diagrams that show the relationship and interactions between a citizen e.g., Nikos, the healthcare providers, and other relevant actors such as researchers. They also show the ICT solutions (e.g., tools and services) that target the citizen’s needs and support all key actors in ensuring continuous person-centred health and care delivery to the citizen.

Eleven Blueprint scenarios have been developed:

Nikos, 50, a working adult with chronic conditions and social care needs (Greece)

  • Nikos experiences difficulties with his lung disease due to air pollution.
  • Nikos’ self-manages his health and lifestyle.

António, 33, a working age adult with complex needs (Portugal)

  • António experiences an acute haemorrhagic stroke.
  • António’s self-manages his type 2 diabetes.

Leila, 51, a working adult who is generally well (United Kingdom)

  • Leila’s son, Sammy, who has type 1 diabetes, experiences an acute event.

Procolo, 79, is retired and has complex needs, including chronic kidney disease (Italy)

  • Procolo loses his regular daily caregiver.
  • Procolo needs supervision of his diet and exercise.
  • Procolo and his wife, Rinaldina, go on a vacation abroad.

Maria, 84, has chronic conditions and social care needs (Spain)

  • Maria experiences an acute episode of hypoglycaemia.

Jacqueline, 87, has complex needs (France)

  • Jacqueline is hospitalised due to a stroke.

Maria, 84, Procolo, 79, and Jacqueline, 87

  • All three need help to avoid future hip fractures and the implications this would have for their future care.

The Blueprint scenarios have been used in workshops with various stakeholders. They have enabled co-development, stock-taking of best practices and/or ICT solutions, and the targeting of various key topics from different points of views.
