A Maturity Model for Adoption of Integrated Care within Regional Healthcare Systems (B3 Action Group)

B3 members have worked together to develop practical tools that support service local service delivery. One of them concentrated on Maturity models focusing on three key areas: organisational models, change management and the development and adoption of eHealth programmes and teleservices to support integrated care and service innovation, were developed. These models were subsequently converged into one comprehensive model - the B3 Maturity Model. This model covers a broad range of areas relevant for implementing integrated care and functions as a self-assessment tool that provides objective measurement and guides regions how to improve their capacity to deploy services.
