INCA (Inclusive & Integrated Healthcare)

INCA (Inclusive Introduction of Integrated Care): CIP-ICT-PSP-7 program.

The main activities, pursuits and outcomes of the INCA project throughout its lifecycle, have been the following:

1. To improve outcomes for patients; creating access to better integrated socio-sanitary care e-Services (integration of health care, social care, long-term and self-care in any kind of health / living conditions) outside of hospitals; reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and enabling effective working of professionals across provider boundaries.

2. Deployed across “cloud computing” approaches, in order to reach its outcomes in a highly ambitious way, with clear quantitative indicators, assuring the best value for money using INCA against conventional alternative of Public or Private silos of eHealth service deployments.

3. Improving the health services through better coordination across different levels of socio-sanitary care and from different providers within each level.

4. Contributing towards first-time introduction of integrated care programs and coaching of “first time deployment” by “early adopter” regions in Member States or associated countries, including remote “proactive” monitoring of patients.
