Unwired Health

UNWIREDHealthUNWIRED Health will redesign health care delivery, introducing a mobile care path for consumers.

The project will deploy Pre-commercial Procurement (PCP) to create step-change innovations in mobile patient ICTs in order to empower patients enabling patient-centric care, using mobile devices and converging interoperable platforms. No current or future market solution exists as it would require cooperation of health administrations and providers across multiple nations.

The consortium consists of three procurers introducing the innovation into their territories; Catalonia, Scotland and Southern Denmark and three vendor independent non-profit associations gathering a significant broad range of organizations and enterprises.

Innovation

The project aims:

  • to establish an agreed PCP process across Europe and
  • to use the developed PCP process to run a call for tenders for the development of mobile eHealth services.

The service that will be developed during the PCP proces is an app to improve the treatment, communication, quality of life and adherence to treatment in relation to patients with heart failures enabling education, motivation, remote monitoring and other functionalities, integrating and coordinating care provided by a hospital and the primary care physician.

The app will be innovative, fully integrated in the regional public health systems and can be prescribed by GPs. The service will be implemented in open platform infrastructures that will make the app platform-agnostic, suitable to any smartphone and any participating operator. This will demand the collaboration of operators and software integrators to bid for the tender.
