COCIR is a founding member of the Integrated Care Alliance, a dedicated group of multi-stakeholders’ experts working together to provide direction, advice, and guidance for integrated care schemes. The goal is to strengthen and expand integrated, sustainable health and care services across the EU Member States. Building on ICA first publication “United towards Integrated Care” in 2016, the ICA partners joined forces again to elaborate a Multi-Stakeholder Roadmap to support integrated care.
COCIR has partnered with the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) to help advance the science, knowledge and adoption of integrated care in policy and practice in the context of Europe with a specific focus on the role and use of supporting medical imaging and health ICT technologies.
The EU Health Coalition was created after the first ever EU Health Summit, which took place in November 2018, to promote a shared vision of health in Europe, based on jointly developed recommendations.
The purpose is to ensure health remains high on Europe’s political agenda and bring the necessary changes to address the unprecedented challenges and opportunities driven by an ageing population and increased prevalence of chronic diseases that healthcare systems and citizens across Europe are facing.
The EU Health Coalition is composed of patient organisations, EU research-oriented medical societies, industry organisations, regional and local health authorities and other relevant stakeholders that share a common vision for health.
The EU Health Coalition activities are steered through 4 policy groups which are the following:
1. Research and innovation
2. Health data and digital health
3. Healthcare systems
4. Policies for health
COCIR is chairing the health data and digital health policy group.
