BRIDGE Health (BRidging Information and Data Generation for Evidence-based Health Policy and Research) aims to create European health information (EU-HI) and data generation networks covering major EU health policy areas. The network uses comprehensive experience and assures a knowledge transfer from past health and research frameworks.

The aim is to work towards a comprehensive, integrated and sustainable EU-HI supporting evidence-based health policy and research for the EU and Member States by providing blueprints and/or concepts of building blocks for a future EU-HI research infrastructure consortium (ERIC-HI).

The project bridges key EU projects in domains of population and health system monitoring and indicator development, health examination surveys, environment and health, population injury and disease registries, clinical and administrative health data collection systems and methods of health system monitoring and evaluation.

The project aims to:
1) enhance the transferability of health information and data for policy and improve the utility and use of data and indicators for stakeholders in policy making, public health surveillance and health care;
2) reduce health information inequality within the EU and within MS;
3) develop a blueprint for a sustainable and integrated EU Health information system by developing common methods for a) standardising the collection and exchange of health information within and between domains, between MS, including e-health platforms; b) ensuring data quality, including procedures for internal and external validation of health indicators; c) undertaking priority setting exercises for health information, d) addressing ethical and legal issues associated with the collection and use of health data within MS and the EU.

Coordination, dialogue and interaction with DG-SANCO, the Expert Group on Health Information, Eurostat, DG Research and other DGs ensure the sustainability of the work and bridges to a future ERIC-HI.

Topic: 3.7 Foster a health information and knowledge system to contribute to evidence-based decision-making, including the use of existing instruments, further development, where appropriate, of standardised health information and tools for monitoring health, collection and analysis of health data, the wide dissemination of the results of the Programme, and support to the Scientific Committees set up in accordance with Decision 2008/721/EC.

Empowering pharmacists to improve health care for oral chemotherapy patients: Establishment of a European best-practice model [EPIC]

Oncology is undoubtedly currently the fastest developing area of healthcare. More or less every month new drugs come to the market; many of them are formulations for oral administration. This means that the complex treatment of often co-morbid oncology patients is moving from a supervised hospital setting to the patient’s home and dispensing of potent oral anticancer drugs to general community pharmacies. Pharmacists in such pharmacies are not specialized in care for oncology patients, since the curriculum of pharmacy studies includes few oncology-related topics.
Our purpose is to empower pharmacists to improve therapy-related outcomes and patient safety by lending support for the pharmaceutical counselling related to the dispensing of oral anticancer drugs. By doing so in selected member countries, we will create a best-practice model for the EU.
To this end, we will first survey the current situation and problems at dispensing of oral anticancer drugs in the EU. Based on the results we will design optimal post-graduate education for pharmacists about oncology topics and develop IT-tools that assist the pharmaceutical counselling process. This will allow the pharmacist quick access to essential information on oral oncology drugs including important advice for patients as well as useful service options like the preparation of treatment plans for the patient. By evaluating user satisfaction with the IT-tools and educational programme and subsequent implementation of improvements, we establish a ‘learning system’. This system will be put to effect in the participating partner countries and later made available for implementation in other EU-countries.
These measures will improve patients’ self-efficacy regarding his or her disease and therapy and, consequently, will enhance adherence.

Frailty management Optimisation through EIP AHA Commitments and Utilisation of Stakeholders input [FOCUS]

Our purpose is to critically reduce the burden of frailty in Europe by assisting those partners within the European Innovation Partnership for Active Healthy Ageing (EIPAHA) with commitments focusing on early diagnosis/screening and/or management of frailty to achieve scalability. We have selected EIPAHA because it constitutes a critical instrument for the EU and because it composes the widest representation of initiatives about frailty in Europe.
Our project offers both a service and a network. The service consists of evidence-based guidelines to critically help the selected group of partners to satisfactorily achieve their goals. The network intends to prolong the service in the long term.
To achieve that purpose (WP4) we will define the roadmap, in that we will i) describe the state of art (review of the scientific literature), ii) get a picture of the status of the affected commitments within EIPAHA (barriers, enablers, etc.), and iii) obtain information of the needs of stakeholders. With this real-world landscape in hand, WP5 will define indicators and use a scientifically sound method, comparative effectiveness research, to draw conclusions regarding the most adequate and customized approach to assist commitments in achieving success. Inequalities, cultural conditions or cross-border issues will be considered as representative of the diversity in Europe. Guidelines and toolkits will be issued with the perspective of sustainability. WP6 will constitute the “Platform for Knowledge Exchange” (PKE), which will both facilitate and perpetuate exchange between partners and stakeholders to achieve synergies and guide progression. PKE will act as a repository and as an instrument for dissemination too. WP7 will be a practical test to verify the usability and performance of guidelines in real EIPAHA commitments.
Relevance derives from the wide prevalence of frailty in Europe, consistently the focus throughout the work programme.
