The project builds upon the preliminary achievements of the B3 Action Group on Integrated Care of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) that first developed the concept of the B3 Maturity Model. Through the activities of the EU Health Programme funded project SCIROCCO, the Model has been further refined and is supported by a validated online self-assessment tool for integrated care. The ambition of the SCIROCCO Exchange project is to maximise the value and impact of the Model and Tool. The purpose of this hub is to facilitate the process of “matching” the needs of the regions with existing evidence on integrated care, good practices, tools and guidelines and thus facilitate the learning and exchange of good practices. The project will deliver improved coding of available evidence on integrated care and make the learning readily available to potential adopters. The project also explores the readiness of local environment for the adoption of integrated care, using the SCIROCCO online self-assessment tool, in order to understand the local needs and the ground for the transition. This will serve as a basis to design a tailored capacity-building approach and personalised assistance to national and regional health and social care authorities. The project will capture the learning from the process of transferability and knowledge transfer in order to inform improvement planning for integrated care. Finally, the project will also be an opportunity to explore the potential expansion of the SCIROCCO Maturity Model and its online self-assessment tool for integrated care to other relevant areas of active and healthy ageing.

Main objectives: The three main objectives of the proposal are: prevent avoidable cardiovascular diseases (CVD); strengthen the support for people with CVD; and reinforce cardiovascular research.

How to achieve: The whole population needs to be addressed as well as those at high risk of and those already living with CVD. Therefore, the proposal’s intervention logic is to target policy makers, especially at EU level, to effect changes in policies to achieve small reductions in risk factors across EU’s population of about 500 million, and thus reducing the overall number of people at risk of CVD. The intervention logic, with respect to individuals at high risk for CVD and those already living with it, is to enhance member organisations’ capacity to support patients and fund optimal research. Activities to underpin the intervention logic include a) effective dissemination to EU policy makers of evidence for action (advocacy); b) training and exchange meetings for member organisations (capacity-building and knowledge-sharing); and c) strategic interaction with stakeholders (cooperation/engagement with alliances).

Relevance to the work programme: Two priority areas of the 2017 work programme are: 1) prevention and health determinants; 2) chronic diseases. The proposal’s activities address these head on. CVD make up a substantial part of the chronic disease burden accounting for 19% of all DALYs (on a par with cancer). Tackling CVD is essential for the EU and its member states to achieve international targets on chronic diseases, i.e. a 25% reduction in premature mortality from non-communicable diseases by 2025; and to reduce premature mortality from NCDs by one third by 2030 (Sustainable Development Goals, Goal 3). The proposal’s activities focus strongly on promoting cost-effective promotion and prevention measures in line, in particular, with the EU strategy on diet and nutrition. The proposal is highly relevant to third health programme’s thematic priorities
