Abstract

The key challenge facing healthcare systems worldwide is their ability to provide continued, well coordinated, person centred management, care and support for the
increasing number of people with multiple chronic diseases. The European Union Horizon 2020 ProACT (Integrated Technology Systems for ProACTive Patient Centred Care) project aims to address this issue by utilising existing and designing new digital technologies to improve and advance home based integrated care for individuals over the age of 65 living with multiple chronic health conditions.

This report presents findings from the needs analysis and scoping phase of the project conducted between January and September 2016. The aim of this phase of the project was to investigate the challenges that different actors in the care ecosystem face and how these are currently addressed in the two main ProACT trial sites: Ireland
and Belgium. The findings detailed in this report will serve as crucial building blocks for the design of the ProACT system. We also present an overview of the findings from an additional trial site in Italy as part of a ProACT system ‘EU transferability study’.
