SCIROCCO Exchange featured at AAL 2021
The AAL (Ambient Assisted Living) Forum is the annual event where the community of healthy ageing gathers to discuss the existing opportunities in health technology and reflect on the future of ageing well in the digital world. More than 700 delegates gather from different fields and domains every year. It took place officially between 18 and 20 October, as the main event of the II edition of the European Week of Active and Healthy Ageing (EWAHA), from 18 to 22 October. Some of the main topics in the Forum were:
- How to build a platform for innovation and change
- Align Healthcare systems with the needs of an ageing population
- Intergenerational Solidarity
- make the socio-economic case for impact investment into healthy ageing.
SCIROCCO Exchange actively contributed to the Forum by introducing SCIROCCO Exchange Knowledge Management Hub and SCIROCCO Exchange Tool for Integrated Care in particular. The Tool was designed to assess the local conditions enabling integration of health and social care services. For the purpose of the workshop, the local conditions for the implementation of hospitalisation@home services were explored in two different settings: Italy and Netherlands. This included the organisational and individual change management challenges related to the implications of the shift towards hospitalisation@home including e.g., putting patients at the centre, changing roles and changing responsibilities at organisational and individual levels, needs for training and qualifications and other. The presentation slides can be accessed here.
