SALUDA in Polish and Swedish

2011-11-15_Haessleholm-meeting-webThe ICT for Health project members gathered in Hässleholm Sweden, 7–9 November 2011.

The Project Steering Committee met on the first day to discuss matters that concern the project’s overall development as well as its more technical details. Having passed the halfway mark of the project, it was important to see the current state of play. Ways in which to increase the collaboration between the different work packages were discussed as well.

The second day was dedicated to work package meetings. The group developing the eLearning programme, SALUDA, announced that the programme is now available in English, German, Polish, and Swedish. The web-based programme will educate 400 pilot patients with chronic heart failure about their disease and give information on how to improve their quality of life by changing their lifestyle in a very user-friendly way.

Some of the project partners participated in a test-run of the self-monitoring program. To test the usability of the actual version of the program, they entered health data, such as their blood pressure, weight and heart rate, into the electronic record.

On the final day, all the teams came together for a joint meeting. A new issue was being discussed: the Transnational Conference on eHealth acceptance in Brussels, 5–6 November 2012. The transnational event will bring together policy-makers, health sector professionals, patient associations, universities and relevant industries from the Baltic Sea Region as well as from European level. The overall coordination of the conference is in the hands of the communication team – but all project partners were asked for their support.

ICT for Health as good example in EU brochure

2011-11-08_eu-broschure-activeageingThe ICT for Health project was presented in the brochure “How to promote active ageing in Europe” , which was published by EU organisations in September 2011.

One of the major sections of the brochure sets out different types of activities that local and regional actors can implement to promote active ageing. According to the brochure, one of the key challenges of an ageing population is the increasing number of people which require long-term healthcare and supported living arrangements. Precisely at this point ICT for Health seeks to apply innovative healthcare technologies and promotes the use of self-monitoring technologies for patients with chronic illnesses. The brochure is presenting the ICT for Health project as a good example for local and regional actors to help prevent dependency and promote healthy ageing.

At the Baltic Development Forum 2011

ict conferencegdansk-dialogue_web”New Ambitions for the Baltic Sea Region” was the topic for the 13th Baltic Development Forum Summit, organised together with the European Commission’s 2nd Annual Forum on the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region in Gdansk, Poland, 24–26 October 2011. The ICT for Health project was invited to take part in the Project and Networking Village, which was organised as a parallel event to the forum. ICT for Health shared a stand with eHealth for Regions network and Northern Dimension Partnership in Public Health and Social Well-being, where the project was promoted in printed materials. Sanna Alaranta, Domantas Stundys and further project partners discussed with visitors the challenge how to raise the necessary acceptance of eHealth. With many positive conversations taking place at the stand, and valuable contacts shared, it was good to see how eHealth issues are capturing people’s interest.

His presentation at the Networking and Project Village was well received by the audience. Roland Trill also participated in the panel discussion Digital Agenda for the Baltic Sea Region. His conclusion: ‘eHealth is one of the most important areas of ICT and will benefit from an integrated digital market throughout Europe.’
