The Joint Action (JA) on implementation of digitally enabled integrated person-centred care (JADECARE) is part of a series of initiatives the EU has launched to face the challenges of the transformation of health and care in the EU. JADECARE intends to reinforce the capacity of health authorities to successfully address important aspects of health system transformation, in particular the transition to digitally enabled, integrated, person-centred care in the EU. For this purpose, 16 EU countries participate in JADECARE. In order to achieve these goals, four “Early Adopters” of original Good Practices support “Next Adopters”, i.e. participating regions of Member States to transfer the successful practices and generated knowledge into the healthcare systems of the participating partners.

Implementing four proven Good Practices of digitally enabled integrated care by 21 Next Adopters
These four original Good Practices stand for a bundle of proven practices and methods ready for being transferred to the Next Adopter health care organisations:
- Basque health strategy on ageing and chronicity: Integrated care (Basque Country, Spain)
- Catalan open innovation hub on ICT-supported integrated care services for chronic patients (Catalonia, Spain)
- The OptiMedis model – integrated population-based care (Germany)
- Digital roadmap towards an integrated health care sector (Southern Denmark Region)
By transferring these four practices, JADECARE proposes to strengthen the capacity of health authorities to successfully address all important aspects of the transformation of the health system towards digitally enabled, integrated and person-centred care.
Belgium is a federal state with three regions (Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels-Capital) and four language areas - the Flemish-speaking, French-speaking and German-speaking communities, as well as the bilingual Brussels-Capital area). Integrated care has been on the Belgian agenda for more than a decade. The first steps towards organising care pathways for people with chronic illness based on the "chronic care" model were taken in 2009 for patients with type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Contracts between patients and...
One of the four JADECARE workshops on key learnings and sustainability has been hosted at the headquarters of OptiMedis in Hamburg on 11th May 2023 (a special article providing an overview on all JADECARE Key Learning Workshops will be released with the upcoming JADECARE 23-2 Newsletter). All five next adopters for the Original Good Practice (oGP) "The OptiMedis model – integrated population-based care" participated with their local good practices in the discussions - two of them online. Findings from Estonia, Denmark, France,...
The last 2 months have been a very fruitful time for the JADECARE project, with several internal and external events. The European Implementation Event EIE2023 took place in Basel from 8 to 9 June and the Implementation Research Scientific Conference in Bilbao from 12 to 14 June. JADECARE impacts European health systems by implementing innovative digital integrated care solutions, helping to change the model of care provision in different health system situations. It sets the base to implement large-scale integrated care by...
Recently, end of May and early June 2023, JADECARE spread the word on sustainabilty at a series of dedicated workshops at the International Conference on Integrated Care (@ICIC) 2023 and the EHMA - European Health Management Association Conference 2023. In both events, members of the JADECARE Consortium from five EU countries shared the results and impact of the Joint Action that has targeted more than 4 million people at different levels: regionally, European-wide, and for future health policies. Furthermore, the JADECARE...
