Abstract: Chronic conditions are growing to pandemic proportions. There is evidence that chronic conditions may be managed successfully using telehealth, but this is not leading to large scale deployment. Organisational and structural changes are needed to progress from pilots to real implementations that are integrated in the care routines. The ACT project goes beyond the trial setting to assess programs implementing care coordination (CC) and telehealth (TH) in different EU regions. The aim is to identify best practice organisational and structural processes supporting integration and implementation of telehealth in a care coordination context for routine management of patients with long-term medical conditions. In this report we describe the frame- work of indicators for CC&TH outcomes and drivers that define data elements collected during the project. The evaluation engine is responsible for capturing, monitoring and evaluating CC&TH deployment, using collected data. The evaluation results contribute to the “best practice cookbook” that will facilitate CC&TH deployment at scale. This report also shares what we have learned from a data transfer test case. (More)
