CHESS will propose and evaluate models and methodologies that facilitate the necessary adaptations and evolution as well as empower users towards adoption of connected and coordinated care models.
Change is complicated in healthcare because of the need to sustain a service which has severe resource limitations as well as being very fragmented with high heterogeneity in and across countries.
Therefore in order to implement change to improve healthcare, it is essential to:
- identify the barriers which are in the way of change,
- that the patient and clinician needs are met,
- users of the service must be empowered to accommodate new ways of acting in the healthcare system.
CHESS will achieve this through 3 research projects that focus on the patient perspective from a lifestyle and technology focus and from a clinician perspective with an educational focus.
