While EU health systems face similar challenges with ageing populations, rising comorbidities & financial insecurities, those in Central & Eastern Europe are still going through a transition to more modern, responsive & sustainable systems In some ways, change seems risky and is further limited by cost & performance pressures. Accordingly, policy recommendation(s) from INTENT to our target groups are clear & implementable & be supported by incentives to promote wider adoption. The policy making partners & associate partners are the main communication routes for this output. They have the capacity to reach both regional and national level policy making bodies.
The patient-centred model and associated indicators has been integrated into the online benchmarking tool which is then piloted. The benchmarking exercise in each pilot site influenced new attitudes & behaviour within the TG1 target group to adopt a patient-centred cancer care model by identifying strengths and weaknesses in operational efficiency, quality, patient experience & resource allocation.
OECI is the host of a manual version of a benchmarking tool (the Bench-Can tool). This tool is being re-cast as an online benchmarking tool with revised indicator sets for patient-centred care and health innovation. The OECI members were engaged in the preparation of this proposal and are an INTENT partners. More specifically, they have agreed to host & promote the online tools & the virtual 'Know--How' Centre and to maintain these INTENT outputs beyond the project.
Know- How centre is accessible at the https://intent-vkhc.uzis.cz/ All project outputs are posted on the website including best practices, lessons learned, experiences and the benchmarking tool thus ensuring the sustainability of project results.
