"Support for the implementation and scaling up of good practices in the areas of integrated care, frailty prevention, adherence to medical plans and age-friendly communities"
The European Innovation Partnership on Active & Healthy Ageing (‘The Partnership’) was selected as a pilot to tackle the challenge of an ageing population within the Innovation Union, one of the flagship initiatives of the Europe 2020 strategy, and it is now in the implementation phase. The aim of this action is to build on the preliminary results of the Partnership, in the areas of integrated care, frailty prevention, adherence to medical plans and age-friendly communities. This action will facilitate the implementation and scaling-up of good practices at local, regional or country level or the exchange of good practices between Member States, supporting the potential of innovation in health and social care by encouraging the integration of health and care and highlighting independent living and participation in the community. The results of this action should show the benefits of moving towards community based health and social care which enables older people to remain active and healthy for longer as well as providing efficient care and treatment when needed. The results will also contribute to an informed decision-making at European level.
