As part of the VIGOUR project, 15 regions across seven European countries have begun to prepare the next step on their journey towards integrated care. Every care authority in Europe is faced with different conditions when it comes to integrated care model development, be it in economic, technological, organisational, political or socio-cultural regard. Against this background, VIGOUR is going to implement an ambitious programme of context-sensitive support which helps care authorities developing the capacities and capabilities to implement good practices in integrated care.
The European regions that have joined forces in the VIGOUR consortium are not starting from scratch. Each region can build on previous efforts to better align care delivery to people with chronic or other conditions across the care chain, albeit in different ways and to different degrees. By passing through the first phase of a multi-staged process, each region is now preparing for the piloting of further care integration steps. All in all, this process comprises three phases (read more about the main phases here):
With the help of the experiences gained from the VIGOUR regions, evidence-based guidance material will be made publicly available at a later stage. Check also our alerts on scaling-up guidance webinars to be held towards the end of the project which will be advertised via our website.
