SUSTAINABLE INTEGRATED CARE MODELS FOR MULTI-MORBIDITY DELIVERY, FINANCING AND PERFORMANCE

 

SELFIE


An EU-funded Horizon2020 project in PHC-23-2014 Developing and Comparing New Models for Safe and Efficient Prevention-oriented Health and Care Systems.

WHAT IS THE SELFIE PROJECT?

SELFIE (Sustainable intEgrated care modeLs for multi-morbidity: delivery, FInancing and performancE) is a Horizon2020 EU project that will contribute to the current state of knowledge and provide applicable policy advice on integrated care for persons with multi-morbidity. Currently, over 50 million persons in Europe have more than one chronic disease, and this number will increase dramatically in the near future. As a consequence, health care spending will increase to a staggering 20% of GDP.

Multi-morbidity will become the number one threat to population health and economic sustainability of health care systems. New models of care for multi-morbid persons are urgently needed. SELFIE aims to improve person-centered care for persons with multi-morbidity by proposing evidence-based, economically sustainable, integrated chronic care models that stimulate cooperation across health and social care sectors. It also aims to propose appropriate financing/payment schemes that support the implementation of these models.
