Gesundes Kinzigtal now a member of European Research Platform
Since mid-July, Gesundes Kinzigtal has been an active, and the second German member of the EIP on AHA, the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing. The objective of the network, established by the European Commission, is the further development of healthcare models – especially in view of an active, but aging population. To be recorded as a so-called reference site in EIP on AHA, amongst others, the participation of Gesundes Kinzigtal in research projects, political and committee involvement, activities in integrated care and the scientific evaluation of their own projects were evaluated.
Gesundes Kinzigtal GmbH has long been active on an international basis. Its research projects ensure close contact with partners from 16 European nations. This includes the BeyondSilos Project, focusing on the viability of living in one’s own home in spite of ageing and possible nursing/frail care needs. It incorporates the implementation of a networked healthcare system in Gesundes Kinzigtal, for the improvement of communication between medical practitioners and nursing.
Amongst others, the members of EIP on AHA include the Saxony Consumer Protection Ministry, the University of Coimbra in Portugal, the Czech Palacký University Hospital in Olomouc as well as the Regional Healthcare Authority of the Ille de France in Paris with its affiliated hospitals.
