OptiMedis alongside the Strasbourg Eurometropolis and the region Pays de Saverne in France (Alsace)
OptiMedis supports the Strasbourg Eurometropolis and the region of Pays de Saverne Plaine et Plateau in preparing a dossier for the second round of a call for tender of the French government called “Territoires d’innovation de grande ambition”. The project “La santé en mouvements, une ambition partagée” (health in action, a shared ambition) aims to promote innovative and participatory health actions in the participating communities. Under the roof of a so called “house of health” the Strasbourg Eurometropolis and their partners developed several actions to improve health determinants of the local population, to find innovative solutions for better health care and to set up integrated care strategies for risk patients. In the current submission phase until April 2019 OptiMedis has two missions: First, OptiMedis supports the French project team in defining indicators to monitor performances and improvements in regional health services. Second, we conceptualize a model for the health region Saverne based on the experiences in the integrated care project Gesundes Kinzigtal. In case of a grant agreement, OptiMedis is asked to become a long-term strategic partner to implement integrated and community based health care in Pays Saverne under participation of the French government.
