Integrated Healthcare in Andalusia - Analysis of primary care, specialised care, emergency care, social care and citizen support platforms
AbstractThe SIMPHS research studied the deployment of Integrated Personal Health and Social Care Services (IPHS) by analysing IPHS projects across 20 regions in eight European Countries. An outcome of the research was the identification of eight facilitators (key factors) for IPHS deployment. This report extends the analysis of facilitators to the case of Andalusia, a Spanish region recognised internationally as one of the "Best eHealth regional case studies". The aim was to review cases of Integrated Care in the region, especially those where ICT and IPHS enable integration, so as to identify the role of the eight facilitators in these settings.
