PEOPLE Sub-objective nº 2 E-Health and Independence
In Europe, the number of people aged from 65 to 80 will rise by nearly 40% between 2010 and 2030 By 2050 more than a quarter of the European population is expected to be over 65 years The aging population and poor lifestyles will lead to more people suffering from long-term conditions In the western world, the ratio of workers to retirees is declining and the number of people living alone is rising The cost of providing health and social care will increase at an unsustainable rate, with social and economic implications E-Health and Independence
Pilot studies show that investment in technology improves the effectiveness and delivery of residential and domiciliary care. Evidence supports the value of remote monitoring for people with chronic diseases 35-56% reduction in mortality 47% reduction in risk of hospitalization 6 days reduction in length of hospital admission 40-64% reduction in physician time for checks 63% reduction in transport costs Technologically-supported health and care services can help reduce demands on carers and provide better, more effective solutions for health and independence. E-Health and Independence
Aims : To develop technologically-supported services in order to provide sustainable health and social care in the future To promote project proposals in the four identified thematic areas of need in the development of these technologies and services To encourage projects reflecting the strong link between ‘e-Health and Independence’ and other sub-objectives, such as 'Social and e-inclusion' and 'Silver economy’ To promote practical projects showing genuine innovation
E-Health and Independence Priority 2.1 Integration of stakeholders, agencies, industries, private/public sectors, health/social care providers Promoting integration of services with common standards between any of the above organizations, and between participating countries, to develop a 'single desk' policy, focused on the individual service user.
E-Health and Independence Priority 2.2 Supporting professional carers Increasing access to and the professionalism of telecare/telehealth training for professional carers Establishing relationships and roles between professionals and the telecare/telehealth service user, their family and their informal carers
E-Health and Independence Priority 2.3 Dissemination of information on currently available telecare/telehealth technologies Raising awareness of available telecare/telehealth technologies amongst the general public and commissioners in organisations providing care
E-Health and Independence Priority 2.4 Encouraging and improving the take-up of technologies Improving the take-up of technology-supported health and care services by addressing one or more of the issues around poor take-up e.g. lack of understanding of the benefits, fears regarding data security, general fear of technology, unwillingness to be ‘badged’ as needing care by the presence of obvious technology in their home/on their person, inability to interface with the technology (e.g. visually-impaired, non native-language speakers etc).
E-Health and Independence Integration of telecare services, promoting a 'single desk' policy Telecare training for professional carers Relationships established between professionals and non-professionals in telecare services Improved awareness of and access to current telecare technologies Poor take-up issues addressed Models of transferable best practice International networks of experts in ICT for health and independence. Supportable and sustainable care provision, information services Databases and demonstrators of telecare information/services/technologies Policy measures, instruments & recommendations to stimulate and interlink health and social care provision Possible Outputs and Outcomes:

Noord-Brabant Sub-objective nº 4 ------------ Social and e-inclusion
Noord-Brabant -In the south of the Netherlands with 2,5 million inhabitants -68 - mostly urban – municipalities -2 nd most important region in terms of economy and population -Sound physical and technological infrastructure and high educated population -Ageing population: 14,5% over 65 but in 2020 20% -Shortage in the labour market in near future. -Nanny state culture
Noord-Brabant -Limited responsibilities regional government -Department of social and cultural development -Smart Care programme: AAL and telecare. -Liveable communities: participation and social cohesion -Therefore: focus on SO2 and SO4
Social and e-inclusion Aims: To look for good practices and innovative solutions to promote the social participation of vulnerable groups using ICT in particular and we aim to learn from these. We are aiming at three social themes for improving: - the accessibility, availability and quality of services, - the labour market accessibility and better equip vulnerable groups for the labour market, - local participation at an area and neighbourhood level.
Social and e-inclusion Aims: This solution focussed objective is therefore to increase ICT related opportunities and to decrease the ICT related threats to social participation and fully-fledged citizenship for everyone, in order to improve the quality of life. The evidence of proven effectiveness of practices and solutions, according to the insights and experience of the internal and external experts involved, will be the key to the the selection of successful bids.
Social and e-inclusion Priority nº 4.1a To explore, develop or implement solutions which should result from or be part of integrated policy development. That is to say policy development which includes integral problem analysis and planning. Integrated means that social, physical, spatial and economic aspects are all taken into account.
Social and e-inclusion Priority nº 4.1b To explore, develop or implement service provision and product delivery which have to be part of a joined up local approach of housing organisations, welfare services, healthcare organisations. This improves services and makes the solution more effective for the demands of people living in a neighbourhood of a city or village.
Social and e-inclusion Priority nº 4.2a To develop and implement a demand-driven approach Therefore methods and instruments are developed to involve users in an active way in policy development, product development and implementation from the start. This concerns also vulnerable groups of excluded people who have to be encouraged into inclusion and have to be motivated to see the benefits of ICT proficiency and have to be equipped to use ICT.
Social and e-inclusion Priority nº 4.2 b To stimulate E-awareness of users and potential users of included and excluded users of ICT. To analyse the features and critical factors of included and excluded groups and to develop methods ands instruments to improve their E-awareness and ICT proficiency

Sub-objective nº5 Social Entrepreneurship
Aims: increase of social cohesion; increase of social awareness; increase of local and regional authorities capability in efficient support of social entrepreneurship; increase of knowledge and practical skills; increase in social enterprises’ ability contribute to cooperation for local and regional development.
SOME DEFINITIONS The Social Economy: ‘the third sector’ (the community sector, the voluntary sector and the social enterprise sector). Social economy organisations: Are set up for a social and environmental purposes (not just to make a profit) Have unpaid leadership (ie Board members, Directors or Trustees) Have a lot of community or user involvement in how they are run Reinvest profit rather than paying it out to shareholders Social entrepreneurship: the work of a social entrepreneur (someone who recognizes a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to organize, create, and manage a venture to make social change) Social enterprises: businesses with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community. 3 common characteristics: Social aims Enterprise focused Local ownership
The total number of social enterprises in the South East region is 10,050 when taking a narrow definition and 17,039 when taking a wider definition. Of the 10,500 narrowly defined social enterprises 59% are charities showing that charitable status is not necessarily a useful indicator of enterprise orientation. The largest sectors are health and education related organisations and there are a greater number of social enterprises in Hampshire and Kent. Almost 2/3 of the social enterprises have trading income making up more than 75% of their total income which suggests that they are business oriented. Just under half of the social enterprises have turnover of more than £40,000. One quarter (2593 social enterprises) have turnover of more than £100,000. SOCIAL ENTERPRISE IN THE SE
Access to finance. Base rate fell 5% between the end of 2007 and early 2009 - loans to existing clients that are linked to Base Rate result in a reduction in CDFI income Business support specifically - high quality specialist support in addition to networks and mentoring opportunities lack of capacity of the specialist social enterprise support providers in the region need for a coordinated support approach in terms of better partnership working and communication between key sub-regional social enterprise networks and specialist support providers in the region. The sector needs to share best practice within the region and replicate support models that are currently working well in some areas. need to raise awareness of the sector and further understanding is required of the term ‘social enterprise’. CHALLENGES
