2 ICT for Health

3 Health sector in EU Health sector in EU: 9.3 % of workforce, > 15 M people (retail 13.0 M, business services 13.3m) Health expenditure > 8,5 % of GDP and grow at a pace of 4% a year (faster than EU economic growth) potential to reach 16% of GDP in EU by 2020 (Healthcast 2020, PWC) ICT penetration is low compare to other sectors. There is great potential for productivity gains.

4 Challenges for European Health Delivery Systems Ageing population Rising costs of healthcare Growing expectations of citizens Improving Patient safety Addressing mobility of patients

5 Prescriptions 80% Disch. Letters 81 % Lab. reports 95 % Reimbursement 13290 = 95 % Referrals 40113 =80% Estimated cumulative benefit by 2008: ~ € 1.4 bil.

6 Support to Deployment: eHealth Action plan: COM(2004) 356 final ‘ Main areas of activity –National/regional roadmaps –Common approaches for patient identifier –Interoperability standards for EHR and messaging –Boosting investments and uptake in eHealth –Certification and labeling –Legal framework, certification of qualifications –Yearly Ministerial conferences & exhibitions (next in SLOVENIA 4-6 May 2008) –World of Health IT yearly conferences

7 Creating the conditions Recommendation on Interoperability (2007) Working with other Commission services –DG SANCO on cross border health services –DG ENTERPRISE, MARKET, REGIO, COMPETITION on Lead market innovation, legal framework, Innovation, financing with Member States on eHealth Action Plan, and with International bodies for worldwide exploitation of EU know-how and industry

8 Facilitate the Deployment Large Scale Pilots ( CIP) Service pilots with interoperability as the central theme aiming to achieve and demonstrate a “federated” solution across borders Participation on voluntary basis Focus for 2007: –Patient summary (unforeseen situations) –Medication data (for ePrescription)

9 For improvement of care – Saving lives –ICT infrastructure for Continuity of care, Personalisation, prevention and improved patient safety For increase of productivity- Saving Money –Cost benefits possible when eHealth combined with appropriate organization and skills For economic development- eHealth Market –To facilitate sustainable growth of transparent and innovation friendly eHealth market.

11 -Prevention & Personalisation  citizen empowerment to manage own health status  emphasis in preventative lifestyle  management of chronic diseases  independent living -In the form of  Wearable, implantable, portable systems  Point-of-care systems (biochips)  Smart home environments Personal Health Systems

12 ICT for Patient Safety Advanced computerised adverse event systems: –Identification of common patterns in safety-relevant events beyond reporting nosocomial infections and/or Adverse Drug Events (ADE). –New tools for prediction, detection and monitoring of adverse events and other relevant information. –Decision support systems, intelligent medication delivery (e.g. RFID- based), and adverse event reporting systems through innovative data mining and integration techniques of existing databases –Emerging technologies like semantic mining should be explored through multimedia databases. –Include validation leading to quantitative benefits.

13 1.Integrating information relating to disease from the level of molecule, cell, organ, organism, population 2.Modelling and simulating disease related processes and human physiology 3.Predicting risks and developing more effective treatments or prevention programmes The Virtual Physiological Human (Predictive medicine)

14 Basis is the International physiome project The VPH research roadmap is developed by project STEP New basis for: Personalised (Patient-specific) healthcare solution Early diagnostics & Predictive medicine The Virtual Physiological Human - concept

15 Computational framework for multi-scale in-silico model(s) of the human physiology and a toolbox for simulation and visualisation. Patient specific model from bio-signals and (multimodal) images including molecular images Technologies involved: –Data mining, knowledge discovery tool, semantic integration, databank, biomedical imaging, modelling, simulation and visualisation techniques, HealthGrid (infrastructure and tools) The Virtual Physiological Human - technology

16 ICT for Ageing and Inclusion

17 In the EU, the share of elderly in the population will double by 2050…… Elderly Dependency Ratio (Ratio of population aged 65 and over to population aged 15-64) Sources: EU Economic Policy Committee 2001; UN Population Prospects Publication (revision 98); IMF staff estimates

18 e-Inclusion and ICT & ageing in i2010 A Single European Information Space Innovation and Investment in research Inclusion, better public services & quality of life Action Plan on “Ageing Well in the Information Society” June 2007 Support to Ambient Assisted Living Joint R&D Programme, June 2007 European e-Inclusion Initiative “To be part of the information society”, Nov 2007

19 The e-Inclusion opportunity € 55 billions from increased participation to labour of currently unemployed who do not use Internet € 10 billions from increased participation to the labour force of the students currently not using Internet € 18 billions from increased productivity from new digital skills of the currently employed who do not use Internet € 10 billions of extra GDP growth from increase in output of the ICT industry by inclusive ICT € 30 billions of extra GDP growth due to impact of inclusive e-Government

20 EU e-Inclusion Policy European e-Inclusion Initiative (adopted 8 Nov 2007) e-Inclusion matters, but too little progress Raise awareness and commitment: –E-Inclusion « Be Part of It » campaign –High-Level Ministerial Conference 2008 Enable – Accelerate – Integrate –e-accessibility R&D, pilots (accessible digital TV), legislation; digital literacy –Ageing Action Plan (CIP pilots); inclusive e-services; marginalised groups (networking) –Cooperation (networking); benchmarking through Riga Dashboard; mainstreaming

21 The ICT and Ageing opportunity 80+ population: doubles until 2050 60+ population: from 20% in 1995 to 25% in 2020 50+ population: 21% has severe vision/hearing/dexterity problems Age-related impairments: 69 million in 2005 (84 million in 2020) Cost of pensions/health/long-term care: up by 4-8 % of GDP === // === Wealth and revenues of persons over 65 is over 3000 B€. Smart homes market will triple between 2005 and 2020 Early patient discharge by tele-health: save €1,5 billion p.a. (Germany) Tele-care technology: from institutional care costs of £21,840 to £7,121 including 24 hours response (UK) €50,000 on accessible website  access to 1.9 million new customers (Tesco)

22 So what’s in the way? Older people don’t use the Internet and find technology challenging –Only 10% of people over 65 use the Internet –Over 20% of the 50+ are seriously challenged in hearing, vision or dexterity –ICT is complex and requires special skills Ageing needs not yet in main-stream products –Insufficient awareness of market opportunities and users' needs –Older users needs not built into new designs and technologies –Fragmentation of research and innovation efforts Legal and technological barriers –Legal and Ethical issues not well developed –Lack of interoperability makes solutions expensive & difficult for elderly users Fragmented Markets –Differing public policies and reimbursement schemes –Unclear business models (Who pays?)
