Health and social care innovators meeting number 2

12. 09. 2022

In cooperation with UJEP and ICUK, we held another meeting of stakeholders who are working together to improve home care in the Czech Republic.

Due to the large number of events that took place in September on topics such as health care, ehealth, and others, we decided to go the way of cooperation with Jan Evangelista Purkyně University and the Innovation Centre of the Ústí nad Labem Region (ICUK) and implement a focus group at a joint event that took place in the Ústí nad Labem Region where ICUK is located. 

At the meeting of regional stakeholders led by UJEP, the measures from the previous workshops and the proposal of a regional action plan for the D-Care project were discussed, followed by Vojtěch Jira (DEX-IC) presenting the project Innovation in Home Care HoCare. Last but not least  we had an interesting presentation by Yvonne Prinzellner (Johanniter, Austria) of the WAALTeR project, which good practice from neighboring Austria.

The main idea of the original HoCare project and its extension were presented. The participants were introduced to the implementation of the follow-up activities of the extended project and received information on the project activities related not only to the elaboration of the regional report.
The main aim was to present the outputs not only from the Czech regional report, but also to show interesting examples of good practice that facilitate the daily life of caregivers.
During the presentation, we were able to describe the current situation of research and innovation in the field of home care and the reasons for renewing the project partnership established in the original project, which aimed to describe the impact of the COVID pandemic on home care.

The presentation provided information on the government's response at strategic level, where many new strategies have been developed (or updated in response to the COVID situation) and subsequently approved by the government.
A list of the most important documents is available:

  • Operational Programme Technologies and Applications for Competitiveness (OP TAK).
  • Strategic Framework for the Development of Healthcare in the Czech Republic until 2030 - Implementation Plan for the Digitisation of Healthcare.
  • National Research and Innovation Strategy for Smart Specialisation of the Czech Republic 2021 - 2027 (National RIS3).
