Work packages

Work Packages:

  • WP1 Project Management and dissemination: Overall project coordination, administration and dissemination of results. All partners will participate in coordination meetings and devote time to progress monitoring and reporting. Partners will also contribute to dissemination of results.
  • WP2 Screening Methods: Based on known parameters, model a screening method to identify pre-diabetics.
    1. Use existing models for data analytics to find risk populations and their risk profiles based on integrated data from existing data sources combined with open sources.
    2. Real world data (from EHR), survey-based data and additional sources will be considered in the screening methodology. The screening method will be built on groundwork of existing screening methods across participating countries.
    3. Collaborative process involving a range of potential partners to contribute to pre-diabetic population detection. Other sectors’ collaborators than healthcare will be considered to increase model’s capabilities to reach target population.
  • WP3 Design of Health movement service: The work package will detail and implement the health movement service including both the integrator service (based on mobile system developed by the 4D project) and the ecosystem of services by different providers in a state ready for proof of concept testing (WP5). Health services will be delivered by community stakeholders that currently exist in the individual’s everyday life e.g. pharmacies, grocery stores, fitness and health care stakeholders. Contacts to organizations in this ecosystem exist from previous work in in Sweden, but continued development is included in WP. The design work is based on personas from previous work and will be in close collaboration with users. Motivation of the individual is central to the services.
  • WP4 Health Index: The WP will define the health index by identifying measurable parameters that defines health (clinical outcomes, clinical data, PREMs – patient reported experience measures, PROMs – patient reported outcome measures) and their interrelationships. The aim of the health index is to demonstrate how health varies over time for the population. This means that it is possible to compare health metrics between different populations (e.g. geographic areas or cohorts) and see how it varies over time. This is the base for the reimbursement system as a defined Health index for a population can be procured with a current value and a value of reaching the target.
  • WP5 Study (proof of concept): A study involving patients with pre-diabetes or just diagnosed with diabetes will be planned and executed. Study design is based on previous study in 4D project but further evolved for this project. Ethical approval will be needed. The study will compare 3 different groups:
    • Patients who receive a leaflet with information about how to take care of themselves when diagnosed with pre-diabetes,
    • Patients who receive treatment from a health care organization,
    • Patients who are treated in the health movement concept. The results will show which kind of treatment is the most effective both in the perspective of PROM and PREM but also from a cost perspective.
  • WP6 Business models: Once the health movement service is designed and preliminary data is available from Health index and test study developments, the results will potentially help to define an economic impact in terms of costs, and the definition of a specific business case, including:
    • Studying strategic context and market trends
    • Mapping of stakeholder’s needs
    • Defining of value proposition
    • Studying customers/users’ segmentation
    • Evaluating funding schemes (potential reimbursement) and revenue model
    • Final definition of the business model canvas
    • Strategy on IPR and licensing agreements.
