The TAVIE VirtualNurse to help women living with HIV-AIDS. This project led by José Côté, a researcher at the Research Centre of the Hospital of the University of Montreal (CHUM Research Centre) and holder of the Research Chair on new nursing practices of the University of Montreal, has received national recognition by winning the Equality 2016 Thérèse Casgrain in the health category.<br /><br />The winning project, “From TAVIE-HIV to TAVIE-Woman: better meet the needs of women living with HIV” is a VirtualNurse intervention to support women living with HIV in taking antiretroviral therapy.<br /><br /><em>”We are extremely proud to have won this award, which for us means the importance and relevance of developing innovative initiatives that take into account the singular reality of women living with HIV to support them in taking drugs”</em> said José Côté.<br /><br />According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, women represent 23% of people living with HIV. Knowing that they have to deal with challenges specific to their gender and their health condition, including planning and monitoring of pregnancy, the Research Chair on new nursing practices of the University of Montreal in collaboration with health professionals Ste-Justine University Hospital developed the TAVIE-Woman intervention to meet their specific needs. Women are invited to take self-learning sessions to the computer, to help them manage taking their medications and prevent the risk of HIV transmission to the baby.<br /><br />The project began in June 2014. The results extracted from HIV-TAVIE (men and women living with HIV) revealed eloquent remarks from women, said José Côté: “In general, women consider that strategies offered by the VirtualNurse can track their treatment and help psychologically break the isolation and stigma they face. ” The team now wants to assess and implement the TAVIE-Woman project more widely in Quebec this fall.<br /><br />The CRCHUM team thanks the Millennia2025 Foundation and 360Medlink/MedClinik company for their contribution to the project.<br /><br />Read More:<br /><a href=”http://www.crsi.umontreal.ca/fr/”>http://www.crsi.umontreal.ca/fr/</a><br /><a href=”http://www.scf.gouv.qc.ca/index.php?id=31″>http://www.scf.gouv.qc.ca/index.php?id=31</a><br /><a href=”http://www.newswire.ca/fr/news-releases/la-ministre-lise-theriault-devoile-le-nom-des-projets-laureats-du-prix-egalite-therese-casgrain-2016-573100941.html”>http://www.newswire.ca/fr/news-releases/la-ministre-lise-theriault-devoile-le-nom-des-projets-laureats-du-prix-egalite-therese-casgrain-2016-573100941.html</a><br /><p>&nbsp;</p>

Determined to tackle the many challenges facing our healthcare, Europe is gearing up to install integrated models in its care systems. Starting on January 1st, a consortium of European partners including iMinds will join forces in KISS2.0, a one-of-a-kind project that focuses on the development of efficient and viable business models for this new approach to healthcare. It envisions generic solutions on a pan-European scale – adaptable to local care settings – involving digital technology and patient engagement.<br /><br />The strengths of the TAVIERX solution resides in part in its disease-specific approach and in the rigorous process each platform development goes through. To create a customized Virtual Nurse, the TAVIERX group works with clients’ teams (medical and brand teams) and produces customized disease- and treatment- related educational content. These complement the behavioral components created and tailored by the TAVIERX scientific team. Due to a uniqiue algorithm, the interactions between the Virtual Nurse and the patients can be tailored, critical content emphasized, and outcomes improved.<br /><br /><strong>Tackling challenges in European healthcare</strong><br />The dramatic rise of chronic diseases and co-morbidity in Europe is putting tremendous pressure on the financing of our healthcare systems. The way our care is currently organized needs a drastic shift towards a new and sustainable model: integrated care, involving prevention and self-management by patients. <br />In order to accelerate the implementation of efficient and financially viable integrated care systems in Europe, EIT Health (European Institute of Innovation &amp;amp; Technology) has launched the KISS2.0 project (January 2016 – February 2017) in which a consortium of European partners, including iMinds, will join forces.<br /><br /><strong>Models for integrated and personalized care </strong><br />Unique in its approach, KISS2.0 will develop business models for integrated and personalized care in three European regions: Flanders, Germany and Sweden. These models will be based on a commercial ICT tool for chain management by the care team and will leverage the patients’ capacity to self-manage and assess their chronic diseases, for example through the use of wearables. They will generate important market opportunities for SMEs that are directing their operations, products or services towards the integrated care system.<br /><br /><strong>Business scenario and chain management tool</strong><br />As a primary outcome, KISS2.0 will deliver valuable information for policy makers and health insurers on the most likely business scenario for integrated care in Flanders, Sweden and Germany.<br />A secondary outcome will be the development of an ICT tool to be used by (teams of) health professionals for care coordination, organization of secondary prevention and early detection of co-morbidities; but also by patients to self-manage their health and care processes. After the 1-year project duration, this stratification and chain management technology will have been tested on patients with diabetes type 2 in Belgium, Sweden and Germany and will be ready for commercialization on a European scale.<br /><br />Four small enterprises partnering in the European project consortium play a lead role in realizing these outcomes. Two of them will develop the new care organization models, while two other SMEs will build ICT tools based on an existing solution for commercial chain management. <br /><br />“We want to have a system such as Vital Health Software at our disposal that offers the intelligence and optimization features for optimal clinical assessment and stratification of diagnosed citizens, developing stratification and care pathway solutions that can be applied in Belgium. This will pave the way for new approaches to local integrated care settings and a business case for our company, fully aligned with the Belgian government’s plans on organizing Chronic Care,” explains <strong>Jan Van Emelen</strong> of MACX (KISS2.0 project partner).<br /><br /><strong>Leveraging existing know-how and living lab methodology</strong><br />The project will build on the best practices and learnings from six years of integrated eCare implementation in Gesundes Kinzigtal, Germany by project partner OptiMedis AG, and on the experience with diabetes care as an integral part of the Swedish primary care system, coordinated by Rise.<br />iMinds contributes its expertise in living lab methodology. “Our experience in panel management and setting up focus groups to capture information, as well as our know-how of innovative business modelling bring real assets to the project,” says Roger Lemmens (iMinds). The models will be tested and fine-tuned through LiCalab, one of the six Flemish Care Living Lab platforms supported by iMinds.<br /><br /><strong>Chronic Care plan of Belgian government</strong><br />In Belgium, the KISS2.0 project aligns with the federal government’s large-scale plan to improve the organization of chronic care through 4-year projects. It will offer Belgian partners iMinds and MACX unique insights on the implementation, IT challenges and customization of information systems in a multidisciplinary setting around a chronic patient, reinforcing them as candidates to spearhead one or more of Belgium’s ambitious chronic care projects starting in 2017.<br /><br />More info:<br />Katrien Van Gucht – iMinds Coordinator of KISS2.0<br /><hr />*1 – Reime, Birgit; Kardel, Udo; Melle, Christian; Roth, Monika; Auel, Marcus; Hildebrandt, Helmut (2013) From Agreement to Realisation: Six Years of Investment in Integrated eCare in Kinzigtal.

EXTRACT. Most experts agree that increasing patient engagement and improving self-management skills for chronic disease will greatly reduce healthcare inefficiencies, but right now, there are limited resources available to patients for around-the-clock guidance, available to answer the 3 a.m. questions.<br /><br />Our natural opportunity to remove the access barriers, increase patient literacy and greatly improve engagement is to employ technology that enlists patient participation. It’s the only way to sustainably improve the state of healthcare.
