User profiling for coordinated and integrated care

Integrated care has been increasingly advocated as an approach to promote better coordination of services and quality of care at different levels. In this study, views were elicited from different users of the healthcare system (patients, informal carers and healthcare professionals) in four European countries. The views pertained to current states of care and the role that remote patient monitoring and telehealth in general can play to facilitate effective implementation of integrated care. Overall, services were perceived to be fragmented at different levels ranging from personal to system fragmentation. Approaches such as telehealth, remote patient monitoring and having specialised urgent clinics in primary care were positively perceived by users as possible solutions for tackling fragmented care and for promoting better integration of services.
