Since 2011, the Municipality of Palaio Faliro together with neighboring municipalities of Alimos and Agios Dimitrios pioneer a number of innovative initiatives (“Kane Like Stin Ygeia” and “SmartCare”) that attempt to overcome barriers between the health and social care silos. eHealth technologies are essential in establishing sustainable business models for integrated care.
ICT supported care systems represent the way towards the new seamlessly integrated care landscape that our citizens want. In particular mhealth services offer a first class opportunity for EU countries to pioneer a future care practice that offers higher quality and increased equality services within limited-resource environments. The support of the E.C. and the valuable lessons we are learning from our partners has furthered opened the discussion to promote integrated care within our communities.
