UNWIRED Health will redesign health care delivery, introducing a mobile care path for consumers. The project will deploy Pre-commercial Procurement (PCP) to create step-change innovations in mobile patient ICTs in order to empower patients enabling patient-centric care, using mobile devices and converging interoperable platforms. No current or future market solution exists as it would require cooperation of health administrations and providers across multiple nations. The consortium consists of three procurers introducing the innovation into their territories, Catalonia, Scotland and Southern Denmark and three vendor independent non-profit associations gathering a significant broad range of organizations and enterprises.The project aims 1) to establish an agreed PCP process across Europe and 2) to use the developed PCP process to run a call for tenders for the development of mobile eHealth services. This service will include an app to coach patients with heart failures enabling education, motivation, remote monitoring and other functionalities, integrating and coordinating care provided by a hospital and the primary care physician. This app will be innovative, fully integrating the app in the regional public health systems and can be prescribed by GPs. These services will be implemented in open platform infrastructures that will make the app platform-agnostic, suitable to any smartphone and any participating operator. This will demand the collaboration of operators and software integrators to bid for the tender. The vendor associations will act as catalyst to encourage their member enterprises to participate in the bid fostering the development of open platforms and interoperable solutions, AQUAS will assess the clinical adequacy, while the three procuring authorities will contribute with solid knowledge of innovative clinical paths and their strategic plans.
