Change Management as a Success Factor in the Implementation, Scaling Up and Transfer of Digital Health & Social Care Solutions

A satellite event to the 14th AAATE Conference 2017

Demographic change requires regions to deploy on an increasingly large scale digital health and social care solutions to keep the costs of care sustainable without reducing its quality. Unfortunately, many attempts to develop innovative solutions have shown success at pilot level, but difficulties in the actual deployment stage. The same holds true for the transferability of solutions from one region to another: what works well in one place, might not work well in another.

Among the factors that explain these difficulties there are many that deal with change management and it is clear that digital health and social care solutions are not  merely “add-on’s” to existing care plans, pathways and ways of working. Successful deployment requires deep changes in the ways of working of people, and organisations together with new care recipient relationships.

In this seminar, we will assess some of the success factors related to organisational change and how these factors have been managed during the up-scaling and transfer of successful experiences. We will also look at tools that can help to understand how to support implementation, scalability and transferability of digital health and care solutions in the UK and in Europe. We will focus on experiences of person-centred technology deployment that are supporting care recipients in their self-management and independence, including remote monitoring.
