Abstract: The NEXES case, based on a project co-funded by the ICT Policy Support Programme Area (CIP-ICT-PSP-2007.2.2 – ICT for ageing well), aims to deploy “integrated care services for chronic patients based on structured interventions addressing not only prevention, but also healthcare and social support”. NEXES is currently in the transitional phase from existing pilot experiences to extended deployment of health/social services for elderly populations. It can supplement existing institutional approaches or offer an alternative to them. The services are grouped in four programmes that represent a broad spectrum of health problems, from those affecting citizens at risk or in the early stages of a disease to those that affect patients with advanced chronic disorders. The programmes comprise the following: (1) Wellness advice and rehabilitation for in clinically stable chronic patients to promote healthy life-styles, enhancing their self- management and improving adherence to prescribed treatments; (2) Enhanced care for frail patients, which aims to assess prevention for frail patients at high risk of hospitalisation; (3) Home hospitalisation (HH) and early discharge, which aims to explore the potential for generalisation of HH and the analysis of the interplay with other Integrated Care Services (ICS) for chronic patients; and (4) Remote support to primary care for diagnosis and therapy (Support), transferring specialised diagnostic and therapeutic interventions to primary care.
