Validated and ready - Joint Action Plan endorsed by diverse stakeholders

The DIHsP4_Medicine project has successfully completed its implementation phase, culminating in the development of a strong Joint Action Plan (JAP) aimed at continuing and expanding the collaboration of EDIHs specializing in the healthcare sector, based on comprehensive insights and mapping conducted by the four Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs). 

The Joint Action Plan is the main outcome of the DIHs_P4Medicine partnership, which aimed to remove barriers to the use of collaboration mechanisms between DIHs. It leverages existing resources and capabilities to support businesses and public authorities in their digital transformation through joint development, planning and investment. The JAP focuses specifically on promoting the adoption of the P4 paradigm in medicine — predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory healthcare. 

In a month-long robust validation process, the JAP was supported by more than 50 participants from different sectors of healthcare representing the quadruple helix: Industry, academia, civil society (including patient and healthcare professional associations) and government. Given their expertise and central role in the industry, their insights were critical to ensure the effectiveness and relevance of the JAP.  We need more collaboration/co-creation/co-operation/synergy/connection/partnerships ... were the most frequently voiced terms by the participating stakeholders and the proposed actions are aimed at doing just that.  

“The presented actions strongly target doctors and emphasize the importance of raising awareness of health data, its ethics and data protection issues — areas that are inextricably linked to our medical profession. While the first strategic line aims to improve connectivity with our profession, traditional networking approaches may not be enough. There is a critical need for more education on health data management to ensure that physicians are well-equipped to deal with these challenges, ultimately leading to better healthcare outcomes.” 

  - A stakeholder’s feedback from the validation process.   

The positive feedback from the public authorities underlined the importance of compliance, integration into existing healthcare infrastructures and addressing public health priorities. In addition, the active participation of SMEs and other industry stakeholders underlined the practicality and market orientation of the proposed initiatives.
