UNWIRED Health is a project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme for research and technological development (FP7). The project started in January 2014 and will run for 36 months.
The project aims establish an agreed PCP process across Europe and 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.
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.
