In addition to the direct impact on the improvement of the quality of life for the PM patients and on the efficiency of the health systems, the following impacts are expected for the RITMOCORE Project:

  • Growing awareness and successful use of public procurement to boost ICT innovation applied to active and healthy ageing, ultimately benefiting the growing ageing population across Europe;
  • Contribution with data and experiences to regulatory and legislative process development addressing potential barriers to procurement of innovative solutions for active and healthy ageing;
  • Contribute to inform policy measures that foster the take-up of ICT solutions for active and healthy ageing;
  • Create new opportunities for market uptake and economies of scale for the supply side for ICT based solutions and services for active and healthy ageing in a Digital Single Market for Europe;
  • Contribution to an open and comprehensive socio-economic evidence base for ICT investments in the field that can support the development of sustainable business models (e.g. cost-benefit analysis, increased efficiency of health and care systems, impact assessments, return on investments, quality of life improvements for users, ethics, safety gain and user satisfaction;
  • Realising more forward-looking procurement approaches aiming at ambitious quality and efficiency improvements in the area of public interest concerned;
  • Reducing fragmentation of demand for innovative solutions by implementing more concerted procurement approaches and increased cooperation across boundaries among a critical mass of procurers with similar procurement needs that can trigger wide implementation of the innovative solutions;
  • Improving the competitiveness and growth of companies by developing innovations meeting the needs of European and global procurement markets;
  • Reduced admissions and days spent in care institutions, improvements in daily activities and quality of life of older people through effective use of ICT and better coordination of care processes;
  • Integration of care and general practitioners and specialized nurses empowerment;
  • To contribute to the overall objectives of EU strategy for healthy ageing by tackling the three main aspects of the triple win approach: 1) Quality of life of citizens, in our case by the enhancement of health quality, 2) Sustainability of public systems, by evaluating the cost-effectiveness of the approach for healthcare expenditure, 3) Sustainable growth and employment generation, by promoting the adoption of ICT innovations;
  • To contribute to the European Scaling-up strategy in Active and Healthy Ageing.
