Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset: Swedish Karolinska University Hospital coordinates consortium of leading European univers...

A consortium of seven leading European university hospitals,
coordinated by Karolinska University Hospital in Sweden, will join
efforts to innovate procurement of digital health and care services.
The project will engage all stakeholders, such as hospitals,
developers, industrial partners, medical researchers and health
professionals as well as patients, in order to address unmet needs in
hospital services and develop methods for procurement of innovation.
The project is funded by Horizon2020, the European Union research
framework program. It kicked-off during the first project meeting in
Vienna on December 3rd, 2018, and will run until 2021.

The digital transformation of healthcare asks for the procurement of
innovative solutions for which public-private collaborations are
essential. Currently, these collaborations are often reactive and not
fully connected with healthcare needs and stakeholders' involvement.

- To address this challenge, the Platform for Procurement of
Innovation and Innovation of Procurement will create a cross-border
Community of Practice of European university hospitals says Nicke
Svanvik, Director of Innovation and Development at the Karolinska
University Hospital and he continues, the platform brings together
expertise on digital healthcare, patient-centered care and
procurement from the demand and supply side with the ultimate aim to
address shared unsolved clinical challenges.

Platform for Procurement of Innovation and Innovation of Procurement
is a Collaboration & Support Action under Horizon2020, funded with a
grant of €3 million by the European Commission. Partners in the
consortium are Karolinska University Hospital (Sweden), Erasmus
University Medical Center Rotterdam (the Netherlands), San Raffaele
Hospital (Italy), Medizinische Universität Wien (Austria), Vall
d'Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus (Spain), Agency for Health Quality
and Assessment of Catalonia (Spain), Helsinki University Hospital
(Finland) and King's College Hospital (United Kingdom).

The consortium

The consortium consists of leading European university hospitals that
are members of the European University Hospital Alliance (EUHA), as
well as additional partners including affiliated research
institutions and an independent health quality and assessment agency.
The project will be supported by the EUHA, EIT Health and MedTech
Europe.
