Project title: EFFICHRONIC: Enhancing health systems sustainability by providing cost-efficiency data of evidenced based interventions for chronic management in stratified population based on clinical and socio-economic determinants of health.
Country: Europe wide.
Client: European Union’s III Health Programme.
Alliance partner involved: Kveloce, Spain.
Description: The project EFFICHRONIC aims to provide evidence on the positive return of investment and cost-efficiency of the application of the Chronic Disease Self-Management Programme (CDSMP) in 5 different European countries (France, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain and UK) with a particular focus on the health, medical, social, cultural and economic factors linked with a higher burden of chronic disorders in Europe. This project goes beyond the current state of the art on chronic management by carrying out an analysis of cost-efficiency data of chronic prevention and management evidenced-based programmes through integration of social determinants of health.
