The principle objective of this topic is to demonstrate how the use of an integrated, digital, user-centric health information solution could enable a tangible improvement in the ability of citizens to access and understand reliable, relevant health information from different sources.
Access to and understanding of health information are key components determining health literacy, and the health literacy level of a citizen underlies their decision-making in regarding to management of their health and care, including adherence to treatment. Accordingly, a secondary objective will be to measure how improved access to and understanding of health information translates into higher levels of treatment adherence, safer use of medicines and consequently better health outcomes, with new insights into how health information can be optimised to act as an effective risk minimisation measure.
The topic objectives will be achieved by a phased approach, in which later stages build on the outputs of the earlier research activities in an agile manner:
1. Establishing stakeholder needs and development of appropriate KPIs
2. Technology platform and digital solution
3. Evaluation of the ability of digital solutions to enhance risk minimisation approaches through the generation of real-world evidence
