Mid-term Workshop

The SCIROCCO Exchange project aims to support health and social care authorities in the adoption and scaling-up of integrated care.

The ambition of the SCIROCCO Exchange project is to maximise the value and impact of the Model and the Tool by developing a Knowledge Management Hub to act as a facilitator of capacity-building support for integrated care. The Hub is currently available in 10 languages and has been used in nearly 100 organisations, regions, and countries in Europe and beyond. The increased use and uptake of SCIROCCO Exchange Knowledge Management Hub has resulted in an interest to apply SCIROCCO Exchange Tool for Integrated Care to additional areas of active and healthy ageing such as goal-oriented care, integrated care in nursing homes or long-term care. The Tool has also been adapted to assess the readiness for open innovation and digital neighbourhood concepts.


The focus for this workshop will be the adaptation/expansion of SCIROCCO Exchange tool. The Online Self-Assessment Tool was designed to assess the local conditions enabling integration of health and social care services

The Tool has been used across a wide range of organisations and health and care systems, providing more in-depth understanding of the opportunities and the challenges which affect progress to integrated care.  

The ambition of the project is to maximise the value and impact of the SCIROCCO tool for regions and organisations involved in the deployment of integrated care.
