The Digital Health & Care Institute is part of the newly launched NWE-Chance Interreg project along with project partners from Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
Heart failure is a growing epidemic: in the European Union about 15 million people are now living with heart failure. Between 1-2% of total healthcare expenditure can be associated with this condition, of which 50% is due to hospitalisation. Digital health is widely recognised as one of the most promising solutions to this societal challenge: in the field of cardio vascular diseases, current eHealth tools are primarily focused on rehabilitation and monitoring after hospitalisation. Today, there is a transition taking place from dedicated hospital care to the home setting, with a combination of eHealth applications and miniaturised diagnostic and therapeutic devices. This is where the NWE-Chance project comes into play.
