Developing a sustainability plan to ensure the outcomes, activities and best practices to be integrated into National, Regional and EU-international policies
The importance of creating solid and sustainable health information lies at the core of InfAct. WP4 works to develop a sustainability plan and a follow-up method supporting the InfAct outcomes, activities and best practices to be integrated into regional, national and international health research and policy-making. This includes fostering the involvement of MSs, EU departments, and international institutions, in the development and progress of InfAct's goals.
- 4.1 Set up an Assembly of Members (AoM) consisting of representatives of Ministries of Health and of Research from the MSs. The AoM will agree on the way forward and discuss structural alternatives for long-term projection of InfAct’s activities, legal/data protection context, evidence-based policy recommendations and the sustainability plan. The AoM will act as liaison with their research, national health system and national Public Health authorities.
- 4.2 Policy dialogues between national nodes and InfAct partners, to raise awareness and acceptance in decision-makers on innovative actions to improve EU health information systems. Fact sheets are developed and used in these meetings, reporting on the main outcomes of InfAct. The dialogues will include the discussion on translating InfAct’s results and innovative outcomes into policies and decision-making and integrating evidence into health information systems.
- 4.3 Develop a sustainability plan to integrate the findings of InfAct into EU/MS protocols. It translates InfAct’s results into MS Health Information systems, with the insight and consensus provided in the meetings with WP leaders, Ministries of Health and Research representatives, national nodes, and international partners (Tasks 4.1 and 4.2).
