Ready-set-GO: Kicking off the EIT Health project iPDM-GO in Copenhagen
On 31 January and 1 February 2019, the iPDM-GO consortium met in Copenhagen for its kick-off meeting. The project is funded by EIT Health and brings together partners from industry, academia and healthcare administration to deliver personalized solutions and services for people with diabetes. LINQ will facilitate the administrative, financial and contractual management and support project communication.
While the costs associated with chronic diseases like diabetes continue to rise, many people with diabetes still do not achieve their treatment goals. To address this challenge, the iPDM-GO consortium will build on the results of the PDM-ProValue study program and further personalize diabetes care by identifying and tailoring services to each patient’s unique needs, preferences and circumstances.
The iPDM-GO consortium has extensive expertise and skills in the clinic, computer science, health psychology, health economics, bioinformatics and close-to-market clinical research & development, and strives to improve the quality of life for people with diabetes in a way that is sustainable for healthcare systems by delivering personalized solutions and services.
Overall, iPDM-GO aims to create triple impact by adding value:
to the healthcare experience of individual patients
to the health of people with chronic diseases
to the socio-economic sustainability of healthcare provision
LINQ was particularly delighted to complement the programme of the kick-off meeting, which included presentations on the project work packages, their objectives and key performance indicators, with a workshop for administrative personnel. This tailor-made session highlighted the special characteristics of the EIT Health funding programme and provided practical information that will help project members navigate through the complex contractual, administrative and financial framework in which iPDM-GO is embedded. LINQ will be a reliable partner for them during this journey and is looking forward to supporting all partners in the implementation of this important project.i
