Open Evidence has won the tender on Integrated Care awarded by the Institute for prospective technological Studies (IPTS), one of the European Commission Research Centres. The study will highlight the role of ICT in integrated care and the expected impact of ICT in terms of health outcomes and health care system efficiency by means of case studies conducted in 15 countries.
