ProACT, a Horizon 2020 project,aimsto develop a technology ecosystemtosupport integrated care for older personswith multimorbidity(PwMs). The ecosystem will connect four key models of care and support –1)homecare (including informal care), 2) hospital care, 3) community and social care4) social support networks –and will be centred on the person at home self-managing their conditions with support from their care network. The development of a digital platform for integrated care has the potential to support existing practice, andto improve the management of a complex and integrated care plan, introducing new ways of collaboration between key actors.

Information: How to support patients to take evidence-based decisions C. Heesen HamINI.T. Germany Patient ufformation is a prerequisite of patient involvement in decision making founded in the bioethical right of patient autonomy. It is therefore at the core of patient centred medicine which is increasingly developing as a paradigm in medicine. In clinical guidelines but also legal advice patients gain more right but also duties to be mfoitned While a plethora of medical information exist very few follow rigorous development guidelines.

Background: There are few empirical investigations exploring older people’s experienceand perceptions of health technologies. While older adults generally have positive opi-nions and attitudes towards trying and using new technologies (Mitzner et al.,2010),health status itself is a moderating factor for computer use and digital literacy (Heart andKalderon,2013).In this study we have explored what technologies older people with multimorbidity(PwMs) are currently using and how they, and their networks of care, perceive technologyto support their health conditions. The results presented here are part of an extensiverequirements gathering exercise to inform the design of a digital health ecosystem thataims to support self-management and improve integration of care for older PwMs.

Background: For persons with multimorbidity (PwMs), self-management is a complexprocess that involves integration of knowledge and tasks for multiple, and often interact-ing, chronic diseases [1]. Patients are frequently required to prioritise conditions, and toreconcile conflicting information and clinical advice [2]. The current study aimed tounderstand experiences related to self-management of multimorbidity for older patients(aged over 65), and for key stakeholders in their care network. The data presented wascollected as part of an extensive requirements gathering exercise to inform the design ofa digital health ecosystem that aims to support self-management and improve integrationof care for older PwMs.
