Reorientation of the Austrian parent-child preventive care programme. Part VII: Options for an electronic implementation
Project team: Stefan Mathis-Edenhofer
Duration: May 2011 - March 2012
Publication: HTA-Projektbericht Nr. 054: https://eprints.aihta.at/948
Suggested by: Austrian Ministry of Health
The last-year project parent-child-prevention program ‘new’ aimed to give basic support to a decision on a new prevention strategy for parents during pregnancy and infants. Part I of the project summarised epidemiological data on specific risks, part II described international screening policies and part III gave and overview on the financial structure of the current parent-child-prevention program. Part IV – which comprises a comprehensive summary of the results – highlighted the critical importance of electronically realised systems for data collection and data analysis in the context of a newly structured parent-child-prevention program.
At the moment Austria organises and performs the activities around the parent-child-prevention program (“Mutter-Kind-Pass”) paper-based. Aim of this new project part VII is to learn from main national and international parent-child initiatives by analysing the information- and communication processes around these initiatives. In the main, the project aim to rule out possibilities of the implementation of activities around a ‘new’ parent-child-prevention program in the context of eHealth and particularly in the context of ELGA.
Aims of the project:
- To identify information processing- and communication elements of a ‘new’ parent-child-prevention program by an analysis on the base of the preceding project parts (part I-IV) and, additionally by analysing a selection of national and international parent-child-prevention initiatives.
- To test (on an conceptual level) the feasibility to implement information processing – and communication elements within ELGA or within alternative ways.
- To demonstrate possibilities and obstacles
Which are the activities and elements of a proposed “new parent-child-prevention program” on the base of the previous project parts?Which are national and international parent-child-prevention initiatives Which information processes and communication components exist within main parent-child-prevention initiatives?What can ELGA offer to implement information processes and communication components?Which parent-child-prevention activities could be implemented through ELGA and which alternatives should be considered?What are the challenges of implementing components of a “new parent-child-prevention program”
Ad 1 and 2:
- Identification of activities to consider for a “new parent-child-prevention program” based on the previous project parts
- systematic literature search on electronically implemented national and international parent-child-prevention initiatives
- Identification of information and communication components of a “new parent-child-prevention program”
Ad 3: Description of information and communication components of a “new parent-child-prevention program”, use cases, activities
Ad 4: Description of ELGA framework conditions
Ad 5 and 6:
- Description of perspectives on implementation possibilities, its limitations, preconditions and alternatives
