End of ASSEHS project - Concluding Remarks

July 07, 2016

The ASSEHS European project has studied risk stratification (RS) tools and challenges of stratification strategies across Europe. We are in the final stage of the project, reaping the results of three years of intense effort.


The ASSEHS outputs will contribute to the innovation of care for the ageing population in Europe. It has generated knowledge on the use of stratification tools at policy making, healthcare management and clinical intervention and practice levels. The best practices and lessons learnt during the lifetime of ASSEHS will serve as examples for other European Health Services. They will help policy makers and stakeholders to design, plan, deploy and validate RS. This will help to i mprove programmes for managing multi-morbidity and complex frail older citizens. It will allow the deployment of proactive and targeted interventions adequate to the needs of patients, a personalized integrated care for the frail.

The ASSEHS project has been the joint effort of multiple partners, the Project Management team, Pilot sites and Work Package leaders and teams. Special mention has to be given to all the healthcare professionals, mangers and patients themselves that have participated in the processes of care and have been actively involved providing their knowledge and experience. The Scientific Advisory Board members have discussed and provided their insight during the Project lifetime. All together, we have been able to actively pursue the objectives and produce the project deliverables. Last but not least, we thank our Project Officer who has continuously supported and challenged our work.

A big thank you to everyone!
