The "Monitoring and Assessment Framework for the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing" (MAFEIP) intends to support evidence-based decision-making processes for all institutions and users in the health and care sector.
MAFEIP represents one of the three cross-cutting initiatives that are open to any Partner to participate along with the Blueprint on Digital Transformation of Health and Care and the Innovation 2 Market initiative, within the framework of the new 2017-2019 EIP on AHA cycle. Additionally, the Horizon 2020 project, DigitalHealthEurope, also counts with the MAFEIP to assess the impact of large-scale deployment of digital solutions for person-centred integrated care.
MAFEIP is a web-based tool whose purpose is to estimate the health and economic outcomes of a large variety of ICT enabled social and health innovations, including new care pathways, devices, surgical techniques, and organisational models, among others.
MAFEIP measures the likelihood that the assessed interventions will achieve their expected impacts in terms of both increased efficiency and improved health and quality of life of the beneficiaries. It also allows to simulate changes in the interventions in order to detect the key determinants of their effectiveness and usefulness and guide further design, development or evaluation.
The framework and the tool were initially developed to provide a common model and a shared language in response to the EIP on AHA members’ specific monitoring needs. Today the tool has achieved a high level of maturity and has gone through a collaborative improvement and refinement process which makes it usable and flexible to adapt to different kinds of users. Besides EIP on AHA, MAFEIP is also being used on the H2020 projects DigitalHealthEurope, and Gatekeeper.
