ROSIA: Remote rehabilitation service for isolated areas

Main Goal:

ROSIA wants to pave the way for an extensive deployment of the self-care model for long-term conditions and disabilities by first focusing on rehabilitation.

Program: HORIZON 2020

Code: 101017606


ROSIA (which stands for Remote RehabilitatiOn Service for Isolated Areas), will deliver a comprehensive service to patients in need of rehabilitation, enabled by cutting-edge technology, new care pathways and community support.

ROSIA is ready to purchase the design of a technology-enabled all-in-one service, flexible enough to adapt to a large variety of European health-care systems, and which will allow the full development of ROSIA’s model – complementing existing public resources with a public-private partnership.

ROSIA solve the challenges:

  1. Make disruptive technological solutions in self-managed care available for the telerehabilitation market, addressing current and future public healthcare needs in this field.
  2. Enable data driven interventions tailored to the patient’s needs and context.
  3. Implement a flexible model of personalized integrated care pathways and procedures to support the patient in self-managed care, and redesign the rehabilitation services to include an effective tele-care and proximity element, better fitted to 21st century patients, shifting away from the strictly-in-person care models.
  4. Strengthen the role of the community to support the multidimensional needs of the individual. The community will contribute to the well-being and also provide social networks, motivation, peer support, complementary rehabilitation treatments and encourage adoption of healthier lifestyles.
  5. To empower patients and/or families to become as self-reliant as possible in matters related to healthcare, supported by all the necessary educational, motivational, and technological resources.
  6. To validate and generate evidence of value of each of the components of the telerehabilitation model, from clinical outcomes, to financials, including patient experiences, and workforce satisfaction perspectives.
  7. To create an open platform, designed and configured to deliver the features and functionality described in the above objectives, and that includes a governance model.
  8. To generate a business model which guarantees the long-term sustainability of ROSIA’s care model both for the public buyer and for the provider.
  9. To improve the overall experience of the patient and to protect their dignity.
