The Sláintecare Action Plan 2019 establishes the building blocks for a significant shift in the way in which health services are delivered in Ireland. It seeks to deliver on the Future of Healthcare Committee’s vison of a health system in which care is provided in the right place, at the right time, by the right person.
Budget 2019 provided €20 million for the establishment of a new ring-fenced Sláintecare Integration Fund to test and scale how services can best be delivered.
The Sláintecare Integration Fund is seeking submissions with a focus on prevention, community care and integration of care across all health and social care settings.
Submitted projects must be in a position to be implemented in 2019.
Projects that can demonstrate partnership working and that are co-funded will be particularly welcomed.
Applications are invited for projects that will;
• Promote the engagement and empowerment of citizens in the care of their own health
• Scale and share examples of best practice and processes for chronic disease management
and care of older people
• Encourage innovations in the shift of care to the community or provide hospital avoidance
