Short description
The aim of Interoperability social and health information systems is to implement in the Basque Health System an instrument to establish a common language among health and social fields. This tool allows the interoperability of social and health information systems, enabling both professionals to make a common assessment of people with health needs (target groups). InterRAI-CA involves a coordinated action between Social and Health Care professionals (who lead and support the implementation and training), 48 Municipalities, 92 Health Centers, 3 Provincial Councils, 1 Private Entity, 3 regional organizations (Osarean, Beti on and SIAC) dependent on the Basque Council of Social and Health Care, who validates the approach. Nowadays, the project has more than 376 tool users, and set up almost 150 coordinated Social-Health Care teams, to encourage the development of new protocols for coordinated Social-Health Care and to evaluate the experience of implementation of this tool. It is achieved through the development of information and training materials, briefings in all Basque Social and Health System, training sessions, implementation, support to professionals and Tool implementation – Setting-up coordinated Social-Health Care teams.
Impact on the health system’s capacity and resilience (e.g., health and care efficiency, continuity of care)
The development of interoperability is fundamental for inter-institutional and social and health team work.
