Short description
“TreC+ (The Trentino Citizens’ Electronic Health Record): what it is, how to access it, services offered and future developments” is the title of the training course proposed by the Trentino University of the Third Age and Free time – Franco Demarchi Foundation, in collaboration with the Department of health, social policies, disability and family of the Autonomous Province of Trento, to its members. A collaboration between the Province and the University of Third Age and Free Time which aims to ensure the dissemination of necessary skills that allow citizens, especially elderly people, to interact with digital tools. In the new 2022-2023 programming period, this initiative proposes, 21 meetings on digital health and on the local TreC+ platform. These meetings are held in different areas of the territory. During these training courses, lasting two hours each, the representatives of the Autonomous Province of Trento illustrate, after an initial presentation of the reference context, the governance and development model of digital healthcare in the province of Trento also including a reference to the process of reorganization of the territorial health services in progress. The TreC+ digital health ecosystem is then presented in detail (what it is, services offered and future developments), the initiatives in progress, a particular reference to telemedicine and the digital health interventions envisaged by the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, also inviting the participants to install the application on their mobile phones. The TreC+ platform is available to all citizens of Trentino, it allows access to personal Electronic Health Record, and therefore personal health data and documents, access to online health services, including telemedicine. In this model it is crucial to guarantee the dissemination of the skills necessary to interact with digital tools both for operators and for citizens, with particular attention to the elderly population.
Contribution to citizen empowerment

Also,these classes are an example of how to help (elderly) people to develop digital skills.
