The main objective of METEOR is three-fold. First, we will enhance knowledge on the determinants of job retention, as well as on the already successfully implemented interventions and retention policies from literature. Second, we will identify and analyse the main determinants related to retention across the 8 participating hospitals in 4 European countries (Belgium, The Netherlands, Poland, and Italy). Third, we will develop policy recommendations through continuous stakeholder engagement. The knowledge acquired through these steps will be iteratively integrated into an accessible and searchable online toolbox.
Activities: (1) Conduct two systematic reviews, one on the determinants of job retention and one on retention interventions; (2) Conduct a document analysis of micro-level policy documents on retention in the 8 hospitals; (3) Develop a questionnaire to assess job retention in the 8 hospitals; (4) Apply the developed questionnaire to collect and analyse data on the main determinants related to job retention in a representative sample of healthcare workers; (4) Organize workshops with key stakeholders to develop policy recommendations; (5) Develop an online toolbox.
Persons benefiting from the project: We will undoubtedly have an impact on the target stakeholders in the participating hospitals (e.g. 930 physicians and 1300 nurses in the Local Health Facility of Agrigento), but we will potentially also affect stakeholders in the consortium countries and beyond.
Expected results: (1) Increase knowledge on retention determinants, interventions and policies; (2) Develop policy recommendations with key stakeholders; (4) Communicate and disseminate our knowledge through an online toolbox.
Outputs to be produced: (1) Two systematic reviews; (2) Analysis of micro-level retention policies; (2) Analysis of retention determinants in the hospitals; (3) List of policy recommendations; (4) Online toolbox.

Topic: 3.3 Support the sustainability of the health workforce by developing effective health workforce forecasting and planning in terms of numbers, gender equality, scope of practice and the extent to which training matches the requisite skills, including the ability to make use of new information systems and other advanced technologies, monitor mobility (within the Union) and migration of health professionals, foster efficient recruitment and retention strategies and capacity development, taking due account of issues of dependency and population ageing.

The overall ambition from EU Member States (MS) is to better include eHealth into health policy and better align eHealth investments to health needs. A central aspect is the transferability of health data across borders of MS and therefore the organizational, technical, semantic and legal interoperability. In order to ensure progress and to bridge the gaps between the governance, strategy and operational levels, a dedicated mechanism for eHealth at EU level has been established: The eHealth Network was formally established in 2011 through the Commission’s Implementing Decision 2011/890/EU based on Art. 14.3 Directive 2011/24/EU and represents the highest decision-making body at EU political level. At a European level there is a strong need to maintain this mechanism and to ensure further common political leadership and ongoing integration of eHealth into health policy in order to continue developing eHealth services responding to health systems‘ needs and health objectives. This is the framework for the Joint Action to support the eHealth Network which is led by the MS and co-financed by the European Commission through a Joint Action.

Hence, the main objective of the Joint Action is to act as the main preparatory body for the eHealth Network. By doing so, the Joint Action aims to develop political recommendations and instruments for cooperation in the four specific priority areas that are specified in the eHealth Network's multi-annual work plan 2015-2018 and that were adopted by the eHealth Network in May 2014:
(1) Interoperability and standardisation,
(2) monitoring and assessment of implementation,
(3) exchange of knowledge and
(4) global cooperation and positioning.

Thereby, the Joint Action functions also as a platform for operational and strategic cooperation between MS on eHealth including their relationship with eHealth Stakeholder Groups and Standardization Organizations.

Topic: 3.2 Promote the voluntary uptake of health innovation and e-Health by increasing the interoperability of patient registries and other e-Health solutions; support cooperation on e-Health in the Union, in particular on registries, and its uptake by health professionals. This will serve the voluntary network on e-Health set up by Directive 2011/24/EU.

BRIDGE Health (BRidging Information and Data Generation for Evidence-based Health Policy and Research) aims to create European health information (EU-HI) and data generation networks covering major EU health policy areas. The network uses comprehensive experience and assures a knowledge transfer from past health and research frameworks.

The aim is to work towards a comprehensive, integrated and sustainable EU-HI supporting evidence-based health policy and research for the EU and Member States by providing blueprints and/or concepts of building blocks for a future EU-HI research infrastructure consortium (ERIC-HI).

The project bridges key EU projects in domains of population and health system monitoring and indicator development, health examination surveys, environment and health, population injury and disease registries, clinical and administrative health data collection systems and methods of health system monitoring and evaluation.

The project aims to:
1) enhance the transferability of health information and data for policy and improve the utility and use of data and indicators for stakeholders in policy making, public health surveillance and health care;
2) reduce health information inequality within the EU and within MS;
3) develop a blueprint for a sustainable and integrated EU Health information system by developing common methods for a) standardising the collection and exchange of health information within and between domains, between MS, including e-health platforms; b) ensuring data quality, including procedures for internal and external validation of health indicators; c) undertaking priority setting exercises for health information, d) addressing ethical and legal issues associated with the collection and use of health data within MS and the EU.

Coordination, dialogue and interaction with DG-SANCO, the Expert Group on Health Information, Eurostat, DG Research and other DGs ensure the sustainability of the work and bridges to a future ERIC-HI.
