Grounded in the extensive experience of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA), SCIROCCO aims to provide a validated and tested tool that facilitates the successful scaling-up and transfer of good practices in integrated care across European regions. SCIROCCO will specifically focus on successful local interventions (good practices) that have demonstrated significant benefits to citizens, communities and service providers and that feature moving towards community-based, integrated health and social care service models.SCIROCCO will deliver an assessment of the contextual requirements necessary for the scale-up of these interventions and the capacity of regions to adopt them. SCIROCCO will also compare the readiness of five European regions to adopt good practices in the provision of integrated care, to demonstrate the effectiveness of the tool in practice.SCIROCCO explores how matching regions that have complementary strengths and weaknesses can deliver two major benefits: a strong basis for successful twinning and coaching that facilitates shared learning and effective knowledge transfer; and practical support for the scaling-up of good practices that promote active and healthy ageing and participation in the community.Finally, SCIROCCO captures the lessons learned from twinning, coaching and knowledge transfer activities as a significant contribution to supporting the broader implementation and scaling-up of local integrated care interventions in Europe, in line with the European Commission's 'European Scaling-up Strategy in Active & Healthy Ageing'.

General Objective The proposal is promoted by a network of EIP-AHA Italian Reference Sites with the intent to validate and standardize approaches on frailty and multimorbidity by building on the instruments developed with the European Commission Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing. Key-partners of the project are mainly EIP-AHA Reference Sites (and AG Coordinators: A1, A3, B3), representing countries from the northern, southern and eastern part of Europe. Methods and Means Proposed actions will support the development, validation and experimentation of a model to improve the detection, prevention and care of frailty and management of multimorbidity in EU countries, providing partners with different approaches to care from which to adopt/adapt their own systems/services. The model will be experimented in selected RS. It will support the development of innovative tools for the prediction of frailty and multimorbidity by level of care, focussing on community based prevention and avoidable hospitalization. It will offer the EC and the MS with instruments for the potential replication of the model/good practices through the EIP-AHA initiative. The involvement of European networks (EUREGHA), and of the International Scientific Research Networks in the field of frailty and disability (IAGG-GARN), will grant necessary scientific support and advocacy for a real EU and international value.Project’s Main Outcomes• A shared model of references on frailty and multimorbidity.• A tool kit for the prediction of frailty and multimorbidity by level of care: Primary care: easy to use tool to assess risks of frailty through the physical function (slow gait speed, others); tools to support the design of information systems and care pathways for the management of chronic diseases. Secondary-tertiary level: identification of methods and instruments to predict multimorbidity. Other tools: instruments for professional’s skills improvement and analysis of costs.
