II.4)Short description of nature and quantity or value of supplies or services:
ASP Catanzaro, has planned the completion of a tender to procure Advanced services enhanced by digital technologies for elderly people in the ‘Chiaravalle’ House of Health. The aim of the tender(s) is the strengthening of the functionalities of the House of Health (an innovative form of organization of primary care recently introduced in Italy) through the development of solutions and services aiming at promoting patient empowerment, proactive medicine and coordination between care settings — including the home of the patient, in line with the approach of Integrated Care. Moreover the procurer aims at developing and implementing a monitoring and evaluation system in order to assure both the appropriateness of the individual care process and the activation of processes of continuous improvement of the services provided by the House of Health as a whole.
Through this tender ASP Catanzaro intends to test and validate the European Specification Template (EST), a flexible template for procurement, which can be used across Europe to promote cost-effective commissioning of health services, enabling the implementation of innovative care models for elderly people through the support of digital technologies. The EST is a key output of the STOPandGO project in which ASP Catanzaro is involved.
The EST is available, in English, at the following link:
STOP and GO (Sustainable Technology for Older People — Get Organised) is a Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) project co-founded by the European Commission under CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 ( Its purposes are:
— To develop the European Specification Template, i.e. a set of European guidelines to define and manage public tenders for the procurement of health and social services enhanced by digital technologies that will enable the implementation of innovative care models for elderly people;
— To ensure that commissioned services are innovative, or based on existing technologies that are to be utilized in a new and innovative way;
— To test and evaluate the procurement process through a set of co-founded tenders launched by seven procurers in four different countries (Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Netherlands);
— To produce a final report and a release of the European Specification Template (EST) usable in any European Regions to support the strategies described in the ‘Strategic Implementation Plan’ of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIPonAHA).
In order to come to a complete definition of the tender, in line with the requirements of the PPI instrument, an Open Market Consultation (OMC) is held prior to the actual tender processes taking place. The purpose of the OMC is:
— to inform about the tender process, in order to achieve the widest participation of interested parties;
— to learn about quality and technical characteristics of the proposed solutions on the market;
— to allow interested parties to provide comments and suggestions considered useful for the contracting authority in preparation of the tender.
Please note that this consultation does not oblige ASP Catanzaro to award the contracts proposed, nor sets limits to the content of the tender.
The instructions regarding the completion of the above OMC are available at the following web address:
