The Fundación de Gestión Sanitaria del Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (hereinafter, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Fundación de Gestión Sanitaria or FGS), has planned the completion of a tender to procure comprehensive treatment, enhanced by digital technologies, of patients with automated implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD) including cardiac resynchronization for patients in the area of influence of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau and associate centres.
The ultimate aim of the procurement is to ensure maximum efficiency in the care process of patients through the use of digital technologies, patients empowerment and the coordination and joint responsibility between the FGS and the contractor, during the whole treatment life cycle.
For this reason, the contract aim includes all aspects of the care process, including but not considering this a fixed list:
— Material provision and management,
— Technical assistance in the care procedure of patients,
— Management of incidences and complications related to the AICD,
— Home monitoring services,
— Change management including training for professionals (nursing staff and doctors), patients and relatives,
— ICT solution as support to monitor patient in hospital settings and remotely.
Moreover, as digital technologies are the basis for the improvement of the procedure, the awarded bidder must guarantee the technological renovation and incorporation of new technologies that may arise during the duration of contract.
Through this tender FGS 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. The EST is available, in English, at the following link:
STOPandGO (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 in 4 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 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 FGS 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 until 28.12.2015 at the following web address:
