What is Victrix SocSan?
Victrix Socsan offers IT solutions to create synergies between health and social care systems. We promote a new model of health and social care delivery based on extracting and analyzing data from different health and social care sources, to provide low-cost yet highly effective proactive interventions for chronic disease management, elderly care and wellbeing.
We promote a radical new model of health and social care delivery, leveraging existing IT assets and skill sets.
Victrix uses the flexibility and agility of a dynamic small company, combined with deep experience of large corporate structures, to offer the highest possible quality standards at reasonable cost for coordinated health and social care.
Better coordinate care services, both horizontal coordination between health and social care, and vertical coordination between different stakeholders at different levels of the care process. This gives much higher quality, joined-up care, at reduced cost.
Take a modular approach, selecting support priorities such as care for the elderly, or addressing and preventing main chronic diseases (such as chronic heart failure, diabetes, and COPD, as well as comorbitidies).
PROACTIVE AND PREVENTIVE
Use the new shared health and social care data to create workflows which generate proactive and preventive care solutions for chronic disease patients and the elderly. This helps control the increasing demands on health and social care systems.
RELIABLE AND EFFICIENT
Offer flexibility, integration and scalability, ensuring that VICTRIX's solutions coexist with current platforms and can adapt to different service models
Share key selected information throughout the whole care pathway, giving health and social care providers powerful tools to contain care costs within tight budgets.
Implement technologies and service design that put the end-user at the centre of the care process. The result is higher patient satisfaction and improved outcomes of the care process.
Our objective is to closely collaborate with private and public health and social care providers to pave the road for better, more sustainable and more efficient care services that improve quality of life for citizens, at reduced cost.
According to the European Commission, ageing is one of the greatest social and economic challenges of the 21st century for European societies. There were 93 million people aged +65 in Europe (18.5% of the total population) at 2014 and it’s predicted by 2020 around 25% of the EU population will be over 65 years, 126 million people. The Europe 2020 strategy for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth emphasises the need to promote active ageing policies.
Both in the health and social care sector, it has been widely accepted that both systems, as a result of the ageing population, are facing huge challenges. Ageing population results in a higher prevalence of long-term conditions, that already represent most of health care expenditure nowadays. Thus, the current health and social care systems, that have grown separately over the years, face the prospect of looking after a wider and older population, with the associated increasing cost.
The solution to these challenges lies in redefining current care pathways. Care pathways have to move from a reactive approach to a preventive and containment model, based on the coordination of every stakeholder in the care process and on patient training and empowerment, even amongst the elderly.
There is no standard definition or understanding of ‘coordinated care’ (often referred also as 'integrated care'), but we can consider it as a worldwide trend and key priority for many governments and private health services, some examples:
- World Health Organization (Framework on integrated people-centred health services 2016-2026).
- European Union (Europe 2020 strategy: European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing. Action Group B3: Integrated Care).
- United Kingdom (NHS Five Year Forward View or Northern Ireland's System, not Structures report).
- Spain (White paper for health and social care coordination).
- Australia (NSW State Health Plan: Towards 2021).
The challenge of of creating a new health and social care coordianated model, and the use of IT tools such as Telehealth and Telecare, is one of the goals on these health programs.
