Budget 2019 provided €20 million for the establishment of a new ring-fenced Sláintecare Integration Fund to test and scale how services can best be delivered.
The Sláintecare Integration Fund is seeking submissions with a focus on prevention, community care and integration of care across all health and social care settings.
Submitted projects must be in a position to be implemented in 2019.
Projects that can demonstrate partnership working and that are co-funded will be particularly welcomed.
Applications are invited for projects that will;
- Promote the engagement and empowerment of citizens in the care of their own health
- Scale and share examples of best practice and processes for chronic disease management and care of older people
- Encourage innovations in the shift of care to the community or provide hospital avoidance measures
Applications should be submitted as an attached document in email to PitchToSlaintecare@health.gov.ie by 1pm on the 18th April 2019.
