The team about Generation Care: ‘We map any intervention according to how it helps all members of society become either healthier, more self-sufficient, or both, thereby providing a common objective for researchers, practitioners, and key stakeholders such as health insurance companies.
Healthcare is an individual responsibility and, first and foremost, one of society at large. The Generation Care framework assists in finding countermeasures to forces that inhibit personal health and self-sufficiency, such as inequality and social isolation. It addresses the impact of medical interventional and preventative solutions, as well as social policies – from an app for medication reminders to Convergence flagships and from community healthcare service programs to educational reform.
We envision our framework to be a digital instrument used to monitor the status of individuals, communities, and society, promoting a culture of informal care. There are no quick solutions; it takes a generation to build a healthy and caring society. Generation Care leads the way towards a new health mindset.’
