SELFIE (Sustainable intEgrated care modeLs for multi-morbidity: delivery, FInancing and performancE) is a Horizon2020 EU project that will contribute to the current state of knowledge and provide applicable policy advice on integrated care for persons with multi-morbidity. Currently, over 50 million persons in Europe have more than one chronic disease, and this number will increase dramatically in the near future. As a consequence, health care spending will increase to a staggering 20% of GDP.
Multi-morbidity will become the number one threat to population health and economic sustainability of health care systems. New models of care for multi-morbid persons are urgently needed. SELFIE aims to improve person-centered care for persons with multi-morbidity by proposing evidence-based, economically sustainable, integrated chronic care models that stimulate cooperation across health and social care sectors. It also aims to propose appropriate financing/payment schemes that support the implementation of these models.

MAIN STRANDS OF RESEARCH
1. Cross-country comparative descriptive research of Integrated Chronic Care (ICC) models for persons with multi-morbidity, including a list of financial/payment schemes that support the implementation of these models;
2. Intra-country evaluations of financing/payment schemes of ICC models, and Multi-Criteria Decision Analyses (MCDA) of the 16 most promising ICC models;
3. Evidence synthesis, and development of implementation strategies that match the different healthcare systems in Europe, and support the transferability of the ICC models also to Central and Eastern European Countries.

DELIVERABLES
• Taxonomy of most promising ICC models for multi-morbid persons. This includes a toolkit of interventions to develop ICC models and embed them in specific health and social care systems.
• List of financing/payment schemes with adequate incentives to support the implementation of ICC for multi-morbidity.
• Price-setting document explaining the technicalities of deriving a price for ICC models.
• Performance assessment tool to monitor the goal achievement of ICC models, this tool will include new indicators that specifically address the quality of care for persons with multi-morbidity.
• Strategies for implementation and change management.
