“Empowering and equipping Europeans with health information for active personal health management and adherence to treatment”

Gravitate Health
is an integrated digital health information project

The Gravitate Health mission is to equip and empower citizens with digital information tools that make them confident, active, and responsive in their patient journey, specifically encouraging safe use of medicines for better health outcomes and quality of life.

Our vision

engagement of citizens in their own health can only be achieved with access to actionable, understandable, relevant, reliable and evidence-based information that meets their specific needs, health context, and literacy level.

Our ambition

to provide a key piece to advance this vision: the Gravitate Lens (G-Lens), which focuses (but does not conceal or filter) approved electronic product information (ePI) content, and offers a route for patients to access trustworthy, up-to-date information that better meet their individual needs.

Gravitate Health aims to

1  develop  an integrated, digital, user-centric health information solution with two-way communication for the public so that health information from a set of trusted sources is available and understandable (such as package leaflet content) and EHR-IPS (International Patient Summary).

 

2 – promote adherence to treatment, safer use of medication (Pharmacovigilance), better health outcomes and quality of life through improved availability and understanding of health information from trusted sources & minimize risk through optimal use of available health information.

Gravitate Health will

  • an open source digital platform supporting G-Lens functionally, demonstrated in a number of testing scenarios, and
  • a White Paper with recommendations on realistic strategies to strengthen access, understanding and future use of digital services like ePIs as a tool for Risk Minimization.

 

Gravitate Health services and G-lens will be developed and tested within the project, using an evaluation framework to test the efficiency, efficacy, and safety of Gravitate-Health services.
