CONCEPT Project

CONCEPT is a coordinated research initiative made up of five projects within the framework of REDISSEC – Spanish Research Network on Health Services and Chronic Diseases; and RICAPPS – Research Network on Chronicity, Primary Care and Health Promotion.

The objective of CONCEPT is to study the effectiveness and efficiency of chronic care in the Spanish National Health System: a multi-cohort study with real-world data.

Specifically, how care is provided to patients with diabetes CONCEPT-DIABETES, to long-term breast cancer survivors CONCEPT-SURBCAN, to patients with heart failure CONCEPT-Heart Failure and to those with acute ischaemic stroke CONCEPT-STROKE.

CONCEPT projects will address research questions related to the effectiveness and efficiency (i.e. appropriateness, quality or health outcomes and costs) with which chronic care is provided in the context of the Spanish healthcare system.

CONCEPT comprises five sub-projects, four analysing the care provided for four highly prevalent chronic diseases and a fifth CONCEPT-COST, focusing on economic analyses of all other projects. The CONCEPT projects are based on the actual exposure of patients when they come into contact with different healthcare providers and the consequences of this exposure, using real-world data (RWD) as the research substrate.

SUBPROJECTS

CONCEPT-STROKE

The care received by patients with acute ischaemic stroke is analysed.
In stroke care, the aim is to show the relevance of care pathways on health outcomes and the efficiency of stroke care.

CONCEPT-DIABETES

The care received by patients with diabetes is analysed.
It evaluates the effectiveness of clinical practice and quality improvement strategies at patient, health care provider and health system level on process and health outcomes of patients with type 2 diabetes using process mining.

CONCEPT-SURBCAN

It analyses the care received by female breast cancer survivors.
It evaluates the effectiveness and efficiency of health care in long-term breast cancer survivors and identifies the preferences and unmet needs of patients and professionals to improve the care provided during breast cancer survivorship.

CONCEPT-Heart Failure

It analyses the care received by patients with heart failure.
It analyses the effectiveness of the care process experienced by patients with Heart Failure (HF) in three health systems in the country.

CONCEPT-COST

Economic analysis of the CONCEPT projects. Complements the results produced by each CONCEPT clinical cohort, with a comprehensive approach to economic analysis based on RWD, including costs incurred, avoidable costs and the evaluation of the efficiency of the care pathways identified.
