Several organisations are currently trying MAFEIP 2.0, the new version of the tool launched this year. Based on the feedback received from users, MAFEIP has been enriched with new functionalities that enable a more accurate estimation of the utility and cost-effectiveness of interventions. For instance, the new version allows users to choose a model with 3, 4 or 5 Markov model health states, and to specify the starting distribution of the target population between the health states.
A specific call was launched last June to invite organisations to test the new version of the tool. A total of 21 proposals were received. Now, the MAFEIP team is holding meetings with some of the interested organisations to help them use MAFEIP to evaluate their interventions. As a result, it is expected that several new MAFEIP use cases will be developed in the coming months. When ready, they will be published on this website. This activity is supported by We4AHA , the Coordination and Support Action aimed at advancing the effective, large-scale uptake and impact of Digital Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing.
Beyond this call, the use of the MAFEIP tool is open to any interested organisation or individual. All those willing to try the tool can just ask for a username at firstname.lastname@example.org. In fact, MAFEIP Users’ Community (MUC) has been growing during the last months, grouping an increasing number of organisations across Europe and reaching almost 200 members.
