BSA, which was recognised as an EIP on AHA reference site in 2016 for its innovation in active and healthy ageing, had already developed three use cases with the old version of MAFEIP (Mastermind cCVC, Mastermind cCBT, and BeyondSilos). Now, the organisation, in conjunction to Smart Homes, has used MAFEIP to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of Do CHANGE, a project that had the aim to empower individuals with high blood pressure (HT), ischemic heart disease (CAD) or heart failure (HF) chronic conditions with tools and services to optimally monitor and manage their real-time health condition and disease.
The analysis performed using MAFEIP includes BSA and two other pilot sites: Elisabeth TweeSteden Ziekenhuis (The Netherlands) and the Buddhist Tzu-Chi Dalin General Hospital (Taiwan). These organisations have been the first ones able to test some of the improvements included in the new version of MAFEIP. For instance, the Do CHANGE analysis uses the 5 health states Markov model (baseline, advanced disease stage 1, advanced disease stage 2, advanced disease stage 3, and death), while before the tool only allowed for 3 health states. Moreover, the use case has taken advantage of the functionalities to establish the initial distribution of the population among the health states (in the old version the whole population had to start at the baseline health state), and to limit the period of the analysis (they have chosen a time span of four years).
