    Abstract

    Advancing Care Coordination and Telehealth Deployment (ACT) is a European Union (EU) project, completed last October, which has developed a framework for evaluating and improving pioneering health care programs regarding coordinating care and telehealth (CC & TH) across specific EU regions. In this paper we present the key design decisions of the project's data model and the challenges faced. We focus on the definition of the multi-dimensional indicators in order to overcome data incompleteness and heterogeneity issues. Finally, we also suggest a graph based approach that could facilitate development of such data models in similar projects.
