CUP2000 is the exclusive developer and provider of the Metropolitan and Web CUP - Unified Booking System - and of the electronic archiving systems for clinical records in hospitals. The Company also runs the largest Call-Contact Centre of the public Italian health system. CUP 2000 has participated in numerous European and international projects promoting the innovation of health services geared towards individuals by means of advanced applications of ICT. Through the instruments of Information and Communication Technology, CUP 2000 proposes to create a health care network (called net e-Care: www.cup2000.it/e-care/index.htm) that allows direct communication between first and second level health care structures, general practitioners, pharmacies, unified booking centres and consumers.http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/activities/health/research/projects/index_en.htm
As organisation operating in the health sector CUP2000 has vast experience in planning, developing, and running access systems for health care structures on the urban scale. The net e-Care allows direct communication between first and second level health care structures, general practitioners, pharmacies, unified booking centres and consumers, thereby: supporting organised access to health care services by citizens; directing persons to the appropriate health care centre; improving the standard of quality; limiting the costs of running health care and social assistance systems. Thanks to the participation in the OLDES project CUP2000 aims at developing new ways and using new technologies for the provision of its e-Care services. This is perfectly in line with its mission and its strategy in the sector and in particular it has the purpose to reinforce the range of services offered by its contact centres for the local administrations and the health care companies of many Italian cities. CUP2000 is the leading partner in WP2 OLDES Platform Design and will guide the exploitation activities as it is a society belonging to the technical and management supply domain with the mission to promote innovative ways to offer caring services for elderly. At Italian national level CUP2000 will exploit in a first stage its internal market consisting in the 17 Local Health Authorities located in the Emilia Romagna Region and the Municipalities like Bologna. They are currently active in large-scale experiments of projects that can reshape the ways to offer health and social care reducing at the same time among others costs and waiting lists. Also the hypothesis to make the platform available to services providers will be adequately studied. The company will play also a key role in the planning and implementation of the trial in Bologna.
