Public Procurement of Innovation Projects
The Medigenomics Project aims to design, build, and develop a centralised, comprehensive, and expert service that combines the whole process of studying an individual’s genome on a single platform, in a simple and automated way, and with continuous updating in real time, thus improving the diagnostic tools for genetic diseases and improving the information available to the administrations.
The Infobanco Project aims to develop an innovative regional health data network architecture, conceived as a standardised health data repository, combining information generated from different sources, clinical, administrative as in research systems, thus improving knowledge acquisition and clinical decision making.
Finally, the Integra-Cam project proposes an innovative technological ecosystem that will allow home monitoring and tracking of the intrinsic capacity of the elderly, thus improving the quality of life of the elderly and their environment, contributing to improving the sustainability of the healthcare system and integrating all the relevant actors in the integral care of the elderly: patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals (Primary Care and Specialised Hospital Care).
The period for receiving proposals for the Preliminary Market Consultation of the Public Procurement of Innovation projects of the Community of Madrid’s Regional Ministry of Health, intended for market operators in the social and healthcare sector, research centres, and other stakeholders with expertise in the topics of the projects, has ended. A total of 78 innovative proposals were received for the three projects. Participation in the Consultation is evidence of the great interest of the industry in addressing the challenges of the Community of Madrid’s Regional Ministry of Health through innovation, ensuring turnout and competition in future bids for Public Procurement of Innovation, which are expected to be awarded in the last quarter of the year.
The results of the consultation will soon be reported through the Conclusion Reports of each of the projects, which will be published on the following websites this website and on the Public Procurement Portal of the Community of Madrid.
Public Procurement of Innovation in the Community of Madrid through FID-3
Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) is an administrative action to promote innovation aimed at fostering the development of new innovative markets from the demand side of the public administrator, through the instrument of public procurement. This instrument seeks both to improve public services through the incorporation of innovative goods or services and to promote business innovation, using the public market as a launch or reference customer.
The three projects are the result of the agreement signed between the Regional Ministry of Health of the Community of Madrid and the Ministry of Science and Innovation within the framework of the Line for the Promotion of Innovation from Demand (third call or FID -3) to promote Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) in the health service. Each project has a budget of €2.5 million (€7.5 million in total) for activities corresponding to Phase I of the project (R&D&I Phase), co-financed in equal parts by the Community of Madrid and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
This budget will be distributed in two major items: Public Procurement of Innovation bids, to which at least 80% of the budget must be allocated, and support actions, which will receive a maximum of 20% of the total. More information on the three projects is available at our website.
