About HSMonitor

HSMonitor is a pre-commercial procurement (PCP) project investing in Research and Development (R&D) services towards innovative ICT-enabled monitoring solutions to improve health status and optimise hypertension care.

Five healthcare providers from four countries are engaged in the procurement, catering to a combined population of over 96 million people, of which over 31 million have hypertension.

The envisaged solutions are developed in competitive phases by industry players (suppliers).

Phase I - Concept design, solution architecture and technical specifications

  • Develop a detailed specification of the proposed solution which addresses fit with technical, economic and organizational requirements of the suppliers.
  • Expected output: detailed report describing the solution and a detailed plan for the prototyping and testing activities in Phases II & III.
  • 3 months
  • Maximum phase total budget: €693,000
  • The offers are ranked according to quality – price ratio
  • For Phase I a minimum of 5 contracts is expected to be awarded. Contracts are awarded until the remaining budget for that phase is insufficient to fund the next best tender

Phase II - Development of prototype systems in two iterations

  • Develop the most promising ideas into well-defined prototypes
  • Expected output:
    • Prototype specification
    • Prototype demonstration
    • Plan for development of a limited volume of solutions for field-testing
    • Updated cost/benefits forecast including a preliminary business plan
  • 8 months
  • Maximum phase total budget: €1,386,000
  • The offers are ranked according to quality – price ratio
  • For Phase II a minimum of 3 contracts is expected to be awarded. Contracts are awarded until the remaining budget for that phase is insufficient to fund the next best tender

Phase III - Development and testing of pilot systems

  • Implement and assess the prototypes under real world conditions
  • Expected output:
    • Implementation in the 5 testing sites
    • Overall assessment and success verification
    • Updated cost/benefits forecast, including a preliminary business plan
  • 16 months
  • Maximum phase total budget: €2,541,000
  • For Phase III a minimum of 2 contracts is expected to be awarded.
