Supporting you to
better manage multiple health conditions
We provide collaboration, care coordination and follow-up tools for patients, caregivers and clinicians to achieve high quality integrated care and better health outcomes
As people are living longer, they are more likely to be living with different ongoing medical problems.
Finding the best way to deal with this ‘multimorbidity’ can be challenging for patients, caregivers and clinicians.
C3-Cloud is developing innovative ICT systems to boost collaboration, care coordination and follow-up with the help of an online platform.

of people aged 65 and over are estimated to live with multimorbidity (1)
- 2015 9% 9%
- 2035 17% 17%
Multimorbidity with 4+ diseases is expected to almost double in 20 years time (2)
Challenges C3-Cloud is tackling
More and more people are living with different ongoing medical problems
Health professionals experience difficulties in applying ideal multimedications reviews in daily practice
The patient-centred approach combines self-management with well-integrated professional support
Personalised care planning
It is crucial to align and coordinate multidisease care across growing multidisciplinary care teams and care settings
225 patients and several informal caregivers,
60 multidisciplinary healthcare professional teams,
in three countries
have used the C3-Cloud solutions

C3-Cloud is a research project that aims to develop personalised care plans for complex multimorbid patients, supported by ICT tools and managed by a coordinated multidisciplinary team. We promote integrated care and the involvement of the patient and/or caregiver. C3-Cloud is funded by the European Union. Three pilots are focussing on four high prevalence long term conditions: diabetes, heart failure, kidney failure and depression. More info
