Several organisations are currently trying MAFEIP 2.0, the new version of the tool launched this year. MAFEIP has been enriched with new functionalities, based on the feedback received from users during the study to “Support Services for the Management and Utilization of Monitoring and Assessment of the EIP-MAFEIP Tool”, conducted by Open Evidence and empirica. These new functionalities enable a more accurate estimation of the utility and cost-effectiveness of interventions. For instance, the new version allows users to choose a model with 3, 4 or 5 Markov model health states, and to specify the starting distribution of the target population between the health states.
Open Evidence is in charge of supporting the development of new cases within the project We4AHA, the Coordination and Support Action aimed at advancing the effective, large-scale uptake and impact of Digital Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA). In this context, a call was launched last June to invite organisations to test the new version of the tool. A total of 21 proposals were received. Now, Open Evidence is holding meetings with some of the interested organisations to help them use MAFEIP to evaluate their interventions. As a result, it is expected that several new MAFEIP use cases will be developed in the coming months, which will be published on the MAFEIP website.
Beyond this call, the use of the MAFEIP tool is open to any interested organisation or individual. In fact, MAFEIP Users’ Community (MUC) has been growing during the last months, grouping an increasing number of organisations across Europe and reaching almost 200 members. Open Evidence is also in charge of answering to requests for access details and to other queries related to MAFEIP received via firstname.lastname@example.org.
