This chapter describes how the Professionals and Citizens Network for Integrated Care (PICNIC) project was conducted in order to meet its objectives in preparing the regional healthcare providers to implement the next generation, comprehensive, user-friendly, secure healthcare network for patient centred care, and through it contribute to the de-fragmentation of the European market for health telematics. It describes the methodology followed in order to reach certain project results, starting from the selection of common documentation tools and methods, to the delivery of a new model for providing services, assessment plans, and a number of open source software components running on a number of diverse pilots throughout Europe in line with the overall PICNIC architecture.
