Humanity's Moment for Reimagining Health & Care

COVID-19 prompted European nations to prioritise digital health transformation as a key part of strategies to rebuild damaged economies. Digital solutions, such as telehealth, are also proving invaluable in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the war in Ukraine. Savvy governments are increasingly rethinking health as an investment and recognising that robust healthcare systems are essential to recovery and growth post-pandemic. With an urgent need to save lives and livelihoods, healthcare leaders now realise it is time to build stronger, more sustainable healthcare systems, driven by the latest data and technology. This session will capture the scale of ambition for digital health transformation, with leaders from across Europe and beyond sharing plans to advance digital maturity. They will discuss how the need to avert future health crises in Europe is leading to new funding opportunities, momentum for innovation, and greater openness to data sharing and collaboration.

 Learning objectives:

  • Understand the need for digital solutions to be prioritised in the face of humanitarian and health crises in Europe to aid recovery and growth.
  • Examine the latest date and technology that can drive sustainable healthcare systems and digital transformation.  
  • Learn the strategies being used throughout Europe and beyond to advance digital maturity of healthcare systems.
