This international conference aims to provide solutions to current health challenges facing European health systems on the following themes: Chronic Disease Management, eHealth and Sustainable Development.
Chronic Disease Management (19 May 2010)
Chronic or long term conditions can represent up to 70% of a nation's total health expenditure. With aging populations and an increasing number of chronic patients, European health systems are embracing chronic care and population health management as promising opportunities to improve clinical and financial outcomes.
Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, Minister of Health and Sports in France, will preside a Ministerial Roundtable on "Preparing health systems for the future: Integrating chronic disease management and population health management in national reforms".
eHealth (20 May 2010)
While healthcare expenditures increase every year, eHealth represents one hope to improve at the same time clinical and financial outcomes. This Summit focuses on the use of ICTs and mobile technologies to integrate care and implement collaborative patient-centred care.
Sustainable Development (21 May 2010)
Health establishments are important consumers of resources and major producers of wastes. From vision to performance measurement, this Summit builds a business case, explores successful initiatives in sustainable development and provides a platform for sharing visions for the sustainable health systems of the future.
