Thank you for attending the 2019 event.
We look forward to seeing you again 26-28 May 2020!
The shift from acute to community-based care is a strategic goal for most health systems around Europe. As a key enabler for this shift, creating and nurturing a digital workplace is not simply a question of technology. It requires professional development and clinical engagement, the integration of primary and secondary care as well as the integration of health and social services, along with a real alignment of incentives for all health and care stakeholders. Are these goals realistic when resources are limited, budgets getting tighter, health systems running on the verge of bankruptcy and health professionals practicing on the verge of burnout? How can we promote a digital transformation when care provision, IT investments and human resources are only examples of the scarcity taht is becoming increasingly visible and difficult to manage? This session, in two parts, will provide a closer look at the challenges associated with the mandate to move care to the community while continuing to provide high-quality care in the era of "doing more with less", and highlight innovative approaches and initiatives to ensure users and care providers don´t become casualties of these financial realities.
