Room 103 b
This session will introduce the Future-Proofing Healthcare Sustainability Index, which gives a unique view of the current status of the 28 European healthcare systems based on the largest data set of its kind. The Index found that Northern European countries such as Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Finland and Germany are currently leading the way with the most sustainable healthcare systems, but also highlights major regional disparities across Europe with Eastern European countries coming in at the lower end of the index. The objective of the Future-Proofing Healthcare initiative is to promote accessibility of data for policy-making. As long term sustainability can only be achieved when decisions are driven by evidence, this panel will discuss how data can be used to future-proof healthcare across Europe.
