About the event
Healthcare organizations are seeking to provide care in better ways using different medical, organisational and structural approaches; often, these are facilitated and sometimes induced by digital technologies. Significant changes have been achieved despite tightening budget constraints and increasing operational demand. A range of effects can be observed at several levels and with intended and unintended benefits and consequences. Examples include changes in preventative strategies, consultative methods and diagnostic procedures; higher levels of patient engagement and involvement; remote advisory and treatment systems, for medical team collaboration and home-based patients; keeping track of patient history and easier access to data for improved wellbeing and quality of life of the patient.
Additionally, during 2020, the world had to face a global health crisis, the COVID-19 related pandemic. The COVID crisis pushed even more healthcare ecosystems worldwide to rethink their glocal strategies, moving from resilience to anti-fragility. Healthcare ecosystems involve a wide number of actors (patients, doctors, mental health professionals, nurses, companies and government bodies, suppliers etc..) who, as active parts of the ecosystem are pressed from the resolution of global challenges, generating novel knowledge with external actors, like universities, research centres, industries, policymakers, NGOs and public institutions among others.
