Forum for Health Policy is a forum for dialogue. We organize workshops, seminars, round table talks and other meetings to enhance interaction and dialogue between decision makers, researchers, patient representatives, and others. Our workshops are at the heart of the business. Each event focuses on a particular topic that international and national guests (researchers and experts) highlight. The topics discussed are based on central health policy issues.
Seminar 7th of March 2018
Successes and barriers for innovation in health care
– What can we learn from three different health care systems?
Forum for Health Policy is pleased to invite you to an exclusive seminar about innovation in health care, arranged in collaboration with the embassies and chambers of commerce of the Netherlands and Switzerland.
Innovation in health care is necessary to successfully provide care for an increasing number of patients at lower costs and with higher quality. In Europe, each country has its own healthcare and innovation system with different characteristics, but they often face similar problems – technological, sociological, systemic and legal.
Entrepreneurs are eager to participate and change the system, despite barriers, and many health care systems experiment with new ways of stimulating innovation. Encouraging intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs and companies to test new solutions, creating an innovative culture and designing reimbursement systems that reward quality are just a few examples on how to stimulate innovation.
In this seminar, speakers with different perspectives on the health care systems in Sweden, the Netherlands and Switzerland will present their thoughts and insights.
What are the differences? What are the barriers and what solutions can we find? And most importantly, what can we learn from each other?
When: 7 mars, 13.30-17.00 (followed by reception until 18.00)
Where: Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Götgatan 16A, Stockholm
Cost: 995 SEK including VAT.
