INTRODUCTION

As we mentioned in session 07, devoted to digital transformation, we are continuing to take a deeper look at the essential levers and instruments for producing a structural change in the health system and model.

So, we are continuing on with innovation and the capacity of its transfer into the true improvement of health results which entails a true change in how things are done and improved assistance and satisfaction of the recipients of health services.

We also want to talk about the different types of innovation and the capacities of supporting them, funding them and reproducing them in a system that distances itself from classic models and offers open models that enable better shared knowledge, agile implementation and the obtainment of more efficient, satisfactory and sustainable results.

We will also reflect on the actual capacity to innovate in our healthcare provision structures, the partnerships that need to be developed for effective public-private collaboration and the level of training in professional structures that can break away from classic models and tackle new challenges and get the most out of legal capacities and attract regional, state, European and global funding.

We are going to take a closer look at reflections that make it possible to see and harness the main innovation hubs which are true driving forces for projects focused on the results that we have indicated and wealth generators in the sector. 

Therefore, we seek contributions from our speakers than can enable us to delve deeper into the transformative capacities of innovation.


Are our health organisations truly prepared to innovate, do we have the right training and support structures?
Do professionals find pathways for developing their innovative ideas?
Is there the capacity and generosity to work on join projects shared between different entities?
Do we know how to interact with industry in terms of the relationship of contributing value and results in a true public-private collaboration?
Does European, state and regional governance offer opportunities to develop innovative processes, are they fully known and harnessed?
Do we miss opportunities due to a lack of knowledge and/or the lack of an innovative strategy?
Have the hubs of institutions and innovative professionals been identified and brought together?
Is there actually a real dilemma based around different types of procurement – statutory, public civil service and labour -, is this a problem for transformation?


Both the speeches and the debates will incorporate contributions on these issues and many more.
