Message from Friends of Europe
Join Friends of Europe for the ‘Café Crossfire’ lunch debate “Patient-centric care: New pathways for sustainable healthcare” on Wednesday 3 May (13.00-14.00) in Brussels.
Universal access to healthcare is something that Europeans take for granted, but can we still afford it? Our healthcare systems were designed to address acute needs with the hospital as the focal point. But the realities of healthcare today mean we need a radical rethink with the patient at the centre. Home care is a key part of the patient-centric model, giving people with chronic conditions the power to live fuller, better-quality and more independent lives and take control of their health – while lowering costs for healthcare systems. Technology can also play a crucial role as it can streamline healthcare delivery and reduce costs.
How can Europe help mainstream new emerging models of care delivery?
What can payers and authorities do to promote a shift to home-based care?
How do we overcome structural problems and change mindsets?
What is the role of telemedicine in enabling more care to be delivered at home?
What can be done to increase patient confidence in home-based care?
The event is organised in association with Baxter.
