Future Session

Consumer centred (digital) health care

Share this event

In 2019, The Spindle and the Hague Humanity Hub collaborate in organising a series of (almost) monthly inspirational working sessions for our mutual communities! In these sessions, we’ll explore the relevance of (technological) trends for the future of development cooperation. The sessions are high in energy and always involve an expert. See what’s going on and get more grip on the implications and ideas that would work!

Do you work around IT for Good? Universal Health Coverage? Digital health? Health governance? Innovation? Then you cannot miss this Future session!

From digital health innovations to sustainable health care.
Only a few countries globally have a health system that is staffed with sufficient numbers of trained and motivated health professionals, backed by qualitative health information provision platforms, coordinated by a well-maintained health infrastructure, matched to the consumers’ health needs and abilities. At least 400 million (young) people globally lack access to the most important health information and services and by 2030 an estimated shortage of 18 million health professionals is anticipated  At the same time, new diagnostics, devices, drugs and digital innovations are transforming how (young) people interact with the health sector. Therefore, innovative and evidence-based models that go beyond the traditional health sector response are necessary.

Having the right service in the right place, at the right time delivered by the right person

During this future session your brains will be teased on the following questions:

  • How do you design health care around consumers?
  • How do you lower the burden on the health care system?
  • How do you reduce cost and more efficient use of health care services and resources?
  • How do you promote self-care?
  • How do you use digital health for scale and sustainability?

Alexander Medik and Erwin Fisser from Aidsfonds Soa Aids Nederland will share examples from the successful Stepped Care Model for Sexual health from the Netherlands, together with teasers from Kenya and South Africa. It will be interactive and you will be able to see your ex-partner through a VR-experience. Curious? Come and join us.
