How can university hospitals create sustainable added value for patients and society? EUHA wishes to inspire healthcare collaboration and systems strengthening and is therefore participating at the World Health Summit on the 29th October.

Healthcare creates a lot of value; our health is one of our most important assets. Innovation brings us increasingly advanced knowledge and technological solutions. But we are also a resource intense sector, e.g. the NHS is the UK’s largest employer. So far we have mainly analysed our short term results, but what is the effect of our treatments 5- or 10 years later? How sustainable is the value we create?

At the World Health Summit, our panel looks forward to discuss with the audience how we can achieve a balanced approach that aligns the social, economic and environmental resources and improve health outcomes. We’re very pleased to with the participation of our colleagues:

• Moderator: Heyo Kroemer, CEO the Charité
• Sir Robert Lechler, CEO King’s Health Partners
• Maria Karsten, Head breast cancer surgery, the Charité
• Jan Hazelzet, Professor Healthcare Quality and Outcomes, ErasmusMC
• César Velasco, Director AQuAS (Agency for Healthcare Quality & Evaluation)

Since its launch in 2009, the World Health Summit has brought together stakeholders and decision-makers from across the healthcare spectrum, providing the perfect forum for exchange with experts from academia, industry, politics and civil society.
