International Outlook on Community-Based Care

For countless generations, the practice of medicine has been a deeply personal interaction between physicians and patients in their homes and communities. Only in the last century did much of healthcare consolidate within hospitals, in some instances creating large institutional silos, disconnected from the populations they serve. However, with an explosion of modern technology, care delivery is once again beginning to reach beyond traditional hospital walls to engage patients, manage illness and promote health.

This keynote will look at the vision for the future of community-based care in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and beyond; what does it really mean to extend care beyond the hospital walls? What are the key steps to breaking down the barriers between the sectors, offering a more connected care experience for patients, improving access and outcomes for patients, whilst moving towards a more accountable care system? 

Join this session for international examples of successfully implemented community-based care models as experts from the region and beyond address the gaps, challenges and solutions to moving towards a more streamlined continuum of care.  

Learning Objectives 

  • Understand the vision for “out of hospital care” in the KSA, and the main challenges to making it a reality 

  • Examine the key steps to implementing effective integrated community-based care with a focus on accountable care delivery 

  • Take home practical lessons on implementing new models of community-based care from standout international examples.
