Digital Transformation Forum II: Focus on National Digital Health Strategies

One of the main lessons learned from COVID-19 is the pressing need to accelerate the digital maturity of our health systems to continue improving the health of our citizens and but also to be better prepared to respond adequately to future public health crises. What are the common challenges and how do we overcome these challenges through information and technology? How do we define a digitally mature hospital or health system? Do we really have a good picture of what success looks like? But most importantly how do we efficiently benchmark providers’ progress toward digital maturity?

Part 2: National and Regional Evaluation Programmes: Health 40 (TR), Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (NL), Dubai Health Authority (AE), NHS (UK)

This second episode will engage top-level health national and regional leaders who will discuss the impact of the pandemic on their digital transformation strategies and highlight key elements of their national digital maturity evaluation programmes. They will share how these large-scale evaluation programmes are enabling their health systems to promote sustainable digital adoption and how they are supporting the development of more robust and determined digital agendas. Representatives from various EMEA countries will discuss common areas of interest and the key objectives and messages driving their national digital transformation strategies.
