Transenter joins this year’s annual Healthcare Policy Summit entitled “Why health is crucial to European recovery” that will be held on Tuesday, 27 November 2012 in Brussels.
This year’s summit will focus on how to achieve an efficient and innovative healthcare system throughout Europe in times of austerity and increased competition from emerging markets. Rising unemployment and reduced tax revenues mean most EU governments will be struggling to provide their citizens with reliable and affordable healthcare, but where can greater efficiencies be found? Can e-health help deliver better care for less money within citizen-centred health delivery systems? Can austerity measures be reconciled with a boost in medical R&D and innovation spending, which is a must if the EU wants to remain a global healthcare leader? The summit will also discuss whether we need a strategic agenda for the life sciences industry.
