E6: Transformative Innovation in Swedish Health Care

Wednesday 22 June 2022 | 13:15-14:30

Format: Workshop
Stream: Population and Public Health
Content filters: Includes examples of using technology to enable change

A radically aging population, a countryside where hospitals sometimes are hours away and a health care system where technology quickly is changing the playing field. How does the Swedish public health care system tackle these challenges, and provide better health care for the patients?

Join us for a deep dive into innovation and technology in Swedish health care. Hear examples from leading experts in transformation, and add your voice to the discussion about how we translate these into improved outcomes for patients and communities.

After this session, participants will be able to:

  • Give examples on how the Swedish heath care system uses new technology to provide better health care in both urban settings and less populated areas

  • Understand how you can anticipate and plan for better outcomes when designing innovation processes in health care

  • Gain insights into the specific challenges that Swedish health care faces, as well as place Swedish health care innovation in an international perspective
