Catch up on our 2019 summit

On November 21-22, 2019 POLITICO brought forth successful edition the Annual Health Care Summit to Amsterdam. We have gathered the industry’s top minds together with key policymakers, scientists, business leaders and patient representatives to debate the policy and cooperative innovations to improve public health for the betterment of society.

The summit looked at the following questions:

  • How could policymakers, health professionals, tech leaders, patients and all stakeholders help bridge the gap?
  • What were the recent innovations – be they digital or not – in health care and do they reduce or reproduce inequalities?
  • Was universal health coverage a lofty dream or an objective we cannot but work towards achieving soon?
  • What could be done to address the systemic causes of health inequities?
  • To what extend and under which conditions could big data and digitalization contribute to identifying and tackling inequalities and determinants of health?

Interview with Martin Seychell, European Commission deputy director-general for health and food safety, led by Carmen Paun, health care reporter at POLITICO. This was be followed by a panel discussion on the future of European Health where Martin was joined on stage by Sara Cerdas MEP (S&D, Portugal) and Jan Kimpen, chief medical officer at Philips and president of COCIR.

Interview with Chris Fearne, deputy prime minister and minister for health of Malta, led by Carmen Paun, health care reporter at POLITICO.

Interview with Anthony Humphreys, the European Medicines Agency (EMA)’s head of scientific committees regulatory science strategy, led by Sarah Wheaton, senior health care reporter at POLITICO.

Why the Health Care Summit, and why now?

Health and health care have made exponential progress over the course of a century. But inequalities are still rife. While statistically we enjoy much longer lifespans and better health, disparities in health outcomes in the world but also within the EU are important.

Many factors can affect the health of people and lead to inequalities, like where we live, what we eat, genetics, education or social integration.

  • How can policy-makers, health professionals, tech leaders, patients and all stakeholders help bridge the gap?
  • What are the recent innovations – be they digital or not – in health care and do they reduce or reproduce inequalities?
  • Is universal health coverage a lofty dream or an objective we cannot but work towards achieving soon?
  • What can be done to address the systemic causes of health inequities?
  • To what extend and under which conditions can big data and digitalization contribute to identifying and tackling inequalities and determinants of health?
