Partner introductory remarks: Thomas Cueni, Director General, IFPMA
Our health care systems are being challenged. From the rise in chronic diseases to an aging and growing society, as well as the depletion of health funds, governments and health professionals must develop innovative solutions to keep our systems effective and sustainable.
There is a growing call to shift from a “break-fix” reactive model to a more proactive and predictive one. But as our health care systems are highly focused on acute care and curative medicine, going beyond easy fixes to incorporate prevention of all levels into systems’ culture, incentive schemes, funding models and organization will require a systemic change.
On October 8-9, 2018, POLITICO and Le Temps brought the Annual Health Care Summit back to Geneva for what was its third successful edition. We gathered the industry’s top minds together with key policymakers, scientists and patient representatives to tackle global preventive health challenges head-on, reveal some of the latest cutting-edge technologies in predictive medicine and prescribe solutions to meet the health care sector’s most pressing concerns.
