Digital Health and Wellbeing Thematic Innovation Ecosystem

29th September 2021 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

Digital Health and Wellbeing insights from the COVID-19 response – informing plans for renewal.

The ECHAlliance Digital Health and Wellbeing Thematic Innovation Ecosystem is a forum for the sharing of good practices, exchanging ideas and gaining new knowledge.

The first European Connected Health Alliance (ECHAlliance) Thematic Innovation Ecosystem on Digital Health and Wellbeing in May 20201, featured timely examples from Scotland and from Slovenia about how digital health solutions accelerated during the COVID-19 response. 

The response to COVID-19 has required health and care systems to adapt services rapidly and to provide services in innovative ways. More widely, we know that health and care providers, supported by their governments, expanded existing digital solutions during this time and developed digitally enabled solutions to continue to provide access to health and care services. The discussion in this session on 29 September 2021 will continue the discussion and ask:

Whether there are examples of digitally enabled solutions – scaled up during the COVID-19 response, now being included in the strategies, action plans or policies for health and care renewal?

Our presenters from Wales (UK) and Australia will discuss the following:

  • Examples of how digital solutions are being included in national or regional health and care service renewal strategies or action plans. 
  • Examples of sustained changes which demonstrate digital becoming part of hybrid (in-person and digital) health and care pathways.  
  • Whether digitally enabled services are evident across health and care? Or, in specific areas such as: Primary Care, Mental Health, Remote Monitoring etc.,
  • Who are the stakeholders driving this shift?  

The outcomes of this webinar will help to gain the knowledge from other regions and countries of their experience responding to COVID-19 and accelerate the learning and potential adoption of this knowledge at local and regional level.
