Mission completed. On Apr 28 we hosted our first Ibero-American webinar to offer a virtual space for the Spanish speaking Health Community. Our aim, to exchange perspectives, solutions and ideas and moreover facilitate knowledge transfer as a response to COVID-19.

With our kick-off event we managed to leverage the knowledge exchange among several countries, initiating a dialogue to open up opportunities and speed up solutions in times of COVID-19. Being thrilled by all the initiatives and projects presented with a high focus on innovative solutions and the openness to strengthen collaborative models, we are now intensively working on defining with our partners a way forward to foster and extend cross-border collaboration efforts by a need-led conversation.

Very special thanks go out to our partners:
Cluster Médico Jalisco, UMA Health, Smart People, cibersalud and Revista Salud Digital Latinoamérica

Together, we were able to build a diverse agenda (access full agenda). We were able to feature 6 countries from the Ibero-American region, sharing insights and innovation with an audience across countries from France, Germany, United States, Chile, Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia and Brasil.

Presentation: 4-5 speakers per session / country (multi-sector actors)

Duration: 90 min

Approach: Based on the following questions

  • What are your priorities for improvement in your health care system?
  • What kind of technology do you think is needed to transform health services in your country?
  • In which areas do you think help is needed?
  • What innovations in health services and experiences would you like to share with other ecosystems?
  • What is your expectation out of the webinar session?

Audience: the selected country and open to participants from all over the Ibero-American region
