The pandemic has hugely amplified the importance of measuring health outcomes – both in Europe and beyond. Which steps can health leaders take to embed this in the heart of post-COVID systems and policies? A new Science|Business guide explores the options.
In February 2020, scientists, clinicians, patients and industry representatives met in Stockholm to discuss how governments, education systems, and new technologies can help treat and prevent mental health problems. The roundtable was the latest in the Science|Business Healthy Measures series.
The Netherlands has embarked on a five year national plan to use health data to improve outcomes for patients and increase the cost effectiveness of its healthcare system. In this report, public health experts and patient representatives discuss progress to date
Healthy Measures is a multi-stakeholder communications platform to mobilise support for better, equitable and effective health delivery across the EU.
The key to that is a sharper focus on patient outcomes – measuring what works, and doesn’t work, in treating patients from one clinic, region and member-state to another. For that, we need more experts – in industry, policy and academia – who help this effort grow across the EU, from one capital to another. Stakeholder groups need mobilising, and interconnecting, across Europe. The old silos in healthcare across Europe need to be dismantled.
