Digital Transformation Session (Thursday 9th May 2019, 14.30-16.00)

Facilitator: Dr. Eszter Kovács, Assistant Professor, Semmelweis University, Hungary​

Digital solutions have the potential to radically transform health systems and education by providing better outcomes, service and quality through technopolitical advances. Europe faces increased demand for health services due to ageing populations, rising patient mobility, and a diminishing supply of health workers caused by retirement rates that surpass recruitment rates. However, health professionals’ digital skills often fall short of the required level to use such new technology. This session assesses this issue and aims to find educational solutions to issues related to new technology and digital skills.
