IHF participates in 2014 Healthcare Europa – Private Healthcare Sector Conference

ImageThe International Hospital Federation (IHF), represented by Sheila Anazonwu, Partnerships and Project Manager, was invited to participate in the 2014 Healthcare Europa Conference, held 13 March 2014 in London, UK.  This event is the pan-European conference dedicated to the private healthcare sector.  Delegates included investors, CEOs of large hospital and nursing home groups.

The event hosted annually by Healthcare Europa , is the pan-European conference dedicated to the private healthcare sector which provides an opportunity for stakeholders to gain a clear picture of the forces responsible for driving growth in private healthcare services across Europe.

The theme of the conference, Return of the Bull Market, addressed the impact of the web on patient behaviour and the how powerful IT platforms are capturing new markets against a background in which the current squeeze on public budgets is leading patients in many countries to turn to the private sector.

There were opportunities for major healthcare investment companies, service providers and suppliers from western and eastern countries such as France, Romania, United kingdom, Russia, Finland, Norway, Switzerland and Poland, to exchange ideas and experiences and engage in interactive discussions on trends and possible solutions in regard to such areas as :

  • Improving current and future care and driving productivity in health providers;
  • The role of industrial internet in delivery of healthcare services and how this will help boost operator productivity.
  • Future trends in providing elderly care and the need to develop a culture which will encourage delivery of high quality care to this population
  • The role of the web in building new services, based on sophisticated patient record systems, aimed at creating life-long loyalty     from groups as varied as families, the elderly and the active fit.
  • Prospects, current opportunities and hazards of investing in East and Central Europe
