Coping in a Covid-19 world

This webinar, with Dr. Anna Van Poucke, Global Lead Partner for Care System Redesign at KPMG Netherlands discusses the emerging trends and best practice from healthcare providers around the world, the recovery roadmap for healthcare systems and also looks at the potential bright side - what type of innovative and positive changes have come out of the crisis?

Integrated people-centered healthcare systems

Integrated people-centered health services means putting people and communities, not diseases, at the center of health systems, and empowering people to take charge of their own health rather than being passive recipients of services. Evidence shows that health systems oriented around the needs of people and communities are more effective, cost less, improve health literacy and patient engagement, and are better prepared to respond to health crises. In this webinar, we showcased the impact of adopting integrated people-centered services, on a system and individual level, highlighting examples and shedding light on the importance of an integrated people-centered system in a time of crisis.

Navigating virtual care

The pandemic forced an accelerated shift to virtual platforms across different sectors. What healthcare systems were able to achieve in weeks, was not possible for years in terms of digital acceleration and adoption. Digital became the only front door to healthcare, at both the provider and patient level. Physicians had to accept it to ensure the sustainability of care and patients found comfort in the speed of access to healthcare professionals, testing and follow through cases in fearful times. In this webinar, we highlighted the impact of virtual care on healthcare systems, with emphasis on providers. We will also discuss the optimal ways to make virtual care scalable, sustainable and efficient.
