Rationale and objectives

Our continuously ageing societies face a major transformative challenge on handling the Chronic Diseases and Doctors’ Low Density. Moreover, new types of diseases, and even the changes in profiles in the types of diseases and care required require a new set of solutions, as healthcare systems get under pressure for handling more patients with lower costs. Communication technologies is an essential element for developing efficient healthcare system for this new age.

It is important that we collect experiences on what is already possible, and what is needed for the future, both for identifying areas where it is required deeper interchange with the health and wellbeing sectors, and for identifying areas where communication technologies need to evolve to provide economically viable solutions to this vertical. In this context Networld Europe jointly with CCSA, organized a webinar, aiming to provide deeper understanding on the present and future needs and requirements of the Health and Wellbeing sectors, sharing the valuable experiences and practices of Europe and China.
