At this year’s ScanBalt Forum, innovation clusters from across Europe are invited to share their experiences with digital solutions to overcome the COVID 19 crisis.
The COVID-19 crisis has put digitization of healthcare and cross-border cooperation high on the agenda for the future of Europe. Innovation clusters, private and public research institutions, pharmaceutical companies and start-ups work together with university hospitals and health care institutions on concepts to overcome the current crisis and to strengthen digital health care. This German EU Council Presidency has set itself the goal of using these civil society initiatives as a starting point for the creation of a Single European Health Data Space.
You are very welcome to join the ScanBalt Forum 2020 taking place online at 4th of September.
I am a senior clinical academic with research interests in quality improvement. My particular interests are how you integrate technology into clinical workflow, and measure quality and health outcome from routine health data. My professional background is as a general practitioner, with my masters and doctorate in medical informatics; though I largely see technology as a tool for quality improvement (QI), greater efficiency and for improved management of health systems. I am appointed as Professor of Primary Care and Clinical Informatics and Chair in Health Care Management at University of Surrey. I am also Head of the Department of Health Care Management and Policy. I am also the Director of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) Research and Surveillance Centre; http://www.rcgp.org.uk/clinical-and-research/research-and-surveillance-centre.aspx a sentinel network for flu and other infectious diseases.
I have been appointed as publications officer to EFMI. In this role I am keen to promote the publication of papers and reports arising from our conferences and other activities in high impact journals. I am particularly keen that younger members of our research and clinical communities get the chance to publish their work and see it highly cited.
