Digitalisation & Quality Improvement: Challenges for Better Health Outcomes

11th – 12th of June

Digital solutions in the health sector are infamously inconsistent, they do not share common approaches, terminologies or objectives. Digital solutions are complex and need to be critically discussed from the perspectives of different stakeholders and under technical, ethical, effectiveness and efficiency aspects.

Key question: do digital solutions and Artificial Intelligence (AI) improve quality of care and Patient Safety? 

Aim of the forum: better understanding of opportunities, limitations and risks of  digitalisation for quality improvement in health care 

Audience: a diverse international audience of health professionals, service providers, students, patients and public health delegates from health facilities, universities, ministries, health insurance companies and development agencies.  

The forum is organized by evaplan Ltd at the University Hospital Heidelberg, the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) , the aQua Institute for Applied Quality Improvement – Göttingen and the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health (HIGH) of Heidelberg University. 

Forum Fee: 95 €
