New opportunities in the health field, thanks to improved coordination and quantification

How can chronically ill patients access better and more coordinated care? How can we measure whether care delivered is effective and brings the benefits hoped for, to everyday medical life? What instruments and data do we require and what contribution can patients themselves make?

On 20 March 2019, the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences, the Swiss Clinical Trial Organisation and Interpharma invited speakers to respond to these questions.

This event took place at the Stiftung zum Glockenhaus foundation in Zurich. It aimed primarily to reach science journalists, as well as actors from the scientific community, representatives of the authorities, and health insurance companies. 

The programme and the presentations of the event are available in German and French.
