EMBRACING THE FUTURE CONFERENCE

 Monday, September 10 2018 

Overview:

The Embracing the Future conference addressed the future of healthcare systems globally with a holistic view for stakeholders to identify and align on the critical elements to positively impact policy and practice throughout the world and Saudi Arabia. This conference would allow for selective deep-dives throughout the congress into areas within the system that are deemed of significant importance. 

The conference was of special relevance given the rising global interest in new ways of designing healthcare systems to address the mounting challenges that threaten the sustainability of these systems across the globe, including aging populations, rising burden of disease, persistent safety and quality concerns, relentless cost escalations, and scarce resources. 

The conference helped build a global network of leaders and aimed to become the source for emerging concepts and advancement in healthcare by facilitating opportunities for strategic, operational, and academic partnerships amongst interested parties while mobilizing support for the Kingdom’s vision and healthcare transformative plan.

Key topics:

  • Impact of policy on healthcare
  • Investment
  • Value-based healthcare
  • Healthcare innovation
