Hope Agora 2015 – Hospitals 2020 : hospitals of the future, healthcare of the future
1 June 2015 - 2 June 2015
Meeting from 1 to 2 June 2015 in Warsaw (Poland), the European Hospital and Healthcare Federation held its 20th Board of Governors and organised the closing conference of the 34th HOPE Exchange Programme, hosted by the Polish Hospital Federation.
HOPE Exchange Programme was attended this year by 128 professionals and focused on the topic “Hospitals 2020: hospitals of the future, healthcare of the future”. This topic was all about innovations in management and organisation of hospitals and healthcare services.
During HOPE Agora, participants on the programme reported back the results of their stay abroad. In their presentations, participants were asked to identify elements in the healthcare system of the host country which they found inspiring when looking at the challenges that they face at home in their own country. Without judging the system of the visited country, participants described, based on their experience abroad, what they would like to see implemented in 2020 in their own country, region, institution, or ward.
Presentations of the findings focused on innovations in organisation and management that the participants have come across. These innovations were recognised in the fields of patient care, clinical work, nursing, human resources, information systems, drug management, laboratory operations, finances, quality management, and patient involvement.
On the two days, participants were also very active on social media and interacted and exchanged information presented by using a specific Twitter hashtag (#HOPEep2015).
HOPE is currently preparing a report which will summarise the main findings presented during HOPE Agora 2015.
