Affordability, accessibility and quality are the three core objectives of our current healthcare model. Our society is changing rapidly: diversity is increasing - both culturally and in terms of family structures - and people are living longer. Due to these social developments, the influx of innovative (medical) technologies and a constant pursuit of efficiency, the achievement of these objectives becomes a major challenge.
So how can the involved stakeholders, from the government, the industry, the regulators to the citizens, share the responsibility and risks with regard to health and medical care?
In a series of thematic workshops and guest lectures this Crosstalks project will look for new (international) models and initiatives that arise in health and medical care.
Starting from state-of-the-art scientific research and international case studies 'Equal Access to Health and Medical Care' wants to generate new ideas with regard to health care and to formulate policy-oriented answers.
