Towards a joint European research programme on health services and systems
Over the last decade, European health systems have faced growing common challenges: ageing related issues and continuous financial pressures
call for innovative solutions on how to organise health care in an equitable and efficient manner. To address this situation there is an urgent
need to bring innovation and research evidence, to identify more effective and sustainable ways to organize, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care to European citizens.
TO-REACH is a coordination and support action (CSA) to prepare a joint European research programme aimed at producing research evidence supporting health care services and systems to become more resilient, effective, equitable, accessible, sustainable and comprehensive (in Europe, and abroad).
- To produce the Strategic Research Agenda of the future joint research programme;
- To broaden the coalition of committed Member States and funding bodies;
- To design an efficient “structure” of the research network.
‘Implementing and transferring innovations across health systems’ – Join the Final Conference of the TO-REACH project
1 May 2021
The TO-REACH project Consortium is pleased to invite you to its Final Conference, ‘Implementing and transferring innovations across health systems‘. The conference will be taking place digitally on Thursday, 20 May 2021 from 10.00 CEST.
European health systems have been under incredible pressure, and the COVID-19 pandemic was just the latest symptom of a more profound ailment. To address this situation, a new common vision is needed, one based on mutual learning and collaboration. Such vision is the key to transforming health and care systems and making them more resilient, effective and sustainable. Countries and regions in Europe should learn from each other and collaborate to enable the effective transfer and implementation of health policy and services innovations.Read More » Leave a comment »
