Redefining the Role of Hospitals

Innovating in Population Health

About the congress

With the scope “Redefining the Role of Hospitals - Innovating in Population Health”, the 27th EAHM Congress will address the possibility of integrating innovation and technology in order to positively change the way we can deliver healthcare and define the role of hospitals in the future. Within this focus, the following main topics will be discussed: People Centeredness; Integration of Care; Innovative Provision Models; Financial Sustainability and Management Matters.
As the needs of an aging population grow, resources are becoming increasingly stretched across the globe. This is in addition to the escalation of certain viruses and diseases. Therefore, on-going challenges will remain for European hospital managers and for hospital managers worldwide and will continue to be an issue for management.

More than ever, the healthcare system needs hospitals as beacons towards the future. Hence, hospital managers leadership is more than crucial.
From the 26 to the 28 September 2018, we challenge you to discuss and to debate hospitals delivery model and to commonly redefine the role of hospitals, not only as an industry but also as public health agents.
We welcome you to the westernmost point of mainland Europe, to discover new routes for our collective future.

Who will attend?

The 27th EAHM Congress will bring together more than 500 of senior hospital managers and directors as well as a wider range of healthcare organizations including national and regional leaders and researchers from more than 25 European countries.

Diagnostics, Data and Integrated Clinical Care - Role of the Lab

As healthcare faces multiple challenges, healthcare leaders including hospital managers need to adapt, especially in the context of integrated clinical care. As up to 70% of clinical decisions are based on a diagnostic result, the lab has a central role here. However, there is a divide between what the lab delivers today versus what healthcare leaders believe it can deliver for integrated care. Join us in this symposium at the EAHM Congress 2018 to explore this divide and find out how the laboratory can impact hospital performance and help improve patient outcomes.
