Only few days have left until 1 March, which is the deadline for abstract submission for the European Health Management Association (EHMA) 2020 Annual Conference (Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 9-11 June 2020) on the theme of ‘Health Management: realigning systems, contexts and players.’

#EHMA2020 will look into a number of pertinent questions, such as:
What is the role of health management in leading the necessary changes towards better health systems and services?
How can managers help to go beyond silos-oriented healthcare and bridge innovation, sustainability, systems and people?
How can we scale up and integrate change in the healthcare ecosystem?
At #EHMA2020 six sub-themes will be explored continuing the discussion launched in Finland during #EHMA2019 on six ‘pillars’ of healthcare change in Europe and beyond. The sub-themes are:
- Systems & Organisational Governance
Focus area: Measuring performance in citizens’ centric health systems – How to make it happen?
Focus area: The SDGs as drivers for sustainable health management
- Digital Transformation
Focus area: Data as a key tool for health managers
Focus area: Personalisation vs. quality care for all
Focus area: Breaking the silos – Interdisciplinary work to implement integrated care
- Value-Based Healthcare
Focus area: From theory to practice – delivering the value-based transformation
More information on these is available here.
Each sub-theme has its ‘focus area,’ and abstracts submitters are encouraged to present papers addressing one of those. However, there is as well a wider range of keywords and topics worthy of further discussion, therefore any abstract responding to one of the sub-themes will be evaluated, even if not specifically addressing the focus area.
Abstracts can also be submitted under the Karolinska Medical Management Centre / EHMA Research Award (PhD Students’ session). This option is available to young researchers who are in the final phase of their PhD studies or have recently completed a PhD. Abstracts may not be linked to #EHMA2020 theme, but must be associated with a doctoral thesis in the field of health policy and management. The best papers will compete for a €1,000 prize during a dedicated conference session.
The deadline for the abstracts submission is 1 March, 2020 at midnight CET.
