Annual Conference 2021 of the European Health Management Association (EHMA)
Over the last year, health systems across Europe have encountered the most difficult times for a generation. Throughout the world, health services buckled under the strain of COVID-19, confronting enormous challenges around hospital capacity and workforce planning during a pandemic. As managers are pondering whether there will be a return to a ‘new normal’, important questions will be asked about how to increase the resilience and readiness of health systems whilst also providing high-quality routine care catching up on the backlog of many months of missed operations. Health management will be at the centre of providing solutions for these unprecedented difficulties. Bringing practitioners, researchers and academics together to share solutions has never been more important than today.
EHMA Annual Conference 2021 is organised by EHMA in collaboration with the Associação Portuguesa de Administradores Hospitalares (APAH) and its academic partners, the Escola Nacional de Saúde Pública and the Universidade Nova: Nova School of Business and Economics. The conference brings together experts from across the world to discuss solutions to managing services in the post-COVID future. The EHMA Annual Conference is widely considered the preeminent place to share experiences, skills and competencies in the field of health management. It is a place for all healthcare stakeholders to come together, discuss current topics and exchange innovation and best practices.
The JADECARE Joint Action will present its approach for transfering and enabling the adoption of best practice models for integrated digitally-enabled person-centred care to health care institutions and networking communities in different parts of Europe to foster and ensure the health and well-being of European citizens. We look forward to (virtually) seeing you at Lisbon!
