European Respiratory Society: Enabling Next Generation Medicine

Digital transformation in practice: Enabling Next Generation Medicine
The European Respiratory Society (ERS) organizes the largest respiratory medicine meeting worldwide (average of 25.000 attendees). The current edition was held online due to the pandemics. The Congress Chair’s Symposium was devoted to digital transformation of healthcare with two specific aims: i) To present initiative developed for a personalised medicine through new medical technologies; and, ii) To discuss the implementation of digital resources to improve the care of respiratory patients.
Structure: Four lectures explained experiences of adoption of digital transformation of healthcare in real world settings, as well as potential offered by the new scenario, considering integrated care and personalized medicine as ultimate goals to be achieved.
JADECARE was presented in three out of the four lectures (1, 2 and 4).
Symposium motivation – It is well recognised by health policy makers, also increasingly by health professionals, that implementation of digitally-enabled integrated patient-centred care constitutes the way toward generating healthcare efficiencies and long-term sustainability of health and social care systems. Intrinsic complexities in the process of scalability of the approach are fully acknowledged and well-defined strategies to overcome barriers for scale-up are in place. Moreover, digital health transformation with a systems approach paves the way toward precision medicine. There is no doubt of the enormous potential generated by the technological progress over the last decade, but practicalities of its implementation and adoption by healthcare professionals are far from being solved. Adoption of effective and sustainable digital health strategies for management of patients requires a critical analysis of the tremendous evolution experienced by both technologies and conceptual frames over the last few years. The symposium will analyze key steps, and lessons learnt in each of them, from successful deployment experiences. The ultimate aim of the session is to contribute to shape future healthcare scenarios.”
