Health systems are facing significant challenges from a fiscal sustainability perspective. Reasons range from the growing health and long-term care demands of an ageing population to costly technological progress in medical services and the impact of pandemics. To cope with rising health expenditures, the availability of funding is key to ensuring sustainable, innovative, and resilient health systems. It is therefore crucial to demonstrate the financial sustainability of investments in health and the concomitant benefits to all stakeholders.
This session will examine existing and potential future funding mechanisms and other innovative solutions contributing to make health systems more sustainable, environmentally friendlier, and efficient while delivering high quality care. Through insights from public funders, best practices, new initiatives, and interactive discussions, the session will reflect on how to address existing and forthcoming challenges to achieve a sustainable and innovative health system within a common European Health Union.
