BMC Conference: "Managed Care in the digital age"
"In no other metropolis can visitors combine health, culture and lifestyle as well as in Berlin. Berlin's success as a health metropolis can be explained by its 300-year-old tradition as a health and science center. In the past, more than a dozen Nobel Prize winners worked here, including researchers such as Rudolf Virchow and Robert Koch. In the city's 80 clinics, around 814,000 patients are treated by around 8,700 working doctors every year.
We could talk about demographic change at the 2019 BMC Congress, but haven't we already done enough? The debate about an ageing society has accompanied us for decades, and all conceivable facts and figures have been collected and discussed: We are getting older and older, health care costs are rising, new challenges (keyword "loneliness in old age") are approaching us.
But we would like to discuss constructively this society that lives longer - above all lives healthier - than ever before in human history. How can we think together about the isolated issues of health care, housing, disability, care, loneliness and, above all, tackle them in an integrated way? What potential does digitalisation offer for health care in old age - even if an existing digital application hardly causes a direct change in life? How can care be better organised for those in need of care? And what efforts can we make to avoid the need for long-term care?
We look forward to many constructive debates on these and other issues at the 2019 BMC Congress entitled "Health in a Longer-Living Society". As known from the BMC Congress, we will build a bridge between innovative approaches in health care, international experience and scientific insights to connect opinion leaders from politics, science and practice.
