Transforming hospitals to better serve local communities: options, challenges and strategies for integrated care networks in the Baltics
This 16th edition of the Baltic policy dialogue series, which will be hosted by the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs, will identify trends, key challenges and policy options for optimising resources at the local level. With this topic, we will revisit a recurring theme in the 15+ year history of the Baltic Policy Dialogue. This year’s policy dialogue aims to explore the potential role of local hospitals and health centres in moving towards more people-centred care and integrated care. Also drawing on the international experience, it will discuss challenges, experiments and plans in the Baltic States of redefining hospital care in the context of new models of care and networks to better serve the needs of local communities.
