June 12, 2024

12/06/2024 @ All Day –

The National Symposium on Integrated Care 2024 addresses the trends of New Work, digital transformation and innovation. They are seen as opportunities to relieve the stress on a system. At the symposium, we will combine them with integrated care.

We see the trends as opportunities to bring relief into a defined system; opportunities that can be seized without changing the major framework conditions of our healthcare system. We would like to provide impulses, show practical examples and discuss them with the participants.
