April 16 / 17 – 2018

Game-changing Innovations towards the 2030 Healthcare agenda

The Hague, The Netherlands

https://worldhealthcareforum.com/wp-content/uploads/fb-forum02b.jpg

It’s our ambition to create a World Healthcare Forum that is the most innovating meeting in the sector.

Conference

Programme

We want to create a future of sustainable healthcare by bringing together stakeholders from different industries and backgrounds who are committed to address key healthcare challenges.

The WHF realizes a Forum in a two days meeting with a highly interactive program that with a well-balanced and a sufficient number of delegates raises awareness on topics and sets the priorities and agenda for sustainable healthcare. The issues to be discussed will be defined with our international advisory board and partners. So that every stakeholder can participate in streams (tracks) that are specially defined for stakeholder groups. The main theme of 2018 will be: game-changing innovations towards the 2030 Healthcare agenda. This means that all our sessions will be be approached from a game-changing angle.

The Forum wants to identify the major needs, best practices and challenges, business models et cetera. It will generate an integrated view by promoting a dialogue between all key-stakeholders. Thus, whereas current conferences and initiatives focus specific target groups or on specific elements or problems in the health chain, the WHF focus on those problems that require an integrated view across the health chain, involving all stakeholders.

Chairman of the advisory board is Prof. Jan Verhoef MD PhD

Dutch Healthcare System Safari

For our international participants, we will hold a Dutch Healthcare System ‘Safari’ on April 18, which touches point on the topics of prevention, insurance, diagnosis, cure & care. During this safari, we visit several companies nearby. Only availible in addition to your Day Pass or Full Conference Pass.

Venue

The World Healthcare Forum 2018 will be organized at the World Forum, the leading international convention centre in The Hague (The Netherlands).
