The theme chosen for this year’s edition is Together, with 25 appointments and over 35 Italian and international guests involved in meetings, talks, interviews and debates to explore innovative solutions and processes for the development of a health system that is increasingly effective, efficient, sustainable and fair. A need highlighted even more by the pandemic and post-pandemic scenario, which can only be answered through collaboration of all stakeholders involved and the development of new solutions and processes based on the use of digital technologies.
In particular, there are 5 topics addressed during the day. There centrality of people and the empowerment of patients, in a trend that is linked to the territoriality of medicine and the need for widespread healthcare close to real health needs. There governance of health systems, which in the new normality requires updated models adapted to emerging needs. THE more innovative and virtuous business models for the world of health, which are linked to the new sensitivities and attentions on the part of investment companies and venture capitalists. The digital therapies, emerging frontier between treatment options and demonstration of how digital can be the very active principle of a therapy. Finally, the technology transfer, between scientific research and developmentan indispensable link between medical science, the business world and health applications.

The only two options we have before us are, in fact, open collaboration or privatization of health care. The complex relationship between datacracy and sanity it will also be the theme that will close the program, with Walter Ricciardi who will explain why intervening quickly and well with a radical change of course, taking advantage of the NRP but also of the opportunities offered by the big health data that we increasingly have at our disposal, is a priority to avoid a civil and social débâcle.
