Pan-Organisational Capabilities
Are health authorities and governments more successful in providing pan-organisational capabilities than private initiatives and care chains, or vice versa? This controversial panel debate will explore the maturity of IT in healthcare in different OECD states.
There will also be an opportunity to discuss the pros and cons between centralised and decentralised systems.
