Changing patterns of diseases: 60% of all deaths are due to chronic diseases • 35.000.000 people died from chronic diseases in 2005 in the world. • The highest chronic diseases prevalence are for: • Cardiovascular disease, mainly heart disease, stroke • Cancer • Chronic respiratory diseases • Diabetes • Without actions to address the causes, deaths from chronic diseases will increase by 17% over the next 10 years. • In the USA, 85% of all hospital costs and 69% of all physician costs go to treat chronic diseases Source: WHO (2006) 5 Number of procedures increases with age putting pressures on HC expenditures ƒMedical advancements result in people living longer Ageing ƒThe elderly consume even greater amounts of healthcare delivery Population is consuming services. more healthcare ƒWhen people are above 65 years old, they receive four times the number and of diagnostic procedures as others receive diagnostic Number of services procedures ƒAnnual rate of growth in the number of images radiologists must interpret increases – estimated at 6% to 12% with age x putting pressures on HC expenditures expressed as a share of GDP per capita Increasing Average expenditure per head age profiles put pressure on public health expenditures A g e g ro u p s 6 Source: Economic Policy Committee (2001) “Budgetary challenges posed by ageing populations”

Healthcare delivery… a very risky activity Dangerous Regulated Ultra-Safe Total lives lost per year (>1/1 000) (>1/100 000) 100 000 Healthcare Driving 10 000 1 000 Scheduled Airlines 100 Mountain Chemical European Climbing Manufacturing Railroad 10 Bungee Chartered Nuclear Jumping Flight Power 1 10 100 1 000 10 000 100 000 1 000 000 10 0000 000 Number of encounters for each fatality More deaths per encounter than for any other activities ! Adverse events carry a high financial cost, £2 billion a year in additional hospital stays alone in the NHS ! 7 New trend: the patient has a voice and choice Comparative Social / Financial Public quality demographic responsibility policy indicators Connectivity changes Engaged patient Empowered patient • Patient empowerment is a increasingly undisputed fact • Patients are more informed and thus more opinionated • Informed patients will shop for healthcare providers that meet their specific needs and expectations • Informed patients want more customization and move convenience 8

ACCESS „ “Consumer led” delivery service QUALITY OF CARE „ Supporting increased demand for services (in volume and sophistication) „ Patient oriented care/Clinical pathways „ Meeting 24hour/7days a week service „ Collaborative care/Continuum of care Quality Access expectation „ Disease management programmes „ Facing ageing population and new „ “Voluntary” gatekeeper approach pattern of diseases (Global Medical Record) „ Facing individualism and diminishing „ Continuous medical education family care potential (Accreditation) & Peer Review „ Avoiding waiting time initiatives „ Increasing private care „ Increasing attention to Efficiency „ Increasing patient’s co-payment medical/medication errors „ Patient satisfaction Efficiency „ More evidence-based medicine (outcomes based) „ Matching capacity to demand „ Deploying resources more effectively „ Avoid abuse (multiple exams/acts, etc.) „ Reducing costs of well-established procedures „ Controlling escalation of costs „ Transforming healthcare (process & workflows) „ Using new ICT technology to support transformation 9 Public authorities need to do things differently: « Good health can save costs » From «late disease» To «early health» • Symptom based • Prevention / prediction • Data silos • Detailed patient info • Managing illness • Early diagnosis • Average therapies • Targeted therapies Critical information whenever and wherever it’s needed INFORM & SHARE Prevent Diagnose Treat Monitor Identify at risk patients earlier Earlier, more accurate diagnosis Earlier, more targeted treatment Track efficacy of treatment 10

  • 12. But … Key issues to address • eHealth currently treated as an add-on rather than part of an integrated eco-system. • Standards for interoperability of ICT, being adopted consistently, should be further encouraged. • Increased funding and alignment of Incentives between who pays and who benefits from ICT in health should be undertaken. • People, processes and change management should receive more attention for implementation. • The involvement of end users (health professionals and patients) is essential for developing ICT solutions. • An emerging challenge is coming to widely held concepts of privacy and confidentiality. • Innovation and research should be stimulated and better coordinated at crossroads of social, health, ICT and life science aspects. • 23 24
