To ensure their sustainability and resilience, health systems must anticipate future trends and challenges, as well as plan to deal with them. Although changes in healthcare tend to be slow-moving and incremental, disruptive models, technology, and processes are ever-present and require swift adaptations at the European, national and organisational levels.

The EHMA 2022 Plenary Session on Anticipating future trends in health systems will address the following questions:

  • What are the drivers of change in health systems?
  • What are the trends to monitor over the next years?
  • What is the impact of these trends on healthcare delivery and health ecosystems?
  • What role for health managers as leaders to lead and prepare for these trends?
