The H2O consortium wishes to reinforce the statements made in the EPFIA Power Up Report highlighting the challenges we must overcome to achieve resilient healthcare systems.
If we give patients ways to measure their outcomes in a standardized manner, this will not only improve their communications with their physicians but will also create a body of knowledge that will allow us all as a society to learn what worked and what did not and get better. It is often called a ‘learning healthcare system’. And learning health care systems become resilient. They improve continuously, they incorporate the knowledge and they advance science.
We are very pleased that H2O initiative is included in the report as an example of the public and private sector working together to address these critical needs.
- The POWER Up report outlines EFPIA’s positioning on what they are calling the POWER up priorities: People-centricity, Outcomes, Workforce empowerment, Efficiency and Resilience
- The report also calls for investment in transformational tools – namely digitalisation and innovation that generates value for patients, health systems and society as a whole
- The report is a rich source of data for each of these areas
- The report also emphasizes the need to measure outcomes in a standardized and consistent way (as we are doing in H2O)
