EHD Awards 2017

The European Healthcare Design Congress 2017 was brought to a triumphant, yet poignant, conclusion yesterday (13 June) as the winners of the European Healthcare Design Awards were announced.

Quality improvement

Agnès Couffinhal, a senior economist at the OECD, gave a powerful and insightful keynote address on the subject of wasteful spending in healthcare systems.

Empowering patients

Solutions to the healthcare challenges of the future cannot be developed by experts alone.

Personalised medicine

The 100,000 Genomes Project is a landmark programme bringing personalised medicine to the NHS and the world.

Cancer care

Maggie Keswick Jencks lived with advanced cancer for two years. During that time, she and her husband Charles Jencks worked closely with her medical team, which included oncology nurse Laura Lee, now Maggie’s chief executive, to develop a new approach to cancer care.

Views and perspectives

Bobby discusses the variation between how people in different countries rate their current healthcare services, and how this relates to their concern about the future of the services.

Procurement

Up to a fifth of health expenditure makes little or no contribution to improving people’s health. In some cases, it even results in worse health outcomes.

The hospital in the city

A reorganisation of healthcare systems is needed to increase the provision of care at a local level, supporting the management of chronic disease and mental illness within primary care settings, and thus reducing the need for disruptive hospital interventions.

Global health systems

There is little correlation between the level of concern people feel about their healthcare and actual health indicators, or actual expenditure on health, explained Bobby Duffy, managing director of Ipsos Mori’s social research institute.

Cancer care

It’s now 21 years since the first Maggie’s centre opened in Edinburgh, and the charity is more relevant today than at any time in its history, according to its chief executive, Laura Lee.
