Morning Session & Lunch

A healthier future for the aging generation

GoCo Arena 5 Kärragatan, 431 53 Mölndal

Over the years the industry have been successful to develop several innovations to treat or detect diseases that commonly increase with age. In return this has led to more people living longer lives. Together we have a responsibility to continue to develop and create new solutions for the future of health. Not only to create good and valuable lives for the aging generation, but also to maintain a society that enables us to be actors in our own lives, regardless of age.

We invite you to participate in a morning session at GoCo Arena. Meet Academia and industry when they highlight the important dialogue focused on health for the aging generation.

Program 09:00 – 13:00

The program will be held in Swedish and will be moderated by Ingmar Skoog.

Health Works panel talk Innovation & healthcare systems – Creating the perfect match

Great innovations that move us from sick care to health care can revolutionise how we feel when getting older. But to be relevant and valued by the end users innovations have to fit the healthcare matrix – or be able to change it. How can healthcare providers, payers and industry collaborate on mutually beneficial solutions and business models that work in reality?

Panel guests: Jan Kilhamn, MD, PhD, Head of R&D Healthcare, Region Västra Götaland and Kristian Nilsson, MD, resident geriatrician, and incumbent at Sahlgrenska University Hospital specialist training programme on Innovation & Technology.

Panel moderator: Mia Ekdahl, Head of Relations & Communications, AstraZeneca Health Works
