Z velikim veseljem vas obveščamo, da je Slovenija ECHAlliance ekosistem meseca julija.
Andy Bladen, direktor ECHAlliance in ECHAlliance Ekosistema, je o Sloveniji povedal: “Zelo smo ponosni, da je Slovenija ob pričetku predsedovanja Svetu EU, postala tudi ekosistem meseca julija. Slovenija je pravi sodelovalni ekosistem – je redna partnerica na naših srečanjih koordinatorjev ekosistemov; partnerica pri naših predlogih za projekte EU; in kar je najboljše, sodeluje tudi z drugimi ekosistemi, npr. z Galicijo. Z veseljem lahko povem, da sem se udeležil srečanja ob vzpostavitvi slovenskega ekosistema, kar se zdi kot oddaljen spomin, vendar je ta vpliv še vedno živ in viden tudi po nekaj letih, kar lahko vidimo sedaj pod vodstvom HealthDay.si in Slovenskega inovacijskega stičišča.”
V nadaljevanju pa nekaj iztočnic o slovenskem ECHAlliance ekosistemu.
1. What is the approximate stakeholder breakdown of your ecosystem?
Our stakeholders are a balanced mix of all key groups, as recommended by ECHAlliance. We’re here to support companies, academia, policymakers, patients, regulators, and other interested parties.
2. Who are the top 5 champions from your Ecosystem?
Better – a leading global company in the management of health data supporting true semantic interoperability
Caretronic – information system with wall tablets for nursing homes and hospitals
Mesi Medical – award-winning modular GP diagnostics
Arrow Fast – software for complex medical devices with fastest certify-and-go-to-market in the industry
HealthLord – patient health record and GP software solution in a uniquely comprehensive package
3. What EU funding/collaboration are you involved with, or you would like to be part of?
Both HealthDay.si and Slovenian Innovation Hub are experienced in various funding schemes, acting as excellent international partners, who also support each other locally. SIH is currently involved in an H2020 project called In-4-AHA, HealthDay.si via its co-founder Technology Park Ljubljana is participating in an Interreg project called ACSELL, with further projects in the pipeline.
Both organisations make a lot of effort towards enabling different members and stakeholders to be involved in national and international collaborations.
4. What are the key priorities and themes for your ecosystem?
Our ecosystem strives towards transforming Slovenian health and care towards higher value, primarily for the patients, but also for healthcare providers, researchers, companies, and society at large. The keywords common to most stakeholders are: #digitaltransformation, #valuebasedhealthcare, #innovativeprocurement, #intergratedcare, #artificialintelligence, #personalisedmedicine and others.
5. What is your primary strength as an ecosystem?
Slovenia’s healthcare services are excellent and despite systemic challenges and pending healthcare system reform, our strength lies in the dedication and commitment of the doctors, nurses, paramedics, researchers, and patient associations. Additionally, the recent awakening of the entrepreneurial spirit within our society is an inspiring step forward. Our champions (industrial and clinical) are becoming recognised international players in their domains.
6. Who are your clinical champions either hospitals, clinicians, and specialities?
