Decisive strengthening of the role of innovation; equity of access to care; development of innovative pathways between universities, public and private sectors; modernization of structures and consequent training of operators; better prevention and assistance in the area; greater integration between health and social services. Are these the priorities around which to build the future of health in Italy. The participants in “Agora“, An event promoted by Novartis and Culture as part of the social and participatory project”Health on the go‘, which took place this morning at the Maxxi in Rome.
The event – reports a note – allowed scientists, academics, associations, citizens, institutions and businesses to discuss the urgencies and objectives of health in our country and to translate the six principles of the Manifesto for “The Health of the XXI century” – Vision, Competence, Governance, Intelligence, Relationship, Humanity – in as many project actions for a radical renewal of the health system, within the framework of a sustainable, inclusive and innovative vision. The commitment now is to ensure that the objectives, the times, the resource plan and the actions that have been identified in the thematic tables in which the Agorà is divided “Health is Culture“Can integrate the Next Generation Eu Program and the Missions of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, respecting the projects included in the complementary Fund to the NRP.
“Right now, Italy has a unique opportunity to redesign the future of its healthcare and Novartis wants to make a substantial contribution in this regard,” he says. Pasquale Frega, President and CEO of Novartis Italito.
“The experience of the pandemic – continues the CEO of Novartis Italia – has shown that health protection plays a central role in the life of the country and that the capacity for innovation, translated into both advanced therapies and new approaches in the provision of services to patients and citizens, is crucial to guaranteeing efficacy and accessibility to care. The goal is an inclusive health system, to be built through a broad collaboration between all those involved and the work carried out by Agorà, with its ability to suggest concrete and sustainable paths and solutions to the institutions is in my opinion exemplary in this sense ” .
“The work done by the six Agora Tables strongly underlines the importance of developing a data-driven health ecosystem,” he says Felicia Pelagalli, Ceo Culture and lecturer at the Master Big Data of the Sapienza University of Rome. “The aggregate data concerning our health and which are linked to the provision of services, are a public good, are of general interest, are not the property of a single structure or a single regional or territorial body. It is no longer conceivable – he continues – to continue to resist passively by not feeding information flows, not allowing interoperability of databases. The governance of health data, for the common good, must be one of the new main missions of the NHS, as well as treatment and prevention “.
Today’s event – concludes the note – represented a significant step in the process started with the social program ‘Health In Motion‘and is part of Novartis Italia’s’ Science to live’ initiative, aimed at promoting scientific knowledge among the Italian population as a fundamental value for active and responsible participation in the life of the country and its growth.
