The Embassy of Sweden in Madrid, in collaboration with the Neat Group, organized a session entitled “Leading digitalization in healthcare sector” last week. The aim of the conference was to exchange experiences based on the digitalization and the improvement in the quality of life of the elderly and disabled people.
The Swedish Ambassador in Spain, Lars-Hjalmar Wide, inaugurated the conference and gave a short presentation of the benefits of digitalization in healthcare sector. Malin Svensson, Commercial Counsellor of Sweden in Spain, stressed that the challenge of increasing the population in our societies, coupled with an increase in chronic diseases, makes us doomed to “develop solutions that improve the quality of life of people”. In addition, Svensson has presented Neat “as an example of a company that has become a supplier partner that favours digitalization while empowering the user. It is not possible to cope with change without a transparent and open dialogue with people”.
The next to speak was the founder of Neat Group, Adolfo Tamames, who in his speech spoke about the need of the sector to adapt to a digitalized world. “We must use all available tools to improve the quality of life of the elderly, without replacing the human factor and maintaining the humanization of care,” Tamames said, who also added that telecare services could prevent patterns of user behaviour thanks to artificial intelligence.
The conference had several professionals who presented some digitalization projects carried out outside Spain like Jérome Boissou who presented Eliot, the program of digitalization at home developed by Legrand; the technology strategy leader for the welfare of the city of Gothenburg, Asa Wall, who described some of the projects carried out in her city and Tom Morton, who explained how the healthcare is being developed thanks to the digitalization in Falkirk (Scotland).
Finally, important professionals of the health sector in Spain closed the event with a discussion about the current situation of digitalization in the healthcare sector.
