SMB network meeting Transforming ‘elderly’ care together recap

Last Thursday we organized the SMB- network meeting “Transforming (elderly) care together,” aimed at addressing the growing crisis in healthcare due to an aging population and a diminishing pool of young healthcare workers.

A comprehensive transformation of care is necessary, which requires collaboration across multiple sectors. We need cutting-edge living and care models that enhance independence and use informal care networks to not only solve the housing & healthcare problem, but also the growing loneliness amongst elderly.

A key focus of the meeting was the discussion on several regional actions designed to fundamentally improve (elderly) care, including the introduction of the Digital Health Challenge Lab (DHCL) and a moonshot project for the region.

By collecting the challenges in healthcare, companies are encouraged to develop innovative products and services that meet actual demand and support, thus together transforming challenges into business opportunities.

Thank you to our speakers Caroline Vos – Tolhuisen from Volkshuisvesting Arnhem Ciska Rouw from RIBW Arnhem & Veluwe Vallei and Maurice Magnee from HAN University of Applied Sciences.
