THE FUTURE OF HEALTHCARE IN ITALY: SANT’ANNA SCHOOL INSTITUTE OF BIOROBOTICS FACULTY ATTENDS THREE-DAY WINTER SCHOOL IN COMO

Next week, Stefano Mazzoleni, a researcher of the Biorobotics Institute, will attend a three-day conference “The Future of Healthcare in Italy” in Como, on January 25-27. The conference is organized by Motore Sanità and will explore a range of topics related to decentralization and recentralization of regional health services, regional differences in policies and financing which impact on continuity of care for chronic diseases and rehabilitation programs.

National and local decision makers will partner to raise awareness, share information, and enhance accountability for the healthcare system. The decentralization and recentralization of health services across Italy, although improving the quality of care in some regions, do not completely fulfil some commitments such as home care, prevention, rehabilitation, cost-sharing and co-payments for out-patient care.
