About this event

Join Claudio Lottenberg, President of the Council of Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein and the Coalização Saúde Institute in Brazil, for a deep -dive in to ‘access to healthcare’.

Claudio will focus on a “non digital” innovation. Many people associate access to healthcare with telemedicine – however in rural areas there needs to be a very different approach. The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the inequalities in our healthcare systems. Inequalities around diagnosis and access to drugs and treatments persist; citizens are not all benefiting equally from universal healthcare services. A high degree of access to healthcare (either leveraging technology in telemedicine or providing basic access to underdeveloped areas improves people’s overall health status, prolongs life expectancy and decreases health inequalities.
