What and Who?

These networking and demonstration days will offer opportunities for mutual knowledge sharing, reflection, discussion, and networking from British/Norwegian suppliers, innovative solutions and networks.

In London and Oslo, British and Norwegian smart hospitals and digital home monitoring services and businesses will present best practices and implementation experiences. Digital home monitoring in the health and care sector is an area where the UK and Norway can greatly benefit from knowledge sharing and collaboration. And it is important – it never benefits patients and citizens to reinvent the wheel separately and in isolated processes, but tomorrow’s challenges can only be solved together.

Why organizing Norwegian-British Health Demo Days?

UK and Norway’s healthcare systems share many similarities. Internationally, the Norwegian market is often a beacon in terms of organization, knowledge, skills, and strong values. What we have and what we succeed with is a product of skilled healthcare professionals and high ambitions to continuously improve quality, make future-oriented decisions, and renew the right elements when needed.

Despite a good starting point, the healthcare systems in both UK and Norway face significant challenges due to aging populations, more chronic diseases, and increased multi-morbidity. This requires renewal of organization, treatment, rehabilitation, and care, utilizing new technological and digital opportunities for home treatment more effectively to alleviate pressure on the sector without compromising quality and value for patients and citizens.

Both the UK and Norway have already many digital health solutions in place for precisely this purpose and more are on the way!
