Decisive strengthening of the role of innovation; equity of access to care; development of innovative pathways between universities, public and private sectors; modernization of structures and consequent training of operators; better prevention and assistance in the area; greater integration between health and social services. These are the priorities around which to build the future of health in Italy. The participants in “Agorà”, an event promoted by Novartis and Culture as part of the social and participatory project ‘Health in movement’, which took place this morning at the Maxxi in Rome, identified them. The event – reports a note – allowed scientists, academics, associations, citizens, institutions and companies to discuss the urgencies and objectives of health in our country and to translate the six principles of the Manifesto for “Health of the 21st century” – Vision, Competence, Governance, Intelligence, Relationship, Humanity – in as many project actions for a radical renewal of the health system, within the framework of a sustainable, inclusive and innovative vision. The commitment is now to ensure that the objectives, the times, the resource plan and the actions that have been identified in the thematic tables in which the Agorà “Health is Culture” is divided can integrate the Next Generation Eu Program and the Missions of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, respecting the projects included in the complementary fund to the NRP. “At this moment, Italy has a unique opportunity to redesign the future of its healthcare and Novartis wants to offer a substantial contribution in this sense”, he says Pasquale Frega, President and CEO of Novartis Italia. “The experience of the pandemic – continues the CEO of Novartis Italy – has shown that the protection of health plays a central role in the life of the country and that the capacity for innovation, translated into both advanced therapies and new approaches in the provision of services to patients and citizens, is crucial to ensure effectiveness and accessibility to care. The goal is an inclusive health system, to be built through a broad collaboration between all those involved and the work carried out by Agorà, with its ability to suggest concrete and sustainable paths and solutions to the institutions is in my opinion exemplary in this sense ” “The work carried out by the six Tables of the Agora strongly underlines the importance of developing a data-driven health ecosystem”, says Felicia Pelagalli, CEO of Culture and lecturer at the Master Big Data at the Sapienza University of Rome. “The aggregate data concerning our health and which are linked to the provision of services, are a public good, are of general interest, are not the property of a single structure or a single regional or territorial body. It is no longer conceivable – he continues – to continue to make passive resistance by not feeding information flows, not allowing interoperability of databases. The governance of health data, for the common good, must be one of the new main missions of the NHS, as well as treatment and prevention “. Today’s event – concludes the note – represented a significant step in the process started with the social program ‘La Salute In Movimento’ and is part of the ‘Science to live’ initiative of Novartis Italia, aimed at promoting scientific knowledge among the Italian population as a fundamental value for an active and responsible participation in the life of the country and its growth.
