IHF 44th World Hospital Congress

By | Dec. 20, 2019 | 0

44th IHF World Hospital Congress

2-5 November 2020 | Barcelona, Spain


Theme: "People on board, transforming healthcare"


As you may know, the IHF Congress is a unique global forum that brings together leaders of hospitals, health services, and healthcare organizations to discuss key drivers of national and international policy, management, financial trends and solutions. Through this forum multidisciplinary exchange of knowledge, expertise and experiences are facilitated, together with dialogue on best practices in leadership, management and service delivery. 

We believe it is a great opportunity for ISQua members to showcase their work to the global healthcare community in both your annual conference and our congress. Perhaps your team can disseminate the information? Your members can submit abstracts under the following sub-themes for a chance to present in a session or poster:

  1. Digital and technology driven transformations
  2. Towards an integrated concept of health and care services model: Value driven transformations
  3. People at the center of healthcare system transformations
