After standard care, standardized care, and personalized care, network care will be care 4.0. The second day of the New Frontiers symposium, on 2 November 2018, dealt with the complexities of network care. About 250 healthcare stakeholders (professionals, policy makers, insurers, patients) and healthcare researchers attended the symposium.

The symposium was chaired by Gert Westert and Jan Kremer. The complete program can be found here.

No easy answers at this conference, only challenges that can be overcome if we succeed in 5 things. First and most radically, put patients in the center of healthcare. Second, start with assessing what the local population needs and not what local professionals have to offer. Third, stop with competition in the healthcare market and find (together with payers) ways to build networks around patients. Fourth, defragment healthcare by regionalizing supply of care. Finally, collaborate and adapt systems to what patients need. Remember, small steps can make huge differences.
