Abstract
Technologies for Ageing Well and eHealth are enabling the paradigm shift from traditional curative oriented healthcare towards an interconnected, integrated care model in which digital solutions play a crucial role. Digitalisation, devices, IoT and AI are clearly acting as catalysts in this irreversible trend. The ultimate question for health and social care systems is how to make this a reality in an efficient and patient-centric way, while maintain access to good quality care affordable for all citizens concerned. In this keynote I reflect on the relation between technology, Value based Healthcare provision, patient empowerment and community based co-creation in relation to transformation. In this respect, it is interesting to show some practices from various countries and see what lessons can be learned.
