    Workshop - The most sustainable healthcare in the world 2030 - Malmö - Conclusions

    20190328 110923On march 28, the second workshop was organized in Malmö for the project ”The most sustainable healthcare in the world 2030” funded by The Swedish Innovation Agency - Vinnova.

    In this project, NCSH works together with partners Medeon, Medicon Village, Swecare and Sahlgrenska Science Park to make a pre-study. It will be the basis for creating a vision to achieve the most sustainable healthcare in the world by 2030 and establish an arena for innovation, collaboration and communication of swedish sustainable healthcare.

    The day started with an introduction to sustainable healthcare and NCSH by Daniel Eriksson, founder of NCSH. After the introduction, we listened to Ralf Schmitt, Corporate Head of Sustainability, Getinge. He talked about Getinges way to sustainability, different approaches and how to create a sustainable value. After that, it was time for Johan Brun, Senior Medical Advisor, The research-based pharmaceutical industry (LIF). Some of the questions she talked about was how to reach a fully sustainable use of pharmaceuticals and how to reach sustainability througout the entire chain.

    20190328 100703After a small coffee break, we listened to Peter Kelly, International Director, Pharmafilter. He told us about new possible solutions for dealing with waste and wastewater. The next person on stage was Louise Strand, Purchasing Director, Region Skåne. Louise talked about the different dimensions of sustainability and how to introduce sustainability in the procurement.                 

    Last but not least, we got the chance to listen to four shorter presentations about the challenges in sustainable healthcare. First was Thomas Bäckström, BTB Emulsions, who talked about perfect emulsions with people, profit, planet in mind. Lars Malmgren, Medarca, talked about how to secure the drug activities and taking away manual administration within elderly care. Pete Andersen, Watersprint, told us about a intelligent water purification and last was Peter Höjerback, Avidicare. He told us about a unique system for ultra-clean air in operating theatres.

    When the last presentation was finished, everyone got to sit in smaller groups in a workshop to discuss thoughts and ideas. These were later shared and discussed with the rest of the groups before it was time for lunch.

    The results from the workshop then? It will be presented in the final report, the roadmap and the vision! So stay tuned for future updates from the project.

    We thank everyone who participated, and especially all the speakers for interesting presentations!
