IFIC 22nd International Conference on Integrated Care

A coherent and integrated healthcare system is key to solving demographic challenges and reducing the time patients remain in hospitals. This forms the basis of discussions at the IFIC’s (International Foundation of Integrated Care) 22nd International Conference on Integrated Care in Odense, Denmark, from 23 – 25 May 2022. 

Presentations by Vilans experts and researchers

A team of Vilans experts and researchers are participating in the 3-day event divided into four main themes: Personalised and person-centred health and care; Digitised and digital support of health and care; Innovative collaborations; COVID recovery and impact on health and care systems. The delegation is being led by CEO Mirella Minkman and Dir. Strategy and Development, Henk Nies. Both will be presenting and participating in discussions together with Vilans researchers, Nick Zonneveld; Sander Merkus; Diny Stekelenburg, Nathalie Stolwijk and Jessica Michgelsen.
