4 webinars that will become a book about the recovery of normality in the health sector and the role of technology and digitalization.

Within the framework of the MYSPHERA Chair, attached to the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), several webinars will be held in the coming months with some relevant personalities from the health and ICT sectors regarding the challenges faced by the health sector after the pandemic.

Digital seminars that, together with the testimonies of their participants, will later become a book about the changes that society and the health system have undergone and will undergo.

Webinar series “Transition from COVID-19 to the new normal”

5 webinars on the changes that society has experienced with the pandemic and the role that health digitalization has played and will play in the future.

If there is clear evidence that the global health crisis that we have experienced in recent months leaves behind, it is the need to evolve. Necessary progress both at the social level and in a sector that has been key at the most critical moments of the pandemic, health. A situation that has highlighted the inevitable progress that we must make with digitalization and technology. Elements that we have had within our reach up to now, but which, in many areas, such as health, have not been exploited to the full.

It is precisely around this issue that the 4 webinars of MYSPHERA are based:
– Contact Tracing – Initiatives for the detection, containment and traceability of infections
– Impact of COVID-19 on Global Healthcare Systems
– Elderly homecare and Active Aging European Initiatives after COVID-19
– The Spanish health system after the pandemic

Throughout these 4 web seminars different members of MYSPHERA and the UPV will moderate these digital talks together with personalities and professionals from different entities and companies from the health and technology sector such as SITUM, Telefónica, Hospital 12 de Octubre, NB-23 or Air Liquide.

These testimonies are of great value and will help to analyze both the current situation and the expected future after overcoming the pandemic, not only nationally, but globally. To gather this experience and vision, two of these web seminars will be in English with the presence of professionals of different nationalities.
