Life expectancy is increasing, the demand for healthcare is growing and healthcare costs are rising. Aging, loneliness and health differences are actual topics that require a new and integrated approach. Therefore, a broader approach to health, in which well-being, living conditions, psychological aspects or, for example, stress are taken into account becomes more important.
The Healthy Society program aims to improve health and well-being for all members of society. To create a powerful collaboration, the program includes interdisciplinary scientific research on prevention and health, participating citizens, personalized and digital health solutions, and bundles existing initiatives and solutions.
The goal of Healthy Society is to develop, evaluate and implement citizen-developed, personalized and digital health solutions to optimize health and well-being and reduce health inequalities.
By keeping everyone healthy for a longer period in their life and giving people more control in their own environment, we want to contribute to accessible and affordable care.
Medical Delta, with the associated universities, university medical centres and universities of applied sciences, together with Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Universities (LDE), is looking for possibilities to expand the Healthy Society theme from a joint perspective. Technological innovations and applications such as remote monitoring or health apps give people more control over their own health and provide healthcare professionals with the right tools to appropriately treat diseases at an early stage.
Within Medical Delta, scientists from various disciplines work together with professionals from healthcare practices and the business community to develop these solutions. By doing so, they contribute to an inclusive healthy society.
