More than 80 government officials and healthcare professionals met at the Embassy of Denmark on July 24 to listen to a presentation on Primary Care Innovation in Denmark led by Kjeld Møller Pedersen, Professor of Health Economics and Health Policy at the University of Southern Denmark.
Professor Møller provided an overview of Danish healthcare policy efforts within the last decade to improve primary healthcare and hospital care. The audience expressed particular interest in knowing more about healthcare connectivity, utility and security in Denmark along with national healthcare policy initiatives to improve primary health and hospital care.
The event at the Embassy was the second in a four-part “Embassy Conversation” series in Washington, DC on Primary Care Innovation & Implementation designed to inform US health policy makers of the successes and challenges in other countries. The series was organized by the American Board of Family Medicine Foundation, Robert Graham Center, North American Primary Care Research Group, and International Implementation Research Network in Primary Care as part of their ongoing efforts to encourage international collaboration and learning.
