Health Movement caring for the health of the future
Healthcare systems have never been more challenged. One in every three people are dying from preventable causes. There are rising numbers of patients with multiple chronic diseases. Many populations are ageing. Healthcare systems must reconcile these challenges against a backdrop of already stretched budgets, 20-40% of which are used inefficiently. We start from the basis that countries share 80% of healthcare challenges. This opens multiple opportunities to collaborate across borders, cross-pollinate learnings and share solutions adapting to local nuances.
Current Status: Building local networks/Open Innovation/Policy Shift
We started in May 2020 with future scenario exploration in 9 countries in 2 waves: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru, Argentina, Ecuador, Uruguay and Mexico. In 2020, we rolled out the initiative in 5 countries, where we already have strong local networks in place with partners that will not only contribute to build momentum but are also contributing with their assets. In Chile we have 3 solutions ready to be piloted, in Colombia we have selected a group of entrepreneurs who will start the acceleration program in July, and we are about to start the open call in Costa Rica and Brazil with challenges already clearly defined. In terms of policy, we have started to work in all countries with the policy vision definition and in Chile we have advanced already in a series of 3 roundtables where we have explored interoperability between levels of care and private and public institutions, with a use case as a starting point in relation to waiting lists.
Next Steps: Building local networks/Open Innovation/Policy Shift : We will consolidate a wave of 2 country networks over the course of this year and we will continue to execute the open innovation programs across Latin America, expecting to have a pipeline of at least 10 solutions by the end of 2021. We are also expecting to have a roadmap of policy shift campaigns for 2022 based on the roundtable sessions being run in the 9 countries. We have perspectives of rolling out in 4 more countries by January 2022.
Current status: Focus area and problem space definition/Building local networks
What we are already doing: Canada Health 2030 (CH2030) so far has brought together approximately 50 participants including citizens, decision makers, and industry to develop new partnerships and dynamic ways of working together at a federal, provincial and local level to realize the goal of Canada becoming a leader in the transition to personalized health. The scenarios exploration kicked off in January 2021 and was facilitated by the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies (CIFS). The aim was to explore the current and future PHC landscape, identify strengths, weaknesses, ongoing initiatives, and possible partnerships to boost Canada’s role as a PHC leader. We are currently solidifying our regional leadership team of influential stakeholders and working on a sustainability plan to move towards action on the roadmap and must-win areas.
Current status: Regional Setup/ Focus area and problem space definition
What we are already doing: Having Turkey and Russia in the scope of the first wave countries included in the Movement Health, we started engagement with the affiliates at a local level, onboarding the local teams and instilling the vision of the Movement Health. Aiming to reveal the bottlenecks in the local healthcare systems, we are working closely with our partner CIFS, leveraging the Roche internal know-how and healthcare experts in respective countries. In parallel, the Regional Board and the Growth Committee are being set up, considering diversity in skills to be able to cover both innovation and policy shift.
Next steps: Focus area and problem space definition: The initial roundtable in Turkey will be conducted by the end of Q2’ 21 and in Russia in Q3’ 21.
Current status: Regional Setup/ Focus area and problem space definition
What we are already doing: Europe Movement Health kicked-off last February. In order to position Movement Health regionally, Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies has set up 9 workshops with local stakeholders from the Nordic countries (Norway, Sweden, Finland,Denmark), Baltics (Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia), Hungary and Bulgaria to foster dialogue amongst them and prioritize regional challenges. We are setting up two boards that cover the full scope of Movement Health, considering both policy and innovation needs. We are aiming for a multidisciplinary and forward-thinking board. The key difference in the approach for Europe is that the challenges will be approached with a cross-country approach aiming to leverage the experience of countries that are more advanced.
Next Steps: Building local networks: The Movement Health team has also mapped stakeholders and entities across Europe, identifying potential partners. We are about to start engaging with them to build synergy, gain their interest and formalize agreements.
Current Status: Regional Setup
What we are already doing: Most of the countries with a direct Roche presence (Algeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia and South Africa) are excited to embark on the Movement Health given the health-related challenges in the continent. Regional Boards and Growth Committees are being created, as well as identification of external partners: UNDP Acceleration Labs is already on board
Next steps: Focus area and problem space definition: 4 countries will participate in the first wave which will kick off with round-tables with local experts in Q3 2021. In parallel, a second wave with 4 additional countries will follow in 2022.
Current status: Regional Setup / Focus area and problem space definition
What we are already doing: The complexity of the healthcare system in the Middle East has been magnified during and after the pandemic, raising an enormous number of challenges that hinders the optimization of the Healthcare services in the region. We in the Middle East believe that Movement Health is one of the ways to overcome these challenges in an effective & sustainable manner. Four Middle East Countries (UAE - Lebanon - Jordan & Iraq) Got onboard and we are aiming to expand to include the whole middle east countries in the near future.
Next steps: In Depth Ecosystem mapping per country including current & future stakeholders to engage and have a relevant positioning within the healthcare system. Roundtables to be conducted (With External Stakeholders) per country to identify current challenges & potential opportunities.
