The Sustainable Healthcare Challenge
Like many countries around the world, Israel’s healthcare system is facing significant challenges. The “Short Blanket”, the growing gap between the needs of the health sector and the resources devoted to answering them – endangers its sustainability for the coming years. With an aging population, ever-growing rates of chronic diseases and the advancement of new services and technologies – it is urgent to find innovative ways to save resources and improve patient outcomes. In this reality, promoting a quality, attentive and sensitive healthcare system, that is also effective and just – and at the same time sustainable – is a greater challenge than ever before.
What is Reboot Forum?
Reboot Forum is a public benefit initiative established in 2014, aimed at promoting health to the very top of the national priorities and ensuring the sustainability of the healthcare system in Israel. The forum is a wide community of about 1,000 members (Policy Makers, HCP’s, Academia, Industry and other KOL’s and experts) that cooperate, on a voluntary basis, to bring about change and improvement through innovation and collaboration. We peruse principles of practical innovation, transforming the academic discourse into actions.
What Do We Do?
We support the sustainability of the healthcare system in Israel: We encourage people within the health system to take initiative, and lead the change themselves, supporting innovation and entrepreneurship by our ‘Health Accelerator’ that gives financial support, consulting, mentoring, and broad professional and public exposure. Initiatives that can lead to significant change are identified through the annual ‘Leading Health Initiative’ contest. We do not claim back profits. Improving public health, processes, services, and patient experience – the profit is of the health system and society. Our Events are an exclusive platform for public debate around healthcare and a driver for a broad exchange of ideas and cross-sectorial multi-disciplinary cooperation. plus, the forum’s Health Talks are the ultimate way to influence, criticize, raise public/professional awareness or to share innovative ideas with Israel’s health community.
