The congress was held from 5 to 7 June 2023 in Rome, Italy.

The main theme of the 28th edition of the leading Healthcare Management conference was “Healthcare Management: sustainable solutions for complex systems”. For three days, opportunities, best practices and innovations for evolving healthcare systems were analysed. Experiences and projects on innovative solutions for sustainable and resilient health systems were shared to address different challenges and areas by health systems and the people involved.

The 2023 edition was an opportunity to bring together health professionals, policymakers, academics, managers and researchers at the European level to share knowledge, results, projects and best practices on relevant health management topics. The conference addressed five main themes: People-centred systems; Health technology and digital transformation; Health workforce of the future; Sustainable and resilient health systems; and Access, delivery and outcomes of healthcare.
