Description

The objective of this five-year project, involving five partners, is to set up a network between the hospitals of Strasbourg, Liège and Luxembourg, to be extended to other hospitals at a later stage. The hospitals are among the largest employers in their respective regions and, in so doing, play a key role in territorial development. The hospitals seek to adopt a transnational vision to pool their know-how in order to improve the impact of their activities on sustainable development [...]

Summary
The objective of this five-year project, involving five partners, is to set up a network between the hospitals of Strasbourg, Liège and Luxembourg, to be extended to other hospitals at a later stage. The hospitals are among the largest employers in their respective regions and thus play an important role in territorial development. The hospitals seek to adopt a transnational vision to pool their know-how in order to improve the impact of their activities on sustainable development by influencing the accessibility of patients to medical care. The Hospital Co-operation project also aims to improve co-operation and complementarity in the fields of technological innovation and staff training and to promote tele-medicine, the impact of which may be significant as a test case for reducing traffic flows, congestion and pollution. The computerisation and linking of three large hospitals with smaller and medium-sized structures will encourage more optimal decision-making by the medical institutions concerned at an operational level. The benefits, both temporal and territorial, will be extended to health care professionals, social security bodies and citizens across the three regions and potentially bring greater to efficiency to the formulation of future policies for hospitals.
