As world leaders gather for the World Bank Spring Meetings in Washington, D.C., Royal Philips, in partnership with Devex, will host a private dinner to discuss the role of successful and scalable business models in transforming health systems. The conversation will address key elements needed to enable these initiatives: appropriate (financial) risk sharing to ensure sustainable transformation, investments in medical technologies and solutions, human resources and capacity constraints, as well as long-term performance-based contracts.
