Paolo Benanti, Professor at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome and expert in bioethics, ethics of technologies and human adaptation; Anna Odone, Professor of General and Applied Hygiene at the University of Pavia. Introduced by Mattia Altini, Health Director of AUSL Romagna.

Digital technology today is characterised by an unprecedented pervasiveness: every object is connected to the Net with consequences that we are only able to glimpse. In this scenario, digital technology represents a paradigm of distributed intelligence, knowledge, action and governance, from which Health Systems can simultaneously learn and benefit. Today, it is becoming possible to think of integrated hospital-territory medicine – a project that remained for decades in a drawer of the National Health System (NHS) – thanks to technology and the network.
Concepts such as “control”, “governance”, “coordination”, “objectives” must be questioned and conceptually moved from hospital desks to the streets of a territory. Can we reorganise an increasingly fast, technological, distributed, costly, capable and innovative NHS?
