The IEEPO 2020 journey

2020 International Experience Exchange with Patient Organisations

The 12th IEEPO (IEEPO 2020) explored how healthcare can move From Chance to Choice, inviting attendees to create the future of healthcare together. Co-creation, collaboration and exchange with representatives from a range of disease areas has played a big part in this year’s IEEPO, with leaders in global patient advocacy involved from the start in shaping the agenda and content. Key themes included the power of data, the digitalisation of healthcare, and exploring real life stories of personalised healthcare across the entire healthcare system.

In 2020 we took the difficult decision to postpone the in-person IEEPO 2020 meeting in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The reimagined virtual programme including a Q&A with Roche CEO, Severin Schwan, was a chance for us to still come together as a community to explore how we can move healthcare From Chance to Choice, in order to create the future of healthcare together.

Poster eBook

This eBook reflects the collective effort of representatives from more than 40 patient organisations worldwide who initially prepared these project posters for a best practice exhibition for Berlin during IEEPO 2020.

During the months that followed many of you asked us to find another way of sharing these best practices despite our inability to meet in person. This eBook is the result. We hope it will inspire discussion and debate as well as acting as a valuable resource for you and your team.

Webisode Series

Hear opinions from global leaders in patient advocacy on how healthcare is transforming to a more personalised future, the opportunities and challenges  for our healthcare systems, and practical guidance on how you can initiate local change to improve the experiences of people living with diseases. These can be found on the resources page.

If you wish to use the webisodes or have any questions regarding their content, please contact us.
