Digitalization under the closer look of science

How to build digi­tal public servi­ces in health care? The case of Estonia 

The deve­lop­ment of new tech­no­lo­gies poses two key chal­len­ges for sta­te insti­tu­tions. First, buil­ding the tools of digi­tal govern­ment. Second, to use the data col­lec­ted and with it to impro­ve public poli­cies – inc­lu­ding tho­se in the area of health care.

Har­nes­sing the power of digi­tal tools and gro­wing amo­unts of data will be one of the answers to emer­ging chal­len­ges in the health sec­tor, such as pan­de­mics, ine­qu­ita­ble access to servi­ces, and inef­fi­cient and costly public pro­grams. Howe­ver, the capa­bi­li­ties of Euro­pe­an coun­tries in this regard vary.

During the semi­nar, Wero­ni­ka Prze­cher­ska will ana­ly­ze the fac­tors that favor the con­struc­tion of digi­tal public servi­ces and data­ifi­ca­tion (e.g., cla­ri­ty of the legal fra­me­work), the bar­riers to the­ir deve­lop­ment (e.g., lack of e‑identification tools), and the bene­fits of using data. The spe­aker will also pre­sent rese­arch fin­dings on Esto­nia, a digi­tal leader in public servi­ces. She will discuss the coun­try­’s solu­tions and the fac­tors behind its suc­cess in digi­ti­zing public health services.

Comments on the study will be given by:

It deals with popu­la­tion aging and its con­se­qu­en­ces, as well as public finan­ce, espe­cial­ly at the local level. In recent years, his inte­re­sts have focu­sed on local aspects of aging and smart city con­cepts as an attempt to respond to the chal­len­ges of an aging population.

He has been pro­fes­sio­nal­ly invo­lved in the IT indu­stry for over 18 years. He has par­ti­ci­pa­ted in IT pro­jects in the roles of pro­gram­mer, tester, admi­ni­stra­tor, imple­men­ter, con­sul­tant, desi­gner, ana­lyst, archi­tect, pro­ject mana­ger and cur­ren­tly IT busi­ness part­ner – thanks to which he has gained com­pre­hen­si­ve indu­stry expe­rien­ce. He spe­cia­li­zes in adop­ting new digi­tal scien­ce tech­no­lo­gy solu­tions (ML, AR, IoT, VR, RPA) to cur­rent orga­ni­za­tio­nal pro­ces­ses in the Phar­ma and Medi­cal indu­stries. The acqu­ired prac­ti­cal know­led­ge allo­wed him to par­ti­ci­pa­te in the lar­gest IT pro­jects for IT com­pa­nies and public insti­tu­tions, car­ried out in Poland and abro­ad. Cur­ren­tly, in the role of Senior IT Busi­ness Part­ner, he works at Polphar­ma (one of the lar­gest Polish phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies) sup­por­ting the orga­ni­za­tion on stra­te­gic, tac­ti­cal and ope­ra­tio­nal levels.

The semi­nars are one of the acti­vi­ties asso­cia­ted with the „Ini­tia­ti­ve for Excel­len­ce – Rese­arch Uni­ver­si­ty” pro­gram (IDUB) PROGRAM. During the „Digi­ta­li­za­tion under the clo­ser look of scien­ce” semi­nars will look at issu­es rela­ted to digi­tal trans­for­ma­tion, new tech­no­lo­gies and inno­va­ti­ve rese­arch methods.

The aim of the semi­nar is to sti­mu­la­te inte­rac­tion betwe­en young scien­ti­sts and experts from the public and busi­ness sec­tors. During the series of deba­tes young scien­ti­sts will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pre­sent the­ir rese­arch in the field of digi­ti­za­tion and rece­ive sub­stan­ti­ve sup­port from experts. Thro­ugh the ini­tia­ti­ve, we want to popu­la­ri­ze the­ir achie­ve­ments and research.

„Digi­ta­li­za­tion under the clo­ser look of scien­ce” is a plat­form for coope­ra­tion, inte­gra­ting scien­ti­sts from the Uni­ver­si­ty of War­saw, dealing with digi­ta­li­za­tion. We want the meetings to cre­ate a frien­dly envi­ron­ment for exchan­ging and sha­ring the latest know­led­ge, but also for trans­fer­ring spe­ci­fic com­pe­ten­cies in pro­ces­sing, ana­ly­zing and using data and expe­ri­men­ting with new rese­arch methods. You are welco­me to join!
