Dear Readers, dear Friends,

another year has passed and with the constant attention on “blink moments” (fast, immediate decisions spurred by constant social media feedback) it seems that all traditional wisdom has been thrown overboard – certainly, this is the impression one gets trying to follow policy around the world. At second sight though I believe that the blink-hype is a fallacy that deflects attention from the broader changes in the world in which we are living - demographics, epidemiology and the climate care little about changes within legislative cycles.

To the contrary, current and future challenges are well established and in optimism I believe that with a clear strategy rather than constant change we will be able to address these challenges.

Take for example the Ottawa Charter: the need to focus on healthy public policy, supportive environments, community actions, personal skills and reorientation of health services is as important as ever. I am therefore delighted that we have been awarded the contract to lead the WHO-initiated International Network of Health Promoting Hospitals into the future.

The merit to concentrate on strategy is also reflected in our new projects to establish population-based integrated care in the state of Hesse, Germany, and soon in Saverne and a district of Strasbourg, France, as well as in the award we have received for the best system integrator initiative in the UK and the research projects funded by the German Ministry of Health, the EU and OECD that put the patient at the centre of the attention.

I hope you enjoy this update on our work and look forward to hearing from you.

Merry Christmas & a happy and healthy year 2020!
