Compagnia di San Paolo’s work agenda in the health sector is still characterised by a strong selectivity, above all territorial, because it is only focused on the Turin area.
It favours the creation of connections between research and health applications (translational research and precision medicine) and support for initiatives aimed at introducing greater economic- organisational rationality in management processes, including through the acquisition of innovative technological solutions. To achieve these goals Compagnia acts in close coordination with the Regional Department of Health Protection and Healthcare both from planning and funding point of view.
To this end, a three-year agreement (2017-2020) was signed with the Piedmont Region in the second half of 2017 to set out coordinated development programmes in the health sector. On the one hand, the agreement concerns implementing and consolidating the repayment plan of City of Health and Science University Hospital of Turin. If implemented, this would free up considerable resources for the benefit of innovative processes. On the other hand, it regards the analysis and experimentation of new models of integrated care, with particular reference to chronic patients.
In 2018 a new call for tenders is planned to support the purchase of innovative technologies by Healthcare Centres in the Turin area in 2018-19.
