This poses great challenges to health care systems. In this context, the Vienna Healthcare Lectures 2019 critically analyze potential obstacles and chances for possible impulses. In addition, the question on how to create a health care system that is both modern and better adapted to the wishes of citizens and patients, will be posed.
