The Companion Report brings out some of the biggest trends in the transformation of our health systems:

• The digital transformation of health promotion and disease prevention can result in winners and losers.

• Gaps in health care accessibility are still very much a reality in the EU.

• Skill mix innovations among the health workforce show great potential for increasing the resilience of health systems.
