Cutting red tape + conference 

Conference for Council for Development Policy in the Regions of Denmark, the Danish Association of Local Government Employees Organisations, the Danish Health Confederation, the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations and the FOA

Anthropological analysis of debureaucratisation in the Danish healthcare system and conference 

Less bureaukracy, higher quality

The nearly 100-year-old Axelborg building in Copenhagen provided the setting for the ‘Quality and Debureaucratisation’ conference.

 

More than 300 politicians, hospital directors, representatives of unions and employer associations, regional council chairpersons as well as employees from the Council for Development Policy in the Regions of Denmark, the Danish Association of Local Government Employees Organisations, the Danish Health Confederation, the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations and the FOA came together to debate the basic question:

 

How can we simplify things?

Professional interaction, shared reflection

Health minister Nick Hækkerup kicked off the conference and set the scene for the first debate of the day, ‘Local challenges to debureaucratisation’.
 
The debate took its point of departure with a collection of 31 cases that PLUS Agency had prepared before the conference. After presentations and panel discussions, the opportunity for input, observations and mutual dialogue was opened up to the rest of the audience.

Variation throughout the day

The conference participants had plenty of opportunity during the day to interact with each other in several ways: in smaller groups and in the form of direct questions to speakers, politicians etc.
 
Participants could also post comments and vote on the day’s dilemmas and questions via text message, Twitter or the webpage. Comments and votes were broadcast live onstage on a big screen so they were visible to everyone in the room.

The many forms of interaction and communication at the conference resulted in a comprehensive day that increased dialogue, common reflection and the ability to find simpler solutions together.
