DiHECO partners from the University of Montpellier (Sea Matilda Bez and Irene Georgescu) participated at the ORCA conference on the 18th of November 2021. During one of the plenary seminars devoted to the post-surgery experience and patient satisfaction, Sea Matilda Bez and Irène Georgescu discussed their preliminary results from a case study developed for DiHECO. The results are about "how digital platforms such as Hospitalidee can create value and opportunities for hospitals? Said differently, what value for hospitals from analyzing the patient feedback freely accessible online".
