Although the concept of a smart city tends to be based on unique cities that are often portrayed in journalistic pieces as if they were islands of exemplariness in a sea of despair, the truth is, most of these do not have an endless source of regional creativity to thank for this success, but rather the observation and adaptation of ideas and initiatives that have worked in other cities.Inspiration in the success of others is an essential driving force for change, however, what works in one city does not necessarily work in another. This is particularly the case in terms of municipalities or even countries with considerable demographic or even geographic disparities. Furthermore, very often, the first challenge to be overcome is sharing the knowledge acquired between the different entities within one regional administration.Relatively small changes within regional administrations can produce considerable benefits in terms of efficiency and even quality in the case of services related to the physical and mental health care of the population. Some very interesting opinions on this issue were offered during the Smart City Expo World Congress 2019.
