Robots are also being increasingly used in the healthcare system, in nursing care, for example. What are the advantages of androids? How can the interaction between man and machine be improved and used for the benefit of patients? Discuss these and other questions with us at the deep dive session.
In order to better involve patients in the healthcare system, a basic understanding of their own health and the system is crucial. How can we help patients improve their health literacy? We discuss the patients' personal responsibility and how their decision-making can and must be supported.
The significance of a digitalised health system is increasing. Technologically it seems everything is possible, but implementation of ideas has been sporadic. How do health insurers and other actors working in the fraught fields of data, humans and technology have to conduct themselves? What does society expect of tomorrow’s health system? We will take a look into the future and discuss the opportunities and challenges of a networked eco-system.
The electronic patient record (EPR) will be introduced in Switzerland in April. Prof. Dr. Nico van Meeteren, Executive Director of Health~Holland, will address the particularities of the Dutch health system and illustrate the factors of success underpinning the introduction of the EPR in Holland.
In the subsequent round-table talk, we will examine the challenges which still need to be overcome in Switzerland and look at the benefits that the EPR will offer patients and players in the healthcare sector. These topics will be discussed by Prof. Dr. van Meeteren, Prof. Dr. Angerer from the ZHAW, Carlos Garcia, President Associazione e-Health Ticino (eHTI) and Martin Fuchs, Head of Digital Health at Swiss Post. We will dedicate the remaining time to networking. We look forward to hearing from you.
Health care continues to experience seismic transformations, driven by data and shaped by new technology like 5G, ingestible sensors and sophisticated wearables. This new ecosystem is a place to reimagine health. It’s no longer just about delivering care — it’s about staying well. In the shift from health to wellness, health care players need to deliver care that is predictive, preventative and curative. And they need to do it a way that meets the discerning requirements of today’s mobile empowered health consumers.
This panel will explore how leading companies are reimagining wellness by combining consumer-generated and clinical data to make health care not only more personalized but also more predictive.
