    2020 Vision: Alignment and Advocacy in Healthcare

    Seismic pressure is building in healthcare systems around the world. As we confront the toll of chronic disease and recognise the global swelling of ageing populations, it is clear that a paradigm shift is unfolding. While our healthcare system is at the frontier of global care delivery, it was not designed to counter the threats that we now conceive. This session provides the structural platform for the Forum, as we confront the entrenched political, financial and social forces shackling healthcare transformation in urban and rural locations, and reveal what action is underway to begin rescinding these barriers.

  • 11:30 - 12:15Customer Session

    Patients and Professionals: Shared Decision-Making Across the Continuity of Care

    Accounts of consumer empowerment have reached the healthcare sector. Patients are demanding a more active role in the clinical decision-making process to articulate care preferences and priorities known only to them. Consumers are accustomed to data linkage across nearly every dimension of their lives, but over-reliance on archaic technology in healthcare is creating a severe disconnect and undermining patient confidence, experience, and outcomes. In this session, we’ll discuss how to care for the individual at a systems level; modelling shared decision-making processes to engage on the patient’s terms across the whole continuity of care.

    Make Healthcare Work for Everyone

    Behind every great experience is a great workflow. That couldn’t be more true in healthcare.

Join us to explore how ServiceNow makes it possible for healthcare organisations to deliver under any circumstance by securely optimising and automating critical clinical and business operations – ultimately helping to improve care and efficiency.

    People at the Core: Driving Decisions with Dialogue

    Change is enacted on the frontline; at the point of connection between clinicians, care providers and patients, the site of data creation and collection. There is a distinct opportunity to augment this site to provide greater efficiency, accuracy and security in the pursuit of optimal patient outcomes. In this session, we’ll examine the new thinking and technology conceived to improve the interface between patients and practitioners, examine whether barriers to technological buy-in are a product of the product or the people, and cast a light on the need for greater mental health support for those who provide care.

    Systematic Transformation: Pathing the Road to Interoperability

    Seamless and secure information exchange is the cornerstone of next generation healthcare systems. But moving from legacy systems towards the holistic adoption of cloud capabilities and applied AI remains an expensive and elusive undertaking. In this session, we will interrogate the financial and technological frameworks that are shackling system transformation, calling on leaders at various stages of their transformation journey to cast an honest light on the reality of pursuing interoperability.

    Courageous Leadership: A Rallying Cry for Healthcare Transformation

    The severity of the challenges facing contemporary healthcare leaders cannot be underestimated. Automation, machines, and algorithms will have a profound impact on healthcare, and rather than reluctant and belated acceptance, these advancements must be actively interrogated and integrated. In this session, we will shed insight on mastering rapid change management in an industry that has typically undertaken transformation carefully, and hear the strategies executives are adopting to navigate their way through the minefield of conflicting stakeholder interests and healthcare imperatives.

    Real Time Health Systems: Critical to Patient Safety During COVID-19 and Beyond

    COVID-19 has highlighted how nurses, clinicians and other care team members contend with infectious diseases on a daily basis – and the need to protect patients and healthcare workers. But even communicating can increase the infection and contamination risk when dealing with highly infectious viruses. Mobile phones aren’t easy to use with PPE and pagers lack the security protocols needed in healthcare.

    Feared and Revered: Advancing Down the Path to Progress

    Technology is advancing at a pace and scale unprecedented in human history. This acceleration is a creating opportunities for emboldened thinkers with a penchant for disruptive methodologies to partner with experienced players that have witnessed the reality of provoking change in large-scale systems. In this session, we’ll examine how new entrants are proposing to revolutionise patient outcomes; which areas of care delivery are ripe for disruption and the risks that may entail, and the partnerships and compromises required to advance down the path to progress.

    The Role of Technology in Healthcare Transformation: Lessons from the Pandemic and Beyond

    Technology can be used to empower patients in managing their own chronic diseases and improve outcomes while lowering costs. We illustrate with home monitoring and automated coaching for hypertension, digital phenotyping for serious mental illness, and self-assessment and targeted exercises for stress and coping. The COVID-19 pandemic has provided opportunities to accelerate these trends and helped us to move quickly on problems that used to take a back seat, e.g., mental health.  The lessons we have learned will position us better for future pandemics.
