Hospital and Community Care
Technologies have been implemented in hospital and community setting and paved the way to remote monitoring, intervention and follow-up. Some of the technologies were incorporated in the existing workflows and in some cases, new workflows were designed. The implementation process included technologies fine-tuning and adaptation, creation of new care models and consideration of legal (privacy) challenges. The human factor was challenged and lessons are learned for future care.
Isolation and homecare were prioritized as no face-to-face appointments were possible. New healthcare services were implemented to diagnose, treat and follow-up patients at home and special patient groups such as mental health patients, elderly, children and individuals being hospitalized at home received special attention within the homecare setting. However, the relevance of these services to daily routine care, using the homecare setting, remains if not increases and lessons learned should be implemented in the design of present/future homecare services.
Education of Next Generation of Healthcare Professionals, Health-tech Developers & Entrepreneurs
The use of technologies and re-design of healthcare services raised the need for new skills among healthcare professionals as well as close collaboration of multidisciplinary teams in design, development and implementation of new technologies in healthcare. In particular, it calls for a new approach to research and development (R&D) of healthcare products and services that include a shorter product life cycle and regulation adaptation. The importance of data-driven care was raised significantly and thus the need for AI-based platforms collecting, analyzing and validating healthcare data in real-time for clinical purposes, especially personalized treatment.
Yet, the healthcare professionals and the industry require additional skills to face the emerging challenges in healthcare. How can we provide healthcare professionals with the necessary knowledge and tools to cope with these challenges? How can we better educate the next generation of physicians, nurses and technology experts to deal with future challenges?
