Patient Experience Day One: Wednesday, 30 September 2020

Wednesday, March 25th, 2020

12:30 PM Thinking Outside the Box: Is health system innovation really influenced by patient engagement?

Everyone is driven to improve patient engagement in healthcare, but is this really the solution to health system innovation? Paul will get us thinking outside the box to consider whether a revised approach to patient engagement is necessary to radically innovate and improve our health system.

Learn about:
  • Denmark’s unconventional healthcare system, which is based on the principles of free and equal access to healthcare for all citizens and is ranked as one of the best systems in the World
  • Evidence of the conundrum: Does customer input in the design and improvement of their systems truly transforms healthcare?
  • Maintaining an important balance of continuous improvement and the associated need for patient engagement with radical innovation in healthcare

This panel will discuss:
  • Innovative mobile health solutions that are transforming the way GPs manage patients with chronic disease, including self-care monitoring, self-education and fitness apps/ wearables
  • The privacy breach debate: How much of our privacy are we willing to give up for apps that lack scientific validation?
  • Whether apps are improving clinical health outcomes, with examples of international best practice for health management apps from the US
