Regulation: friend or foe? (Regulation)

Regulation. It's a word that perhaps most businesses fear to hear, especially startups that need to be agile to get ahead of their competition. In the medical industry, regulation is involved in every nook and cranny. From regulating pharmaceuticals and medical devices to regulating healthcare professionals and radiation doses. And yes, this is understandable as in healthcare we are dealing with human lives day in, day out. It stands to reason then that in health tech, regulation is also paramount and whilst it can act like a foe at times, it can be a startup's greatest friend.

Digital Health Economics. Does it make sense?

Healthcare is expensive, a bottomless pit. It becomes costlier every year. So does it make sense to invest in all of this technological infrastructure? We think that the return on investment is good for several technological deployments such as automated scheduling, triage and customer care amongst many others and that healthcare institutions will save money in the long term. But don't take our word for it. That's why we brought you the experts.

Data Driven Health (Clinical/Tech)

Data-driven technologies are set to transform the way that healthcare is delivered as well as how we manage our health. The amount of data that we are gathering from technologies such as wearable devices, mobile apps and intelligent monitoring devices, provide an opportunity for healthcare systems to harness patient data to support a healthier future for patients and the public. We are on the brink of moving from reactive to preventative medicine.

With the increasing shift towards owning your data and taking control of your health, the case for a PHR is ever increasing.

So is the time up for the EHR?

Wearables, disrupting healthcare monitoring (Clinical/Scientific)

Wearable use has increased dramatically recently with the uptake in the population set to increase further as more start-ups and tech giants alike are eyeing this space. These wearable devices, especially those with medical-grade certification, are encouraging users to become more engaged in their health, and by doing so pushing data-driven delivery of healthcare. Wearables may be an important step in shifting care from reactive to proactive (preventative).

Clinical cancer data is crammed full of sensitive personal data and therefore impossible to share between clinical research organizations. Can the solution be using generative adversarial networks (GAN) to create synthetic data?

“Putting the patient at the centre of The HealthCare Ecosystem” by UMANA

The paradigm shift of concepts such as "hospital at home" are becoming the standardized way of how the healthcare system is responding to our current times . This is further encouraged with new regulations and reimbursement schemes to make sure that everyone adheres to this new move . Technologies such a "telemonitoring" and "telediagnosis" are becoming a crucial part of these services , however the medical and other caring professionals are crucial for all this to work.

AI in diagnostics: Are we there yet? (Clinical/Scientific)

Media sensationalism has once again probably overhyped technology. We can't deny that AI is making huge strides in imaging but articles on news outlets seem to suggest that AI is imminently going to replace Radiologists. Lack of appropriate validation coupled with lack of clinical implementation/trials may suggest otherwise. So, are we there yet?

Bringing AI out of the Lab and into the Hands of Medical Professionals

AI has improved a lot of different sectors globally. Now it's time for it to revolutionize healthcare but if it remains siloed on its own never making it into the hands of clinicians it will be of no use. Hence it is time to discuss how we can bring AI safely into the hands of our clinicians.

Human and machine: how do we envisage working together to provide care?

Just like any polarising argument, there are always two sides to every coin. Whilst some individuals argue that AI will in the future replace human healthcare workers because who doesn't want a doctor that makes no mistakes? Others argue that AI will never match the cognitive abilities of a human mind and even more so the emotional intelligence of humans. After all, everyone wants a nice and caring doctor at their bedside, no? We will explore both of these viewpoints and see if the reality is a middle ground between both.

We tend to go on and on about how new technologies are going to improve the patient care pathway and how they are going to improve patient's lives - don't get us wrong, there is nothing wrong with that. However, we need to also be open to input and criticism from the key stakeholders, patients. So how can we work together with patients to build the best health systems we can?

Telemedicine in General Practice

Telemedicine has been long present before COVID although we can all agree that COVID has highlighted its importance. Over the past year or so Telemedicine has changed and adapted. Is it still as important in the post-COVID world? We also mostly see telemedicine as a diagnostic tool with most providers promoting it as such. However, in most cases a clinical consult ends in a prescription of sorts, so how should this be tackled? Does pharma have a place in telemedicine?

Always connected health systems. The emerging hybrid care model. (Clinical/Tech)

We've said it before and we'll say it again, as bleak as COVID is, at least the digital health industry has received the recognition it deserves both from governments as well as from the general public. Healthcare systems have adapted quickly to COVID through virtual consultations, telemonitoring and the use of intelligent systems. We must acknowledge though that we will never go back to the pre-COVID healthcare delivery method but rather we will have renewed healthcare models that should attend to the needs of the young and the old.

Hexitime - Learn how banking time will revolutionise the way you improve yourself, your team and your service

For many years, people in healthcare have been asking for ways to exchange improvement skills and ideas in an open and collaborative environment. Some people want to learn from improvement work in other organisations whilst others want to pick the brains of subject matter experts irrespective of their location or seniority. Some want to support project teams that develop an idea in an area of their special interest or source 'hard to find' skills that could ignite programmes within their own organisations. Others simply gain a huge sense of satisfaction passing on their knowledge to others whilst many more have a demand for a specific skill to progress their improvement work. Hexitime is an elegant solution that responds to all of these needs.

Why every healthcare professional and/or company should have a MICROBIOME strategy

Description and cooperation opportunities across EU and North Africa: Just like the immune system, the microbiome will be part of every serious patient anamnesis and a factor to consider patient stratification and treatment. The amount of data generated from a microbiome analysis need to be properly generated and interpretated trough sophisticated algorithms and machine learning programs. Some indications will benefit from stand-alone live biotherapeutic product, but even more will improve existing treatment strategies based on microbiome analysis or adjuvant treatment. That is why every Healthcare company and/or professional should understand how the microbiome affects their indications and treatments and what strategy is best for them to address this challenge. We see the strength of The BioArte in our deep understanding of this new but ancient approach that can strongly support companies and medical doctors in their personalised treatments. It is time to realise that Homo Sapiens has been replaced by an ‘’ Homo Bactericus”

Digitalisation of Pharmaceutical Regulation

Digital transformation of pharmaceutical regulation reflects the value creation processes in the fourth industrial revolution as reflected in industry 4.0. Cyber-physical systems, such as smart machines, the use of modern control systems, embedding of an internet address to connect and internet of things reflect how the regulators should view digitalization. One has to consider that regulation does not serve as a barrier to this paradigm shift in pharmaceutical processes while at the same time one needs to recognize the social, economical and ethical implications.

Ultimately, it allows medical students and junior doctors to apply their knowledge and learn from their mistakes whilst improving their competencies.

Sea of Tranquillity: Palliative Care and VR (Clinical/Scientific)

Palliation has become one of the cornerstones of management for the terminally ill. It is directed at easing the severity of a pain or a disease in those cases where no cure exists. Medical students are always thought of the biopsychosocial approach, the interconnection between biology, psychology, and socio-environmental factors which reminds us to not only view end of life care as simply removing physical pain. VR can be an important tool palliation and alleviating suffering.

PEM, one piece of the Dementia Puzzle

Dementia can be debilitating for both the patient as well as his carers. Unfortunately, sometimes due to wandering patients are stopped from being active due to fear of the risk of injury and fatality. It becomes increasingly difficult to have a carer constantly by the patient's side but through a PEM system, which uses sensor-based monitoring, Dr Attard believes that we could give a leap in the quality of life patients with dementia have.

It is unfortunate that in the year 2021, the stigma surrounding women’s health is still present causing them to feel embarrassed and end up suffering in silence and ignore concerns about their wellbeing. This should never be the case and we must do more to address it and ultimately break down any taboos. We should be able to talk freely about having menstruation, breastfeeding and contraception. We should be educating and empowering women in their sexual health. We are sure that all of you are in agreement, but what role can technology play in all this?

The future of healthcare is shaping in front of our eyes. From advances happening in AI to 3D-printing, robotics or even nano-technology. Although most of the promising technology is in the research phase and has not yet made it to mainstream clinical care the next 10 years will be pivotal for the integration of these technologies in our clinical workflow. In this panel, we aim to discuss what the year 2030 will look like for healthcare and what challenges we must overcome in the years to come to ensure the vision becomes a reality. From problems with interoperability to convincing patients and healthcare workers to trust these new technologies, this roundtable discussion will cover it all!

The future of Mental Health and its workforce is Digital (Clinical/Scientific)

If COVID-19 showed us one thing it is that mental health should not be taken for granted. It has probably left a world riddled with mental health issues because of isolation, loss of social contact and in the case of our workforce it left scars akin to PTSD. How are we going to tackle this?

Cannabis: The Canadian Experience

"On October 17, 2018, the Cannabis Act came into force, legalizing, strictly regulating and restricting access to cannabis in Canada. The Act implements a new comprehensive public health approach that will be more effective in protecting youth and keeping profits out of the pockets of criminals and organized crime. We will discuss some mistakes of the past, practical implementation of the Cannabis Act in Canada and cannabis usage patterns and problems pre and post legalization."
