Revolutionising the Healthcare Industry

Australian Healthcare Week

The healthcare landscape is changing at a rapid pace and we are witnessing unsustainable pressure being placed on an already stretched system and in turn, the workforce.

In response to the challenges faced, we are seeing the implementation of various new technologies in an attempt to increase operational efficiency, patient safety and ultimately, better care outcomes.

The free to attend Disrupt Healthcare program at the 2017 Australian Healthcare Week Expo will explore the disruptive technologies and medical innovations that are set to revolutionise healthcare delivery in our digitally enabled healthcare system of the future, and the new models of care required to respond to the healthcare challenge of 2020 and beyond!

Nick Abrahams, Partner at Norton Rose, will discuss his healthcare vision for 2025, understanding how healthcare technologies and trends will transform Australia’s healthcare system. He will cover some stimulating points including the healthcare shift from reactive to preventive, consumer driven technology enabled health and digitally enabled coordinated healthcare to name a few.

Artificial Intelligence (Al) has also been taking the healthcare industry by storm, offering revolutionising solutions. Harpreet Singh Buttar, analyst at Frost & Sullivan says, “By 2025, Al systems could be involved in everything from population health management, to digital avatars capable of answering specific patient queries.” With large amounts of data sourced from Electronic Medical Records, Al systems have the potential to provide clinicians with quality information that can reduce treatment costs, eliminate unnecessary hospital procedures with easier hospital workflows, and provide patient centric treatment plans. Deputy Director of Software & Technology Innovation Lab, Rajesh Vasa at Deakin University will delve into the major catalyst for change that will revolutionise healthcare delivery and challenge ideas on what it means to be human at the Disrupt Healthcare program.
