Redefining Care Delivery 


In order to provide qualitative and resilient hospital care that meets the needs of the future also a paradigm shift towards preventive care is needed. New models and a re-definition of where and how care is offered could potentially free up the pressure on hospitals and get them focused on the primary task - saving people’s life in a resilient, accurate and effective way.


The digitalization and machine optimism is sometimes so strong that the question of what the human tasks in the future are needs to be raised. It is clear AI, MIoT and ML will revolutionize how clinical care is delivered more accurately, with lower costs and at scale. Other upsides might involve the engagement between the Hospital Professionals and the Patients to deepen. As we get closer to personalised care and precise medicine the attraction of the profession probably continues to be on the rise.

NORDIC PANEL: Change management in Future Hospitals





Coffee break


10:40-12:10  Theme 2. 




Expectations on service are about to change regardless if you like it or not. From the grey panthers to Millennials, today's technology-centric environment is changing the way consumers engage in healthcare. A situation further complicated by generational differences.

If and when care is moved closer to the patient - digitally, to homes, alternative locations, self monitoring etc  - it affects and has consequences on current Hospital Projects and widens possibilities in current premises. How will shifts in customer behavior match the services in Hospitals and how should processes change to become patient driven and to what cost? Can virtual assistance and lobbies be built with empathy and individualism in the center? And if all is possible how is success measured and how do you know you monitor the relevant aspect from the customer point of view?

Lunch break


12:35-14:00 Theme 3. 




To build and design new Hospitals is complex and costs a fortune. Efficiency is needed as much as flexibility and a great dose of vision, wisdom and solid groundwork gets crucial. As the development curve is only steepening the needs of the future is hard to cover. How can these large design projects be future proofed and what qualifies if the project is successful not only from an operational aspect, but also from a socioeconomic aspect?
