15.00-15.30: Creating healthcare by default / 

Prof. Dr. Koen Kas, healthcare futurist, CEO, Healthskouts:

What if personal health could be created? If we could build a world in which people get sick no more. Delight thinking, removing  frictions  by applying  emerging digital technologies and design ideas, is the magic secret. I’ll show how that works. I’ll introduce our Personal Digital Twin, our digital  guardian  angel,  care  companion  and  permanent personal  assistant. I  show how digital health applications allow us to access an almost untapped resource of data which will lead us into a new era of real personalized care and prevention.

15.30-15.40: Ending childhood obesity by data-driven whole-of-community approach 

Dr. Peter Bergsten, Program lead, Swelife, Prof. at Uppsala University:

In Sweden maintaining the population healthy is becoming increasingly difficult with increasing number of unhealthy individuals and health budgets. Prevention has the capacity to revert these negative trends. However, in order to be sustainable prevention needs to engage multiple actors in society long-term which is challenging.

To address this challenge the national initiative “Ending Childhood Obesity” (ECHO) was initiated in 2020 by the Swedish strategic health innovation program Swelife. During the first year ECHO has engaged a comprehensive partnership of national, regional and local governing bodies, universities and institutes, patient organizations, NGOs and representatives of the public and private sector. ECHO has concluded that, firstly, changing society towards prevention requires system transformation. Secondly, municipalities and their regions offer the needed complexity of actors and will be used as testbed. Thirdly, system transformation will be followed by collecting data at different levels of society, data which will be analyzed and used to develop and optimize strategies to transform society towards prevention.

15.40-16.00: How to transform into a “wall-less” open, data driven hospital fit for innovation and with focus on prevention

Andrew Proctor, Senior Director of Enterprise Analytics, Medical Operations Division, Cleveland Clinic:

How to collaborate with partners in the included chains (internal/external) and patients in a data driven hospital setting? Stressing the need for strategic considerations with regard to data: different tasks/roles/responsibilities in a regional network, cooperation with commercial partners, etc.
