Virtual care, big health data, and tech advancements such as robotics, 3D printing, nanotechnology and blockchain are disrupting a system that is known to change very, very slowly, if at all. And while medical advancements just keep coming, how are the world’s managers and designers of the overall infrastructure coping?
After all, in the midst of this sea change, there are serious and compelling questions that need to be asked and answered, and in many cases, the answers will be driven by deeply held cultural values that vary place to place: Is the patient finally taking centre stage or are they being forgotten in all the data? How do we ensure that all people have equitable access to new health technologies regardless of geographic location, socio-economic status and socio-cultural positioning? How can our health care leaders speed innovation while safeguarding privacy and security? How are we mitigating job losses and changes of roles and responsibilities within the system?
The multi-disciplinary work taking place today in health care policy, practice and research fields will have far-reaching implications for all humans.
