Day One Round Table

Afternoon, Oct 15th, Time TBC

Digitalisation and its Impact on The Future of Healthcare Leadership

The healthcare sector is constantly changing. Digitalisation is at the forefront of that change.

  • How do we engage the right leadership to lead the change? Should we fish for transformational talent within the NHS, or should it be brought in from the outside?

  • As collaboration becomes key to designing and delivering solutions, what are the skills and cultural shifts required for the health service to adapt?

  • Will increasing diversity at the leadership level be a core part of the digitalisation strategy?

  • What does diversity mean? Gender diversity? Diversity of thought? How do we measure this concept?

Day Two Round Table

11 – 12 am, Oct 16th

The Place of Human Empathy in an Artificially Intelligent Healthcare System

As the healthcare sector continues to strive for a more positive patient experience, leaders will need to leverage technology, including AI, machine learning and predictive analytics. But how does human empathy fit in to this evolution in our healthcare models?

  • How do we leverage AI without losing the necessary component of human empathy that is crucial to the patient experience?

  • Do AI applications have the ability to mimic empathy, and if so, will it be enough?

  • How does the healthcare sector convince society that AI applications will lead to tangible improvements in patient outcomes, and allay the mystery and distrust that currently surround the industry?

  • What are the practical considerations around introducing cutting edge technology to the health service? Is it possible to digitalise without major system disruption and cultural transformation?
