 Consumerization of Healthcare

Room: 1

Date: 25/05


A 20-year-old person does not know anything about the analogical universe. They were born and they will die in the digital universe. They will not buy excuses like “This is the type of care we can provide”, or “this is the day the appointment can take place”. They expect customized care, available at any time anywhere. They are not used to the word “patient”; they are only familiar with the concept of a “consumer”.

Millenials look for healthier life habits, they download Health apps, they access databases, and they do a lot of research to find the perfect health plan, a specialized doctor, the most convenient lab and less dangerous hospitals. They wear wearables, fit devices, mHealth apps, care sensors, and will have video chats with doctors as often as they access their bank accounts.

The industry of healthcare products and services already knows all about this person and realized that consumerization is inevitable. It also realized it is a fast growing market. This is the universe that will be discussed at the Forum.

eHealth Interoperability Challenges

Room: 2

Date: 23/05


Interoperability issues in Healthcare are not new and advances are still not enough. Partially because it is a really complex matter. Although it is a technological matter, it is not only technological.
It requires cooperation between all parties involved, consent & governance rules and win-win motivation for the creation of business agreements. Also, it requires enforcing standards and many safety and privacy tools.

EHRs have never been so widely used as now. But for the patients’ disappointment a great deal of their medical records is still spread, not integrated and hard to be accessed by any player in the Healthcare Industry.

This Theme analyzes the issue, adding criticism to local discussions and new ideas and facts that must be considered in the future.

Demand-driven Pharma

Room: 2

Times have changed for the pharmaceutical industry. In the past just making medications was enough, but challenges are bigger now.

The go news is that the pharmaceutical industry is correctly using those technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, Cognitive Computing and many other applications.

Another important aspect is the growing need to improve and have a better relationship with patients (Demand-driven). The fight for this “intimate relationship” is growing. All these issues are discussed at the Forum.
