How to shape a healthier future
Date: May 2, 2017
Healthcare has seen great advances in the recent decades. However, today's system is inefficient, and it faces intense cost pressures leading to staff shortages, high burnout rates, long waiting times, and health inequities. At the same time, society dreams of personalized care for everyone, everywhere, and at any time. Emerging technologies bear the promise of bringing us closer to that goal. Yet, healthcare is among the least digitized of all industries. Dr. Sven Jungmann discusses the threats to sustainability and highlight the main visions for making healthcare personalized, more efficient, and fairer.
