Event description

Description

The digitalisation process can no longer be stopped. More and more areas of our daily life are supported by digital devices, and those devices are more and more connected to each other. This also has a major impact on the health sector, which nowadays is subject to constant change and will have to be fundamentally reorganized in the future.

In Austria, digitalisation within the health sector has already become reality, for instance by introducing the e-card 2005 or ELGA 2016. The digitalisation of the health care sector offers a vast range of opportunities (reduction of costs for care and support by Ambient Assisted Living, new and better diagnostic and treatment possibilities through data analysis and Open Data, virtual doctor visits, mobile sensing and wearables) but also introduces risks and uncertainties (misuse of health data, the transparent patient, intelligent algorithms serving as a better (?) doctor, liability issues when using diagnostic algorithms).

In addition, biomedical data may enable and foster a whole series of new business models; established companies aim for improving existing services or offering novel products and services; start-ups benefit from openly available data that can yield significant added value through innovative analysis, captivating visualizations or a completely new and disruptive understanding of the application domain.

Currently, however, it seems that our health care system may no longer be financed in the long term without advanced digitalisation in the health sector.

For this reason, Know-Center, together with Human.technology Styria, is targeting relevant health sector core aspects within the event “Digitalisation in the Healthcare Sector” by means of keynotes and a subsequent World Cafe.
Discuss with decision-makers and experts from the fields of health care and in particular Ambient Assisted Living, Security, Data Analysis, Usability, Sensor Technology and Telemedicine.
