Be a Radical Changemaker!

Although COVID-19 has recently accelerated their digital transformation, health systems have been famous for their longer innovation cycles compared to other industries. And when innovation happens, it is rarely as radical as one would hope. Although today we prefer to talk about co-design, a little disruption needs to happen and most of the time it needs to come from the outside. Convening a world-renowned surgeon pioneer, a patient advocate and innovator, and a startup leader, this session will explore how clinicians, patients, caretakers and entrepreneurs have become a real motor for change and a driver for the adoption of radical innovations in our health systems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn from best practice in implementing and embedding innovation into mainstream health systems, organisations and service pathways, working in partnership with industry giants, start-ups and entrepreneurs.
  • Consider what barriers to change were removed to enable far more rapid adoption of innovation in healthcare during COVID-19 and how we can safely continue this faster pace of change beyond the pandemic.
  • Understand the importance of clinical leadership and patient engagement in designing and adopting new technologies and innovations for healthcare.
