Health and wellness is big business and is increasingly becoming everyone’s business. New sectors are entering the healthcare space: encouraging us to adopt healthier lifestyles and behaviours and catering for the appetite to take greater control of our health. This is good news for struggling health services. Meeting the demand for care in the face of an ageing, better educated, Google-savvy, multi-morbid public is too much for healthcare to solve alone. A shift to prevention, involving collaborating with other sectors, governments, and citizens in a life course approach to health and wellbeing, is the way ahead. How do we leverage advances in AI, data and technology, to drive innovative public health interventions and techniques? How far can nations go to encourage and incentivise behavioural change and – with COVID-19 restrictions sparking protests across the world – where do you draw the line? Gathering an inspiring mix of panellists, this session will delve into these issues.
- Understand the need for digital solutions to support and enable behaviour change.
- Learn about examples of innovative data and technology-driven approaches to behaviour change, feature novel techniques such as gamification.
- Recognise when public health intervention for the greater good risks overstepping the mark and intruding on individuals’ rights to freedom and privacy.
