“SHUSH Topics” and the Infamous Unmentionables – Speakers and All Demos

We all know what we need to do to lead a healthier life: stop smoking, drink (red wine) with moderation, follow a balanced diet, increase our exercise, manage our stress… So why are we not all following these recommendations? Because life gets in the way of our good intentions in the shape of “umentionables”: caring for a loved one, being in a bad relationship, facing a difficult job situation, desperately trying to get pregnant… This session factors these situations in a more holistic conversation about our health and showcases solutions that help us counter these “unmentionables”.

Post Modern EHRs

Tomaž Gornik will be running this session about opening up data systems to integration at several levels and moving beyond « monolithic solutions », a major key to adoption and scaling up for professional facing solutions.

Data Analytics: Structuring Information for Decision Making – Speakers and All Demos

BIG data has made many recent headlines. Streamlined clinical processes, accelerated research and development, value-based healthcare implementations: the promises are huge for improving clinical and financial outcomes. And in many cases it also provides an answer to the question: “who will pay for Health 2.0 solutions?”. However, BIG is too often synonymous of “useless”. This session focuses on open, smart and actionable data and showcases technologies that structure information for decision-making.

The Unmentionables

For the seventh installment of the Unmentionables, we made the argument that what used to be taboo may now finally be gaining the attention it deserves…topics like sex, divorce, death of a loved one, a bad boss – everyday new evidence arises that these life factors don’t just influence health – they can define it. With the silver tsunami so too will come new challenges – and opportunities…like the isolating grip of caregiver stress, financial fraud and abuse of seniors, and the opportunity to do death well. If the definition of health needs to be expanded to include life because when life goes wrong, health goes wrong – then maybe the ultimate disease management program would be the one that got you a job. We talked about all that – plus the role empathy can (MUST) have in consumer driven design.

The Long and Winding Road to Adoption

In this session we examined the barriers to digital health adoption in the EU and what strategies health care organizations and startups can utilize to support a more connected, informed, and intuitive health care system.
