Healthcare is the latest super-industry to be disrupted. The Chief Innovation Officer Summit is a great forum to put that specific area of innovation in the spotlight
New York, New York (PRWEB) November 19, 2015
Despite some amazing advances in medical treatment, developed countries are still desperately in need of restructuring. Preventable medical errors are often overlooked, yet reportedly occur in 10% of hospitalisation cases in the UK and are the third biggest killer in the USA.
The three main types of innovation in healthcare are consumer focused, technology based and business model based. Rising costs and increasing patient expectations have put real pressure on the healthcare sector to use technology whenever possible. Simple transitions like the adoption of electronic health records have saved billions of dollars and increased the security of patient information, not to mention the efficiency when obtaining these records.
Busy Burr, Vice President of Innovation at Humana will be presenting on day one of the Summit, providing insight into how they’re growing their ‘return on health’. Busy defines new practices being implementing and how they’re shifting the overall healthcare experience to enhance the value to customers as opposed to the volume of them.
Another big trend is consumerism in healthcare - people are now questioning century old practices. The delivery of certain processes is no longer up to scratch and, because of new technology, innovative and non-traditional providers are now challenging “outdated” methods. How is an organization like Kaiser Permanente, built on 7 decades of traditional healthcare delivery, continuing to innovate and lead in today's healthcare delivery? Chief Innovation and Transformation Officer Tad Funahashi tells us more in his presentation ‘Taking on Transformation’ on day two.
Ahead of the event, Richard Angus, lead conference organiser for the summit, examines 5 Companies That Will Change Healthcare Forever and how they’re revolutionising medical care. ‘Healthcare is the latest super-industry to be disrupted. The Chief Innovation Officer Summit is a great forum to put that specific area of innovation in the spotlight, and we’re looking forward to discussing it with a more cross-industrial audience’.
