Bringing together leading healthcare executives from across Europe, the United States, Canada and Israel, Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer hosted an international summit to discuss the future challenges facing hospitals. Participants came out of the summit with a jointly developed action plan that identifies the key elements and essential next steps that hospitals will need to focus upon in the years ahead.
The Sheba Summit 2018, which took place October 21 to October 25, was centered around the theme “The Future Hospital: Setting Strategies for 2030 and Beyond.” This gathering of global healthcare innovators and leaders was designed to facilitate in-depth discussions about the challenges facing academic hospitals in the coming years and the transforming roles and responsibilities of healthcare institutions.
Summit participants represented prestigious healthcare organizations including the Federation of American Hospitals, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Erasmus Medical Center, University of Pennsylvania Health System and many more. This was the first time this group has gathered, but it will not be the last; participants plan to carry on this mission through ongoing communication and collaboration to ensure future success.
Throughout the conference, participants were actively involved in multiple workshops that addressed developing medical professions, the evolving role of hospital systems and how hospitals can expand community-based patient care. Participants also had the chance to experience cutting-edge technologies currently being developed in Israel that will shape the future of the health and medical industry. In addition to the academic portion of the conference, all summit participants were offered exclusive VIP tours of Israel.
“Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer is proud to be a pioneer in the healthcare industry. We were honored to host such a high-quality and innovative group of senior healthcare executives from across the world to discuss how we can help one another build the hospital of the future,” said Prof. Yitshak Kreiss, Director General of Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer. “At Sheba Medical Center’s City of Health, we endeavor to be at the forefront of medical care. Collaborative conferences such as this summit allow us to work together to provide the most effective healthcare possible, today and in the future.”
Charles N. Kahn III, President and Chief Executive Officer of Federation of American Hospitals and Summit Co-Chairman, said: "We all agree we can't predict the future, but we know digitalization and medical science is advancing very quickly. And while digitalization and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are going to change the way we address patient care, we cannot lose sight of the fact that the essence of healthcare is compassion with a human touch... The sharing of these challenging ideas at the Sheba International Summit will now serve as a powerful foundation for ongoing discussions between us going forward."
