Building the best model for digital

What does success look like for providers large or small and how is it achieved?

Speakers include:

Hafid Rifi, CFO, Asklepios
Thomas Hagemeijer, Healthcare Lead, TLGG

This time it’s Personal: Rethinking patient pathways

One-size-fits-all health care delivery is stuck in the past. Using data, genomics and an understanding of each patients specific needs, environment and history and developing a personal care pathway is proving to increase outcomes and lower costs. Payors in markets such as France are starting to fund such an approach, opening up new revenue opportunities. This session evaluates early data from such endeavours and looks at how operators and health systems can scale-up efforts.

Our attendees say

What struck me was the availability of some of the brightest minds in health care and the seamless interaction. I get to meet a whole lot of people in a very fluid way. I would not be able to do that at any other conference that I am aware of.  I’m gonna be following up on quite a few leads. It’s gonna be great in the next few months to bring all of our ideas together.

Ronnie van der Merwe, CEO, Mediclinic International, South Africa/Switzerland/UAE

‘It’s very interesting to meet peers and find out about their plans, exchange best practices and ideas. We can also see on the public side what regulators are planning to do in the future and this is good insight.’

Zisis Sotiriou, Senior VP Regional COO, Affidea, pan-European

‘What struck me is the level of participation – the CEOs and CxOs were here. That makes a big difference. And the learning opportunities. We hear about new technologies, hear about examples from other countries.’

Dilip Jose, Managing Director and CEO, Manipal Hospitals, India

‘The value in coming to HBI is to have in one place, all the CEOs and leaders of healthcare companies that share the same problems even though there are cultural differences and it helps me to understand what are the trends and focus on my goals.’
