Quality meets Sustainability: Partners for the future

Tuesday 26 • 10 • 2021

Programme overview

The organisation of healthcare is going through a period of rapid change, fuelled by several drivers and breakthrough innovations. Of these, the transition to more integrated care is undoubtedly one that will have a profound impact on how we organise our hospitals in the future. Managing the quality of these integrated care processes will pose several challenges, given the fact that they will span several levels of care, and that they will require multidisciplinary cooperation and smart investments in new technology.

The implementation of the UN’s SDGs and the sustainability of high quality of care should be considered in several decisions that have to be made when building and organising the hospital of the future, as will be discussed in a number of sessions:

Strategic design and planning of future hospitals

Hospitals and other care providers will simultaneously evolve into high-tech integration hubs and guest houses. How will future designs anticipate new expectations from patients, their kin, and their caregivers’? It’s not only about bricks & mortar, care processes and data requirements are changing significantly. Will the next generation of hospital control centres be sustainable enough to deal with this radical shift?

Managing the hospital of the future

Business models of hospitals need to be dynamic and flexible in today’s VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world. Are we ready to rethink our traditional management processes? Disease-specific case management will become a key requirement. How can we match the complexity of integrated care with financial sustainability? Last but not least, how can we facilitate the scale-up of innovations to provide an attractive, innovative, and rewarding work environment for our caregivers?
