Valuebased Healthcare - How, Why and for Whom 10 - 11 October 2017

We share the same ambition of a long and healthy life for ourselves and our neighbors.
We have trusted health systems but see the grounds shaking under it and as much as we need it, it can't survive in its current form – it is expensive and outdated.​

The innovation accelerators as augmented and virtual reality, next generation security, 3D printing, IOT,
Cognitive and Robotics are entering the health arena and are starting to be available at a price and scale
which is attractive and it is time to act. We need to change. The current structure will need a reform, we
need to make necessary technology investments and we need to take important ethical discussions – now.​

Organized by IDC and Adding Edge
