A NEW KIND OF AN OPEN INNOVATION EVENT THAT HELPS HEALTHCARE ECOSYSTEM SOLVE TOUGH TECHNICAL AND BUSINESS CHALLENGES TOGETHER

WHY

 

Organizations across the Healthcare industry feel the need to deliver better healthcare outcomes and to relieve pressure on limited resources. In the context of static business models and substantial regulatory burden, a new level of creativity and collaboration is necessary to successfully innovate, and to unlock the promise of (digital) technologies.

 

 

ABOUT

 

Hack Healthcare is an Open Innovation event aimed at creating ingenious, unorthodox solutions for the Healthcare industry. Its purpose is to help you to come up with new ideas, to explore new business models and new technologies, and to immediately test these ideas with your fellow participants. You’ll also forge new collaborations to help you start implementing your ideas the day after the event.

THEMES AND CHALLENGES OF HACK HEALTHCARE 2020 EDITION

Personalized Prevention (hosted by Roche)
Connect technology, data/RWE, and HCPs to create innovative personalized prevention services.

CHALLENGES

  • Better explain healthcare reality and recommended choices to healthy citizens and patients need to make for healthier lifestyles through transforming how the diagnoses and recommendations are delivered from doctors to patients with storytelling and data. Expand the application of readily available patient information tools.
  • Investigate the opportunities to incentivize healthy citizens to carry out regular check-ups through collaboration with health insurers, employers, and more traditional healthcare actors.
  • Motivate healthy citizens and patients to collect and share more healthcare data with HCPs and other healthcare ecosystem players by demonstrating usefulness of data (as well as with behavioral and financial incentives)
Beyond Telemedicine
Explore new technology applications for patient monitoring and decision support for HCPs; develop business models for novel telemedicine use cases.

CHALLENGES

  • Define a reimbursement framework for Telemedicine based on real-world evidence and economical data needed, knowing that this is a rapidly evolving field (avoid over-regulation).
  • Explore opportunities to move routine interactions between patients and HCPs to telemedicine.
  • Enable the patient (supported by other stakeholders) to define how much telemedicine (teleconsultations, telemonitoring, data from consumer devices, etc.) is included in the consultation path.
Data Value Chains
Construct new data value chains for collecting and sharing patient data and data from novel sources on request from HCPs, as well as for other applications such as clinical trials.

CHALLENGES

  • Combining medical patient data from a variety of sources and sharing it between primary care, hospitals, home care and care homes for better management of patient outcomes: technical aspects (quality, compatibility and analytics), managing data ownership and permissions to access.
  • Collect and optimize medical and technical patient data for sharing towards pharmaceutical and medtech companies through a central hub while ensuring fair (and GDPR-compliant) remuneration to patients and to the sources of clean, quality data.
  • Using data from a variety of sources (medical, technical, administrative and other specialist software) inside a hospital for optimizing allocation of human and material resources inside a hospital – insights, dashboards, action recommendations.
Alternative financing models
Identify and develop new possibilities to finance accelerated implementation of digital healthcare innovation and prevention.

CHALLENGES

  • Build a new model for alternative sources of financing innovative digital healthcare tools, such as insurance or employers.
  • Establish a new business model for primary care practitioners focused on prevention, such as pay-for-performance.
  • Science-driven tracking of better outcomes to reduce overall healthcare costs based on consolidated healthcare data

IN-PERSON EVENTS FOR THE POST-COVID-19 ERA

Experience shows that online events do not provide the kind of human connection and collaborative creativity necessary for a successful innovation experience.

Hack Healthcare will take place in person with full range of precautions: number of participants within permitted limits, disposable masks and hand gels, overnight cleaning, etc.

In case tightened regulations make the events impossible on their scheduled dates, the events will be postponed by approximately 3 months.
