With the patient in the driver’s seat – how to use DATA to create more value in healthcare.

Speaker: Nasim Farrokhnia, MD PhD MBASR Industry Advisor/Healthcare Executive Microsoft Western Europe, Chair of eHealth Doctors, part of Swedish Medical Association

Key messages of the presentation:

  • Increase Quality of Care with Data, for example we can apply AI machine learning and NLPs to find patterns/correlations and build algorithms and Decision support tools to nudge clinicians and patients to more patient safe actions.
  • Provide more Value to Patients by Digitalization of Healthcare, for example through user-friendliness (UX), accessibility, co-creation, and RPAs (automations). Plus, how to enable for businesses to arise and to grow.  
  • Healthcare Data Interoperability is essential - through international standards (FIHR, OpenEHR, SNOMED) – to fill the gaps between the “silos” and connect solutions into integrated entities, not least addressed by the purpose of EHDS (European Health Data Space).
  • Change Management a must-have. We need to create new processes – which means new ways of delivering healthcare and a challenge for our clinicians. How can we better engage and incentivize them to be an active part in this transformation?
