Healthcare leaders from Scandinavia will gather to discuss the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) to transform healthcare during a regional Think Tank Round Table meeting on the topic of “Healthcare Workforce and Organisational Transformation with AI – Enacting Change”.
The EIT Health Think Tank brings together diverse groups of leaders in healthcare, from across disciplines and borders to prepare the ground for life-changing innovation and identify the next opportunity for a step-change in how healthcare is delivered. Each year, the Think Tank explores and assesses the most pressing topics impacting healthcare innovation today. Round Tables held around Europe gather the expertise, ideas and new approaches in various regions. A final report is then prepared to present joint recommendations from all the Round Tables.
Think Tank 2020:
Healthcare Workforce and Organisational Transformation with AI – Enacting Change
Following the publication of a joint pan-EU report between EIT Health and McKinsey & Company, ‘Transforming healthcare with AI: the impact on the workforce and organisations’, key participants from our Europe-wide network will now further explore how these recommendations could be translated at the national level as part of our 2020 Round Table Series. Research and Round Table discussions will take place across seven regions in Europe from September-November, and will explore barriers and enablers for the successful adoption of AI at a member state level, and on-the-ground impact of AI. The Round Tables will ultimately help to outline a national plan of action to accelerate the integration of AI in healthcare.
