The EIT Health Think Tank – our thought leadership forum – brings healthcare leaders together to prepare the ground for life-changing innovation and identify the next opportunity for a step-change in how healthcare is delivered. We collaborate across disciplines and borders to explore and assess the most pressing topics impacting healthcare innovation today.
Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare
Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides huge potential to remodel healthcare. We’re focusing on the changes needed to fully embrace AI; from workforce efficiency to healthcare organisation and system integration, so that healthcare systems can reap the rewards offered by AI and improve their sustainability.Find out more
Optimising Innovation Pathways
Innovative ideas, products and services often require new approaches to help them to reach patients and citizens. We’re identifying the barriers and opportunities now, to streamline innovation pathways and speed-up market entry for emerging solutions.Find out more
Value-based healthcare (VBHC) offers a rethink in the way that healthcare providers pay for resources such as medicines and equipment. VBHC helps create more efficient and sustainable healthcare models by moving away from volume-based payment and towards results-orientated payment.Find out more
Using Big Data to Improve Healthcare
Health data now comprises large and complex digital datasets. By meticulously collecting and managing data securely, we can gain profound insight into diseases, which will improve healthcare in many ways; from predicting epidemics to avoiding preventable deaths from chronic disease.Find out more
How do we explore these topics?
We explore them through meaningful dialogue with both internal and external experts in the respective fields. To facilitate this dialogue and its findings, EIT Health drives a range of activities; from our Round Table Series, to publications, opinion pieces and discussion videos.
Through our Round Table Series we invite multidisciplinary regional and national leaders in healthcare to discuss a topic high on the European health innovation agenda. Research gathered throughout this process is collated with Round Table discussions and published as reports.
What's new in Think Tank?
Explore our interactive ‘Transforming healthcare with AI’ Hub where you can view the ideas, debate and hot topics from our latest Think Tank 2020 Round Table Series: Healthcare Workforce and Organisational Transformation with AI – Enacting Change. The content in each virtual ‘room’ centres on one of six key domains identified as levers for change to drive greater acceptance and utility of AI within healthcare – from leadership, to risk management, to policy – culminating in our final report. As new content becomes available, new rooms will light up, ready to explore.
