The New Healthcare Experience

Bringing the Patient of One vision to Life 


On 18th May, 2021 the IDC Healthcare Executive summit looked at Putting into practice the lessons learned during the crisis to bring innovation at scale is the mission for European healthcare organizations for 2021. Traditional hospital-centric models failed during the covid-19 pandemic. Organizations in the healthcare sector need to change and digital has proven to be a key factor driving effective change.

From telehealth and remote patient monitoring services to AI-enabled diagnosis support, during the pandemic digital helped to change the healthcare systems, the experience for patients and the healthcare workforce alike. Digital brought the two experiences together, aligning the new patient front door with the clinical workflow, synchronizing virtual and in-person care delivery, driving empathy further, advancing in the Patient of One vision.

Healthcare executives and healthcare professionals are now under pressure to seize this once in a lifetime opportunity to use digital to rebound, remodel and reinvent organizations and patient care.

We would like to invite you to watch the on-demand recording of this event where we will look at how healthcare organizations that will thrive in the healthcare next normal will be those focusing on reinventing the end-to-end experience for patients and the healthcare workforce.

We hope you enjoy watching this on demand recording and we look forward to see you at the IDC Healthcare Summit in 2022!
