Mastering Digital Healthcare Transformation
Markus Karras  
Dear ehealth week visitor,
This year Accenture's program during eHealth week will focus on the impact of digital disruption on healthcare, and success factors for mastering the digital-enabled change. How can IT leaders give doctors greater authority in shaping digital systems that work for (both of) them?
What are the digital design guidelines that will help patients and carers’ in managing their lives and workflows? How can IT leaders create a Healthy Healthcare IT Ecosystem around their core systems, including niche providers and near shore delivery centers?
These are some key questions we'd like to tackle with you in Riga. Please scan our list of sessions below - you are hereby cordially invited to attend. Please sign up and reserve your seat at our registration page. We'd be delighted if you visit our hospitality lounge to meet, discuss and network.

Industry Programme Session
Physician Authority - The Key to Digital Healthcare Transformation.
Beyond buy-in: how to ensure clinician ownership of digital-enabled change.
David Champeaux, Healthcare Strategy Lead, Accenture UK and Ireland
While much has (rightly) been made of patient-centric healthcare, physicians remain at the epicenter of the system. Whether interacting with patients, or adopting digital healthcare systems and processes, there can be no digital transformation without physician buy-in.
Join this Industry Program Session with Accenture Health Industry Executive David Champeaux to explore clinicians' status as customers and consumers in their own right. The session will include insights from the latest Accenture Doctors Survey, detailing current physician perceptions of EMRs and the extent to which they have embraced new digital patient engagement technologies and telemedicine, with some real life examples.

Service Design Workshop
Designing for the Delivery of Healthcare.
Approaches to improve the quality of care through design and innovation.
Teemu Äijälä, Service Design Director @Fjord
How patients and carers have leveraged digital technologies to interact and collaborate with each other and manage their actions has been largely spotty and transactional if at all.
The rapid evolution of technology and advances in service design enable more natural interactions and digital-enabled workflows.
It is a shift from commands to conversations. Digital technologies hold great promise for innovation in health and social care delivery models.
But to succeed, digital solutions need to be explicitly designed into patients and carers' workflows and lives, as opposed to engineered and deployed on top of workflows.
Join Teemu Äijälä and Riz Haque from Fjord for an interactive session on how design and digital solutions can lead to healthcare delivery transformation.

Digital Disruption Workshop
How Digital Technologies Can Radically Lower Healthcare Costs and Raise its Benefits.
Kaveh T. Safavi, Global Managing Director, Accenture Health, USA
Digital technology holds promise to radically impact the cost of care by making healthcare more productive, not just more efficient.
Technology can be used to improve the way care is delivered by moving work to patients, other workers or even to machines.
These same solutions also hold the promise of giving patients more control, personalization and transparency. That means reducing the cost of care while increasing its benefits at the same time.
Join Kaveh T. Safavi, Global Managing Director, Accenture Health, for an interactive session on how digital disruption changes healthcare.

Integration Workshop
Tips for Managing a Healthy Healthcare IT Ecosystem.
Is the complexity of integration preventing you from incorporating innovative solutions into your core health systems?
You've seen amazing functionality from a host of niche providers at the latest Healthcare IT conference you attended.
You'd love to implement a few gems into your overall healthcare system to deliver benefits to your citizens, but the complexity of integrating a small niche system with your core EMR system creates more headaches than it cures.
Join Accenture's Thomas Smedsrud, Alessandro Campana and Craig Oates for insights into the "how?" of combining your large healthcare applications with niche, innovative solutions.
