Disrupt Healthcare- Onfloor Program Day One: Monday, 20th August 2018

10:20 am - 10:30 am Welcome Address from the Chair

10:30 am - 11:00 am KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Crossing the Technology Generational Divide

Neer Korn - Leading Social Trends & Consumer Insights Expert, .
Nowhere is a generational divide more prominent than when it comes to technology. Consider that today young people have skills and empowerment that older generations could never match. This presentation will immerse the audience in attitudes and trends around technology and social media, and its impact on healthcare. You will learn:

  • How young people are empowered and seamless in their use and adoption of technology?
  • Why older Australians need technology Zimmer Frames and how being technology savvy impacts overall confidence?
  • How fear of technology leads to its dismissal?
  • How some older people care too much about security and privacy, and how little young people do?

11:00 am - 11:30 am CASE STUDY: Exploring the Benefits, Opportunities and Challenges of Integrating Robotics Beyond Surgery into Multi Clinical Specialities

Kalli Spencer - Urologist, Macquarie University Hospital
Robotics is a growing facet of surgery as hospitals endeavour to integrate robotic systems and medical devices to create modern multidisciplinary theatres that allow a greater array of complex minimally invasive procedures to be performed. In this session, Dr Spencer will discuss key considerations for implementation and main learnings with reference to his experience in Macquarie University Hospital.

12:00 pm - 12:30 pm EXPERT PANEL DISCUSSION: Disruptive versus Constructive – Shifting Perspectives on the Implications of “Disruption” in Healthcare

Dr Elaine Saunders - Managing Director and Audiologist, Blamey Saunders
Leslie Burnett - Chief Medical Officer, Genome.One
Kalli Spencer - Urologist, Macquarie University Hospital
Disrupting healthcare can have a negative connotation but we need to see it as being constructive rather than disruptive. This panel will explore the way we perceive “disruption” and how we can shift perspectives to view disruption in adifferent light so we may leverage disruption to our advantage:

  • Assessing the real meaning behind “disruptive innovation”
  • How can we identify the opportunities presented by disruption and leverage it to our advantage?
  • Why disruption is OK and is not something we need to be afraid of!
  • We must consider other costing models to achieve what we want to achieve at lower cost

1:30 pm - 2:00 pm CASE STUDY: The Disruptive Nature of Genomics – Cutting Across the Traditional Boundaries of Medicine

Leslie Burnett - Chief Medical Officer, Genome.One
In this presentation, Leslie will examine the ways in which genomics will go beyond the traditional boundaries of medicine and paint the picture of where genomics will fit into the future of health result as it creates tension(both good and bad) within our healthcare system.

2:30 pm - 3:00 pm CASE STUDY: How New Technology Impacts Seniors with Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease and Depression

Tim Phillips - National Lifestyle Manager, Regis Aged Care
New technologies such as robotic pets and interactive projectors are having a massive impact in residential aged care, creating companionship and enabling social interaction with residents. In this session, Tim will discuss how:

  • PARO Therapy has enhanced the lives and wellbeing of residents while reducing physical and verbal behaviors and increasing social interaction
  • Other alternatives to PARO therapy which have also had positive resident outcomes
  • Use of interactive projectors which residents are able to engage and connect with various virtual communities
  • Use of Virtual Reality goggles and the benefits to residents
  • How Regis plans to use technology moving forward

Hospitals globally have been slow to adopt robotics and AI into patient care, although both have been widely used and tested in other industries. However robotics and AI are now finding their way into the healthcare sector, transforming practices, improving health outcomes and quality and efficiency of services. In this session, Anjali will discuss:

  • The implications of robotics and AI on our hospitals, clinicians and patients
  • Whether the new hospitals being built are ready for a robotic future – why it is important to consider how such technology can be integrated from the get go
  • The emerging concept of “factory-like” hospitals and plans for large-scale role changes for the humans working in a future robotic environment
  • How we might address the issue of accountability for failures or negligence in clinical performance
