11:00 AM CASE STUDY: Exploring the Benefits, Opportunities and Challenges of Integrating Robotics Beyond Surgery into Multi Clinical Specialities
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 EXPERT PANEL DISCUSSION: Disruptive versus Constructive – Shifting Perspectives on the Implications of “Disruption” in Healthcare
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
