The visionary seminar will have a focus on the potential and possibilities within the subject ‘Digitalisation in Life Sciences’: initiating digital transformation and change management in the health sector and trying to foresee the next 5-10 years of development. Estonia is one of the world’s most digitally enabled nations worldwide. Its IT R&D ecosystem enjoys global proof of concept, being trusted by many global organisations and companies.
Patient records in Estonia are digitized and secured, providing a single immutable data source for healthcare professionals. With a unique digital platform and collaborative ecosystem, Estonia is positioned to lead on preventative medicine, patient self-treatment, and industry efficiency. The solution called X-Road explained during the visionary seminar, allows Estonian medical records and drug prescriptions to be fully digitalised. X-Road provides numerous collaboration opportunities combining from one side ICT and medical technology companies with health care providers and public sector stakeholders from the other side. The Estonian Biobank was one of the first genome banks in the world with the aim to provide genetic data and allow us to visualise the relationship between genetic data and other health records. The developments of Estonian Biobank are presented by Tõnu Esko.
On the first part of visionary seminar Ain Aaviksoo gives a great insight in Estonia’s and GuardTime‘s efforts in the digitalisation in the life science sector, discussing the business opportunities with its leading digital and health companies and research institutes and Estonia’s vision on the life science sector’s digitalisation in the near future.
During the second part of visionary seminar the future vision is taken to the next level:
Bart de Witte introduces the idea and challenges on building free medical artificial intelligence.
Liesbet Geris presents the state of the art of in silico medicine and discuss the challenges that need to be addressed for it (and for digitalisation in life sciences) to reach its full potential.
Sachin Gaur takes a look to the digital health innovation trends in world.
Both sessions are followed up by short Q&A, where you can directly communicate with the top leaders of the fields.
