Panel on “The emergence of retail strategies in healthcare”
Moderated by Katharina Janus (Professor and Director, Center for Healthcare Management, Germany, and Columbia University, New York, USA)

Service “on-demand” is the mantra in many industries, but just recently gaining relevance in healthcare. Panelists will explore the following issues that will then be discussed in roundtable breakout sessions:

  • What is the future purpose of primary care? From the gatekeeper to the coordinator of self-care and specialized care.
  • How will disruptive technologies and strategies determine diagnostics in the future?
  • Does providing value added services to the patient replace the sacred relationship between physician and patient?
  • Can the old guard compete or collaborate to stay on top of the shifting sands of the industry?

Moderated by Alan Weil (Editor-in-Chief, Health Affairs, Washington D.C., USA)

Science knows it best, but practice gets it done. Let’s talk about a pragmatic approach to innovation from various perspectives to better understand generic phenomena, such as:

  • Learning organizations: how can organizations be and remain dynamic?
  • Organizational intelligence: how do organizations comprehend and conclude knowledge relevant to their business purpose?
  • From managed care to damaged care – a failure of organizational intelligence or learning or, in other words: do we face a resource or a management challenge?
  • Why many have tried and failed in healthcare? Is a new managed care on the horizon?

 

Panelists include:
