First, we would like to share a few exciting highlights. The event’s keynote speaker, prof. Robert Wachter, MD, Chair of the UCSF Department of Medicine, shared some bold thoughts, such as: “It is time to reimagine healthcare,” and “Start thinking about the world after the EHR.”

Other speakers also provided interesting recommendations for an improved approach to digital health, including:

  • Aloha McBride, EY Global Health Leader: “We won’t be throwing the EHR out, but just shrinking the core, all while leveraging the investment and adding new applications.”
  • Oliver Heinze, Acting Director of the Department of Medical Information Systems, University Hospital Heidelberg: “The era of EHR systems is over.”
  • George Crooks, OBE, CEO, DHI Scotland: “Define services to join up silos into a holistic view.”
  • Rachel Dunscombe, CEO, NHS Digital Academy: “Data is for life.”
  • John Meredith, Lead Technical Design Architect, NHC Wales Informatics Service: “Without structured data, you’re just building technical debt into your applications.”
  • Tomaž Gornik, Co-chair openEHR International and CEO of Better: “Healthcare should think about data first, applications second.
  • Ian McNicoll, Board Member, openEHR International: “Let the apps fit the user, and the data fit the patient.”
