The @hospital 4.0 conference is being organised by the Louvain-la-Neuve Cercle du Lac, in collaboration with the agency Expansion, on 21 November from 1 to 6.30 pm. The Cercle du Lac is a business club that aims to promote networking, develop entrepreneurial relations and highlight innovation.
The conference @hospital 4.0 gives you the chance to find out about the latest trends as well as the funding and digitalisation issues facing hospitals in Belgium. To tackle these many subjects, we offer you a concentrated format of lectures with a panel of experts: hospital CEOs and directors, financial directors, laboratory heads, IT managers, politicians and the heads of mutual insurance funds involved in the reform of health care to create a platform for debate and discussion. The debate and discussion will be in French.
The speeches and discussions among experts and visionaries during the conference will focus on two themes:
•Funding & management
◦The consequences and impacts of the reform on a structural and managerial level and as regards investment (network structure, budgetary constraints, ambulatory shift, etc.)
◦New paradigm: will hospitals be quoted on the stock exchange in the future?
◦The new funding strategies to be adopted further to the reform
◦Digitalisation, DPI, ehealth, smart and predictive diagnostics: the priorities set and the strategies implemented
◦The impact of new technologies on the role of the biologist and the care path
Five good reasons to take part in @hospital 4.0:
•To stay abreast of digitalisation solutions in health care
•To meet the visionaries and leading players in the field of health care
•To take part in shock debates on hospital funding
