Healthcare is known for its slow pace of change, but the pandemic has its own, much faster one. Leaders are compelled to deal with novel solutions, processes and skills, but numerous gaps and discrepancies remain to be addressed.


These matters are explored in depth in the latest – The Journal issue, ‘Novelty vs. Legacy’, to which our panellists have contributed sharing their experiences, success stories and lessons learnt. Smooth operation is hindered by discrepancies of existing and modern technology. Experienced staff is faced with the need to acquire new skills. Investments are necessary to ensure an organisation’s livelihood in the future. How do leaders address these challenges? What approach works best? Should there be revolution or evolution?


After a brief introduction from Mag. Christian Marolt, Executive and Editorial Director at, these and many other questions will be discussed by the panel. During the Q&A session, audience members will also have an opportunity to exchange ideas with acknowledged experts, including:


Prof Geraldine McGinty, Chief Strategy Officer at Weill Cornell Medicine Physician Organization, President of the American College of Radiology, Assistant Professor of Radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College, Assistant Attending Radiologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Campus (USA).
