Program overview

We want to create a future of sustainable healthcare by bringing together stakeholders from different industries and backgrounds who are committed to address key healthcare challenges.

Our main topics this year are focused on positively affecting accessibility (getting access to healthcare), effectiveness (giving good quality care), affordability (making sure we can afford it for generations to come). We are also forming initiative groups of stakeholders who commit to address a specific healthcare issue.

Our program this year is focused on interaction. Next to short plenary presentations, you can expect short movies, innovation pitches, panel discussions and social voting.

New Business Models in Healthcare: Oncology

Situation: The current healthcare system is strongly input –driven. The current system does not sufficiently reward health outcome and is little patient centric. As a result the system stimulates volume growth and puts significant pressure on budgets; an un-sustainable situation Therefore it is important to address, in line with the comment made by the Dutch MoH in her Long Term Healthcare Vision, the need for the creation of New Business Models in healthcare. Challenge: How do we ensure that any New Business Model embraces the concept of value-based healthcare instead of focusing on volumes and rewards those aspects in healthcare which patients value?

In the healthcare HorizonScan the field of oncology draws most attention both in terms of break-through innovations as well as significant financial challenges . It would be therefore interesting to assess the feasibility to set up new business models in the field of oncology which broadens the scope within the whole healthcare chain, addressing the added-value generated in each part of the chain from innovation producers to ‘consumers’: the patient.

Objective: Set-up of a coalition of interested stakeholders who join brains and forces on ideas to set-up/create a new business model in the field of oncology care which is value-chain driven and rewards outcomes linked to added value created for the patient.



Vitality & Healthy Food

Prevention of disease is key. Lifestyle changes has proven to be very important. Among these changes food plays a very important role. Obesitas has become a worldwide problem. Across the globe the number of people that are obese is rising. Healthy food needs to be defined and industry must be make responsible for the production of healthy food. The industry must know the whole food chain.

People must be educated to eat healthy food, even if it is a little more expensive than non-healthy food.



Virtual Healthcare

Virtual healthcare is knocking at our door. Specialised hospital care is increasingly being delivered in the home environment of the patient. New technology accelerates virtual healthcare, making it more accessible for patients and professionals, and pushing us towards redefining organisation and financing of our healthcare.
It all starts with acknowledging this development, and realising that we may be running late. We have to work together to anticipate the way patients interact with medical professionals change.
That’s exactly what this theme group is about to do. Let’s define the top questions that need answering towards a sound strategy for all players in the field. By joining this theme group, you may well be contributing to a global quality boost in the way we embrace the opportunities that virtual healthcare offers.

This year will be the first year that we will have a Health Market. This market is a cooperation between the Accenture Innovation Awards and the World Healthcare Forum.
