Update 2022: This initiative dates from 2019, then Covid hit the world. Stay tuned for more news soon about steps in 2022/2023
The Forum Romanum for centuries was the place to be for speeches, sports, criminal trials, and ideas to share and spread. In 2021 this concept again will be the ‘place’ to be if you want to talk about sustainable health(care), or if you want to listen to great minds from all over the world sharing their idea’s, or even share yours with the ambition to make a tangible impact.
With doubling healthcare demand, shortage of skilled personnel, increasing burn-out rates, decreasing budgets, and patients becoming empowered, there is no way this is sustainable.
Healthcare will implode! The solution for the future of healthcare = health. We need to find a pathway from healthcare > health (#HC2H) with the use of technology, education, and partnering cross-industry to increase prevention and self-empowerment.
Our Future Health Forum 2021 will host delegates from all over the world elaborating about the convergence of technology and (patient)empowerment and the shift from healthcare to health. A cross-fertilization of other current high-level conferences in healthcare with a deep dive into solution-aimed debates. Not a regular conference, no lectures, no pitches, and no commercial talks. But great ideas on how health(care) can be improved are shared with a skeptic, positive, educated, enthusiastic but most of all passionate audience. Elaborate on the ideas on how to pursue them into reality, with the help of people from the audience. Reshape your ideas, pivot them about sustainable health(care), refine them and find peers to help bring them into reality.
As health(care) is a universal topic, there is no specific targeted group or audience, but we hope to meet many patients, family, and informal care, professionals who deliver healthcare on a daily basis. Also people from government, politicians, industry, and payers. As this historic place assimilated centuries of knowledge and many special occasions (although not all are to be proud of) we will encourage also philosophers, ethicists, and other thinkers to join us.
Prior to the event, there will be (and already are) a number of (stealth) events leading as stepping stones towards Our Future Health Forum 2021 post-summer. So this event is actually a change tool in disguise. I would love to tell you more about this concept.
I am gathering once again a great group to produce this very special gathering in, some of which worked with me on TEDxMaastricht 2011, 2012, TEDxNijmegen 2013 as well as on the global Our Future Health conferences I’ve organized during my tenure at Radboud University Medical Centre (all live-streamed 1000+ seat conferences), and awesome new great minds as well. With state-of-the-art technology, this hybrid event will bring together knowledge, ambition, passion and execution power and spread it all over the globe via an impressive mix of channels.
t will be an independent event organized by Transform.health, in collaboration with great partners in a multi-year commitment, like Deloitte, GGZe (Mental Health Organisation) and many soon to be announced others, to make this event a keystone event every year on the European Continent.
