The 7th Smart Health Community of Practice (CoP) Forum: Living Digital 2040: The Impact of the Future of Work on the Future of Healthcare

The 7th Smart Health Community of Practice (CoP) Forum: Living Digital 2040: The Impact of the Future of Work on the Future of Healthcare

Can we organise ourselves differently to tackle digital disruption and transformation in healthcare? This talk will answer the question by examining the impact of digital technologies on the intersection of work and healthcare. It will explore ideas about how we can access the whole spectrum of expertise that we need in the future  -- from clinical knowledge to data science to social support  -- as cities build community-based health ecosystems. It will also present scenarios for the future of work and healthcare, and propose unifying strategies that underpin how we choose to respond.

This talk will draw on the forthcoming book Living Digital 2040: Future of Work, Education and Healthcare, the title of the report for the National Research Foundation/Ministry of National Development-funded project “Future of Cities -Living With Technology”.  This project was a multi-disciplinary study across design, social science, technology, organizations, strategy, and public policy.  It was conducted with key collaborators, including the Smart Health Leadership Centre at the NUS-Institute for System Science.

The talk will be presented by Mr POON King Wang. For the Q&A panel, he will be joined by Dr LIM Wee Kiat, Dr Hyowon LEE, Mr Aaron YONG, and Dr Marie CHAE.
