Covid Lightning Talk

Dr. Charles Alessi, Co-founder and Chief Clinical Officer éditohealth from Spain, England, France focused his lightning talk on COVID and how it has driven healthcare to change and has ‘forced’ us to reflect on our system. He examined three particular movements: digitisation, workforce and personalisation. 

KEY TAKEAWAY: We need to take a step back and have a ‘lifespan longer than a butterfly’ view to see how things are going to be in the future. Whilst it might not seem optimistic now, you will find that things are not that bad. A new type of blended healthcare will help increase patient and healthcare professional touch points. We can't continue with a healthcare system that is purely activity based, we need to think more around population health dimensions which will narrow inequality.

We are looking to a new dawn, time has come to get patients at the heart of everything that we do.” - Dr Charles Alessi
