Global Health Connector Summit: International Healthcare Opportunities and Innovation
The Digital Health Society and ECH Alliance are focusing on how to accelerate the deployment of digital health innovations at scale. They intend to do this by connecting people and organizations and amplifying messages from these organizations. They are also interested in facilitating international opportunities. The ECH Alliance brings together all healthcare stakeholders and uses a four-step process that includes innovation, implementation, scale-up and transfer. The goal is to transform health by applying the best practices from one place to another and making them available to other organizations and companies. They also aim to support international healthcare with various collaborations and programs. GSK, McKinsey, Intersystems and Africa Centers for Disease Control provided examples on how they are incorporating digital health into their organizations and how AI is being used in healthcare. The ECH Alliance also announced the launch of Health Europe, a new conference that will celebrate healthcare innovation and research. Lastly, the panel discussed the need for increasing trust and global consensus in digital health. The panelists agreed that transparency, honesty, and careful data management are crucial to achieve this.
