Plenary programme

09:45 - 11:00

Henk van Houten is the Chief Technology Officer of Royal Philips, a position he has held since 2016. His office initiates and drives innovation across businesses and markets, with a focus on creating integrated solutions across the continuum of care, enabled by digital technologies, smart systems and devices.
Henk started his career at Philips Research in 1985, where he investigated quantum transport phenomena in semiconductor nanostructures – work awarded with the Royal Dutch Shell prize. He has since held a range of international management positions through to his current role.
As CTO of Philips Henk is determined to help create a world where technology adapts to people, not the other way round.

Topics of expertise:
• Digitization of healthcare: the move to systems of systems
• Adaptive intelligence (AI) and data science - augmenting humans to provide better care
• Hybrid cloud and The Internet of (medical) Things
• Image guided therapy
• Precision diagnostics


How disruptive technologies can help in creating solutions for value-based care
New technologies, like miniaturized smart devices, the internet of medical things, artificial intelligence, and the “digital twin” of the patient hold great promise to help address some of the world’s most pressing healthcare challenges. Technology push is not the answer, however. The aim should be to make care more predictive, precise and personalized, leading to better clinical outcomes. And equally important, to help contain costs, and improve patient and staff experience. We refer to this as the quadruple aim.

To do so effectively an integrated solutions approach is required, innovations need to be developed together with the key stakeholders in the healthcare system, and the impact needs to be quantified.

Hear first-hand how global health technology company Philips is leading the shift to value-based care, using a people-centric and outcomes focused innovation approach. Henk van Houten, Philips' Chief Technology Officer, will explain how this is being done taking cardiology as an example. His talk will touch upon precision diagnosis, image guided therapy, ubiquitous monitoring and acute care.
