Title presentation: Unifying all future things healthcare by delight
Delight is the experience that comes closest to magic, something for which you can’t prepare. Using a fireworks of examples, I show how 'Delight thinking' allows us to innovate & to create a future in which we move away from reactive sick care to proactive health care. Where we get ill no more. I’ll introduce those changes linked to the digital (AI, sensors, IoT, ...) and the upcoming biological (genomics) revolutions. I’ll introduce our digital twin, our virtual alter ego that becomes our personal assistant. Almost like magic. Or even more so, like the Chinese village doctor from the past who knew everything about me and therefore could keep me healthy. And got paid for it. Welcome to the future, today.
