IMSS & Health 2.0 Frases celebres

La conferencia europea HIMSS & Health 2.0 en Finlandia estuvo llena de conferencias magistrales inspiradoras y talleres prácticos. Aquí están las declaraciones más significativas que vale la pena recordar y tener en cuenta.

“We need to redefine the rules for data ownership and draft something like a digital constitution for European citizens across all industries”

"Necesitamos redefinir las reglas para la propiedad de datos y redactar algo así como una constitución digital para los ciudadanos europeos en todas las industrias"

Jaana Sinipuro, Sitra

We are entering the digital era, and Europe needs shared guidelines for the human-driven use of data and trust-based artificial intelligence solutions. Transparent algorithms, open science data, robust data protection rules, and international cooperation across European countries and different industries could be a factor distinguishing them from the USA and China.

Estamos entrando en la era digital, y Europa necesita pautas compartidas para el uso humano de los datos y las soluciones de inteligencia artificial basadas en la confianza. Los algoritmos transparentes, los datos científicos abiertos, las reglas de protección de datos sólidas y la cooperación internacional en los países europeos y las diferentes industrias podrían ser un factor que los distinga de los Estados Unidos y China.
“Technology is not neutral” 

"La tecnología no es neutral"
Tamsin Rose, Friends of Europe

Like money, the more data you acquire, the more things you can do with it. Good things but also terrible ones. The challenge is how to design a new digital ecosystem where people benefit most from Big Data, not big tech dragons.
“It happens too often that new technology is frustrating. Therefore a lot of potentially good data is not being used”

Jeroen Windhorst - Sjauw En Wa, CNIO Network Netherlands

User-unfriendly IT solutions for clinicians are killing the adoption of digital solutions, leading to burnout of medical workers, and creating a barrier between the physician and the patient. We need systems that make work easy.
“What you measure will improve”

Aron Anderson, Adventurer

If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it – what Peter Drucker said about management has now taken a new meaning. Wearables are not just gadgets; they help patients to monitor health, to prevent diseases. Smartwatches monitor heart health, and apps help patients in rehabilitation. Let’s try to walk in the patient’s shoes before we call wearables “just gadgets.”
“Do we want to shape the technology or let the technology to shape us?”

Erik Gerritsen, Vice-Minister at the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport

More political engagement and investment in the digitalization of healthcare systems are needed. Time is running out; technology is developing very quickly, faster than the legal framework. We need empowered patients but also empowered healthcare professionals.
“AI will not replace physicians. However, physicians who use AI will replace those who do not”

unknown author

Many are afraid of AI taking over the physician’s work. But it won’t happen – the human factor will always play a leading role. But physicians with no digital skills will not benefit from what digital health offers.
“It's time to move from reactive sick-care to proactive healthcare by default”

Koen Kas, Healthcare futurist & Delight thinker

We have to move from incidental healthcare to continuum-based healthcare. To do so, we don’t need more technologies. They are already here. We need a culture change with a focus on prevention, instead of pumping money into hospitals.
“Co-creation with citizens and patients is a transformational change we want to see in healthcare”

Christopher Ross, Mayo Clinic

Who doesn’t agree with that? The challenge: how can technology replace people in some tasks without stripping healthcare away from human touch?
“Simplify the difficult”

Kathleen Aller, InterSystems

Focus on small wins and build them up instead of starting big projects and delivering nothing at all. Aiming at a perfect solution has no sense. Digitalization in healthcare as a process of adaptive change.
“Technology is not to be feared; it is only to be understood.”

Carolina Varela Rodríguez, Hospital Universitario 12 De Octubre

What Marie Sklodowska-Curie once said is timeless. AI, algorithms, Big Data - if we know how the technology works, we will no longer be afraid of it.
“Having access to information when it’s needed is critical”

Hal Wolf, President and CEO HIMSS

And using it a responsible way.
“Would Amazon build a new service without putting customers in the center? Would Tesla build a new electric car without asking clients what they were expecting? So why in 2019 in healthcare do we not even ask patients what they need?”

Michael Seres, Founder of
