Welcome to the ODIN project Hospital of the future 360º webinar series!
ODIN #7 Webinar "The Digital Transformation in Healthcare"
Our 7th webinar of the ODIN Hospitals of the future 360° webinar series, is all about the digital transformation in health care. This new webinar edition is being organized and led by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and will be dealing with the development of digital solutions in health. The health sector stands to be one of the major beneficiaries, both in terms of logistics and in terms of healthcare management. There are still many challenges to obtaining full benefits, such as access to data, regulations specifically set up for AI in healthcare, technical issues associated with the complexity of AI algorithms, and unresolved legal and ethical questions.
We are pleased to announce the participation of the following panelists, who talked about issues around Health Data, AI, and digital platforms and their impact on healthcare.
Yannios Tolias is Legal lead on AI and AI liability, Deputy Director General for Health responsible for Directorates Health systems, medical products and innovation, and Digital Health, European Reference Networks, Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety at the European Commission. He will talk on “Health Data and AI in Healthcare – Potentials, Challenges and EC Legislative Proposals».
Catherine Barras experience spans multiple domains of healthcare IT, from new Digital Hospitals programmes, to Electronic Health Records projects, Innovation and Data Exploitation powered by Digital Health Platforms, Analytics solutions, Integrated Care, Life Sciences and Precision Medicine. She is leading Dedalus Global Consulting which provides, through a range of clinicians, senior consultants and technologists, deep industry expertise and content for Dedalus customer engagements, as well as digital transformation strategic advisory services for clients. She is going to present “Trends, Benefits and Challenges of hospitals using digital platforms”.
After many years at the service provision side Jordi Piera moved to the Catalan Health Service where he is currently leading the Digital Health Strategy Office. In the academic field, Jordi is visiting lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Udine (Italy), associate professor of the Faculty of Telecommunications, Informatics and Multimedia at the Open University of Catalonia and Co-director of the Executive Master’s in Digital Health at the University of Barcelona, where his research interests are on integrated care delivery models and in the design, implementation, and evaluation of digital health solutions. He will elaborate on why it is «Time to get rid of legacy systems».
ODIN #6 Webinar "The Ubiquitous Hospital"
The digital revolution allows a rethinking of the traditional hospital. It allows changing the traditional system of a closed Hospital for a Hospital with open doors, without walls, with a preventive and integrating approach through coordinated actions and being able to treat the patient wherever he is, always supported by new technologies. Within this webinar, we want to introduce you to two initiatives that have been operating for some time in our hospital and that our speakers will explain in greater detail: CARDIORED and the Hospitalist Medicine Service.
Webinar #5 – Hospital Disaster Preparedness
Our fifth webinar of the 360° ODIN WEBINAR series took place on 31 March. In this session, experts presented some disaster scenarios in hospitals and how to increase preparedness for these challenges.
«Hospitals are under increasing pressure. This webinar presents some of the challenges hospitals face during disasters and how we can increase preparedness for these challenges. It is probably not possible to give a definition of «disaster», because we cannot predict the nature of the next one. However, it is possible to list some recent ones: pandemics, wars, catastrophic natural events, cyber-attacks. In this webinar, the speakers discuss the importance of hospital disaster preparedness to increase the resilience of healthcare and thus the safety of patients. Watch the open discussion below, moderated by Professor Leandro Pecchia and Dr. Yadin David».
Webinar #4 – Enhancing Healthcare processes with deep learning
It is a pleasure to welcome outstanding healthcare experts within the field of biomedicine in our fourth ODINwebinar: Anca Bucur, May Dongmei Wang, Dimitrios I. Fotiadis, and Constantinos Pattichis we were discuss how deep learning and AI technologies were enhance healthcare processes within the hospital ecosystem. The experts were analyse the present and future trends in AI technologies and how ODIN is going to bring that innovation for the hospital of the future.
Webinar #3 - Rehabilitation and Assistive Robots: Past, Present and Future
The session in a nutshell: Rehabilitation and Assistive Robots: Past, Present and Future
From medical robots to healthcare assistants and intelligent machines replacing or supporting human functions in the hospital. Robots and humans are getting closer and closer, collaborate and interact physically and cognitively. Thanks to the AI and sensors, next generation of robots in the hospital will be able to learn, reason, take decisions and change their behavior in complete user-tailored and human-centric perspective.
Webinar #2 - Operating Room of the future: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and emerging innovations
The second official webinar, took place on 28th October 2021 conveying a great audience.
During this session we had the opportunity to hear from Medtronic experts, one of the world’s largest medical technology, services and solutions companies with the aim of relieving pain, restoring health and extending the lives of millions of people.
It was a pleasure to had the participation of the following panelists, who discussed about the challenges that ORs management facing, the main innovations currently in use in the sector, and the novelties that are expected in the coming years.
The session in a nutshell: Operating Room of the future: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and emerging innovations.
How will surgeons operate in the future? The future OR, as an intelligent environment, will be equipped with sensors, robots and AI; it will proactively react to the needs of surgeons and patients, allowing healthcare professionals to fully understand and cope with the situation, consequently improving the healthcare outcomes.
Webinar #1 - Integrated Robotics
The first official webinar, which took place on July 23th, was a great success.
It was a pleasure to have the following leaders in medical robotics as speakers.
The sesion in a nutshell: Integrated Robotics transforming the healthcare scenario.
Robots have been used in the healthcare sector for some time, essentially operating behind the scenes. In recent years, AI-based data science and analytics have transformed healthcare robotics, expanding its physical capabilities and range of applications. Thus, integrated robotics, as applied to the healthcare setting, is now transforming the way medical practices are conducted, automating and optimizing the delivery of supplies and disinfection, and freeing up time for professionals to engage socially with patients. Healthcare robotics enables a high level of patient care, efficient processes in clinical settings and a safe environment for both patients and healthcare staff. In this first webinar organized by the ODIN EU project, a broad overview of the state of healthcare robotics and «what’s next» was presented and discussed with world leaders in the medical robotics sector, both from academia and industry.
