Which radical digital transformation is about to affect hospitals?

A lecture on the occasion of the 20-year anniversary of the association of hospital CIOs. In this lecture we will try to answer the question “What will hospital IT look like in 10 years?”

In 2016, our society is in the middle of the 4th economical revolution, often referred to as Industry 4.0 or, in a cross-sector perspective, als Economy 4.0.
It is no coincidence that this evolution is happening at the same time as third generation IT is replacing the client-server paradigm of personal computers by a cloud computing paradigm featuring the common computer. How will the “4.0 movement” impact hospitals and will patient treatment be greatly affected by it? What do “4.0” and “3rd Generation IT” actually mean? Will future hospital information systems be provided on a virtual, on-demand basis by IT service companies? Will IT personnel in hospitals still be there 10 years from now? Do hospitals have a potential for introducing “humanless work”, i.e. era 4.0-style automation and robotics? Is cloud computing an option for hospitals at all?

Yes, hospitals are affected by this mega-mega trend like any other industry. It is impossible for them to stay out of the digital world. In the next 5, 10 or 15 years hospitals will experience profound changes.

The Digital Revolution is inexoably changing our work environment. A speech dated 29.09.2015.

Phenomenons such as Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing or big data are bringing about a fundamental technological change that can be viewed as a new age of information technology. While the young generations X (of age 30-45) , Y (of age 15-30) and Z (of age 1-15) have been experiencing the digital world from their birth on as a matter of course and therefore are embracing techological change in the most natural way, many entrepreneurs of age 45+ are still seeing digital change as an undiscovered country. Numerous middle-sized companies are still assuming that this chance will not impact their businesses. However, if older business people miss the rapid transition to a virtual and digital working sphere, their companies probably won’t survive the Digital Revolution of the next 5 to 15 years. In the following presentation, Dr. Jörg Haas will discuss the economic miracle of Digital Revolution (=4.0) and will explain, that it will bring many more opportunities than risks to open-minded business people.
