Liftoff PGH is organized around five key forces for change. As we look toward the future, these are the ideas fundamentally reshaping the healthcare industry.
Workforce & Education
Technology radically democratizes the pursuit of knowledge, redrawing the next generation of healthcare workers. Humans will be powered by advanced automation and AI, while the rate of change necessitates rethinking how professionals relearn and reskill. Education shifts from the earliest age, along with developmental strengths and priorities.
Healthcare innovation is rooted in diversity of experience, and ingenuity knows neither sector nor generational limits. New models enable rapid translation of research to market testing, attracting unprecedented investment from unexpected players.
Health Spaces New & Old
Health services are shifting with changing lifestyles, moving to accessible and convenient locations connected to daily errands. If care moves to grocery stores, malls, and even the home, how does spatial design adapt to place?
The New Patient
New technologies allow patients to personalize care decisions, selecting treatments and service models that align with their consumer preferences. With health diagnostics integrated into daily life, patients can advocate for themselves directly, while providers gain real time connection to their customers.
Payment & Regulation
Imagine a customized health plan tailored to the demographics, finance, medical history, and genetics of each patient, with predictable costs driven by advanced analytics. With precision comes ethical implications and challenges to existing approval and regulation mechanisms.
