Liftoff PGH 2020 will challenge regional stakeholders, individually and in concert, to envision what needs to be in place to realize a ten year vision for the region around five key forces for change.
Workforce & Training
Hear from leading players in education, training, and workforce development as they unveil their plans to ready the region for the future of health care. Regional leaders will paint a picture of innovative ways that organizations can support the workforce of the future, and prepare them with new skills and competencies needed as a result of emerging technologies.
Exhibitions and experts will suggest how our region can better support discoveries that increase accessibility, connection, and personalized care based on customer needs and preference. Innovations will create cheaper, faster, easier, and more reliable interventions.
Health Spaces New & Old
Leaders in design and technology will showcase opportunities for spaces to accommodate new models of care in homes and in the community. Technologies will equip the bedroom, bathroom, car and beyond to monitor vitals and suggest interventions to advance health. “Holistic health” will move from catchphrase to reality as health spaces address social, emotional, physical, educational, and even spiritual and restorative aspects of health comprehensively.
The New Patient
Within a decade, hierarchies of care will shift as new technologies allow patients to manage their wellness protocols, diagnostics, and treatment. Patient-centered care will move to patient driven-care as technology and social media open a world of connectivity and self-management.
Payment & Regulation
How much will I cost in the future? What if that were predictable through enhanced analytics? Imagine a customized health plan that is tailored to individual needs and circumstances, including genetics and demographics, finances, medical history, race, gender, geography, and age.
Be a leader in moving our region forward into its next renaissance. Prepare for launch.
