Congress Goal and educational outcome

Crossfire and debate will encourage a lively discussion. This will generate a strong take-home message on Smart Health

The goal of IMUKA 2018:

The goal is a two-day programme of presentations, panel discussions and interactive dialogue at the conference. We will present the key themes, ideas, and considerations for the current practice along with indications of some future trends. Bringing together a curated audience of key stakeholders in smart health and orthopedic surgeons will lead the way in the digital orthopedic revolution: Technology saves healthcare. The ultimate goal is the ongoing, evidence-based improvement of personalized care of the orthopedic consumers leading to Increased consumer safety, Increased efficiency, and Higher satisfaction rate.

Needs assessment

As Health care costs keep on rising and available funds are lacking. Therefore ways are sought to change the healthcare strategies affecting patient care. Several government strategies show that smart health will be the future

A basic understanding of the current limitations and future trends of smart health technology is essential for orthopaedic surgeons. But maybe more important, the current curriculum of a orthopaedic doctor has hardly and content on Smart Health. Besides the existing technology, no focus is seen on the potential of technology.

Two reports from 2017 are important to back up the importance of this conference

- Vision document Medical specialist 2025

- IBO Innovation in medical care (IBO= interdepartmental policy research)

The vision documents describe clearly the need to change from disease-oriented and accountability towards value creation and people-oriented including network medicine and innovation in healthcare.
