This course has been organized with the collaboration of the Department of Healthcare Management and Innovation of the University of Malaga.

Has the pandemic changed our lives? How will our health care be in the future? Can there be a symbiosis between new technologies / artificial intelligence and humanism in Medicine? How are these technologies already impacting our lives?

The future of Medicine

Addressing the future of any discipline always poses a guesswork effort that is never easy. Even less in scenarios of such accelerated change as the one we live in these times of pandemic. This is the case in Medicine and other Health Sciences, accumulating evidence with exponential growth trends. We will analyse aspects that we consider fundamental for the change that we are going to experience and, in many cases, lead, but not only health professionals … The health rules will be rewritten by individuals, be they patients, insured, clients, family members , consumers or any other form of approach to it. It has already happened in other sectors and healthcare is no exception.

The ability and competence in decision-making (or not) and informed individual decisions (or not) are what mark the future of healthcare. They are new ways of approaching medical information, new ways of interacting with healthcare professionals or with each other, new ways of managing your medical data, new ways of making decisions.

At foundation 29, being a non-profit foundation, what we try is to stimulate society in how new systems and new tools to support decision-making should be generated. A job that we do is a tool that we have to support the diagnosis of rare diseases, where what we do is extract the symptoms from the medical reports automatically so that the doctor simply has to cure them and say that the symptom corresponds to the patient and then a predictive model of what disease can be from a set of symptoms. https://dx29.ai/

Increasingly, we associate terms such as digital transformation, algorithms, big data, artificial intelligence, wearables, ehealth, telemedicine … We could think that this is innovation, technology, but these technological advances are not the center but the tool that it should make it possible to return the person to the center of care practice; technology is not at the center of digital transformation, people are. Returning the protagonist to people will transcend any innovation that wants to be successfully proposed in the healthcare environment.

We need very technological and very humanistic healthcare professionals. We do not know what healthcare practice will be like in the not too distant future, but we know that the doctor-patient relationship, the essence of Medicine, will exist as long as people exist.
