Value-Based Healthcare (Room 1)

Value-Based Healthcare (VBHC) is a topic of broad and current interest in Europe. The Netherlands is one of the frontrunners in creating value for patients through the use of outcome sets for a number of medical conditions. The Dutch healthcare sector in general is making waves in Value-Based Healthcare: hospitals share data to compare outcomes, health insurance companies create bundled payment contracts, pharma and biotech co-create in VBHC-projects. The government supports these developments by granting subsidies for best practices and promising initiatives. In this session, we will dive into the waves and explain the different stages of VBHC. The first wave concerns finding the right experts and connecting them. A case presented by Amgen, a leading biotechnology company that will enter into partnerships to improve patient care. The second wave is bridging the silos between hospital and primary care. A case presented by AZ Delta Hospital, according to the value chain for lung cancer patients supported by interactive feedback loops. The third wave is the development of an outcome set with academic peers as well as building a knowledge and inspiration platform. This will be illustrated by a presentation by Erasmus Medical Center about creating ICHOM-sets in an academic setting and how to accelerate knowledge and implementation: the Linnean network.

Hammering down future pandemics (Room 4)

Session organised by Kadans Science Partner
The current pandemic is not the first and will not be the last we have to deal with. Factors like globalisation, global warming and zoonoses increase risks for new large-scale virus outbreaks. Ab Osterhaus (virologist and infectious disease expert) Clémence Ross-van Dorp (ambassador top sector Life Science & Health) and Bernd van Buuren (CEO of Protinhi Therapeutics) share their expertise and discuss how we should prepare for future pandemics in this round table.

Care for the ‘average patient’ is shifting to personalized healthcare & prevention. This also changes the role of patients themselves. They will be able to take control of their own life, care and health through home monitoring and self-diagnosis. Technology, Big Data, virtual networks and knowledge sharing are becoming more and more important in the sector. As patients increasingly monitor their own medical conditions and personal health with the help of mobile devices, the role of the physician also changes. What does this mean for the hospital of tomorrow? Will we still have hospitals in the future and what will they look like? In this session we will discuss the views and visions of a number of experts in the field.

In depth topics that will be discussed are:
Minimal invasive treatment devices aiming high precision and less damage to healthy tissue can often not be disassembled for cleaning and sterilization and are therefore disposed and also come with high costs. To come to a more sustainable healthcare system, we need to redesign these instruments, making them reusable or recyclable. If we also manage to make them also simpler and more affordable, we could also make them available for more than half of the world population that currently does not have access to save surgery.


Clinical decision support solutions based on Artificial Intelligence aims to facilitate diagnosis and therapeutic decisions with a clear goal: improving patient outcomes along disease-specific pathways. The solution shows the patient’s relevant clinical history, current patient status, diagnostic images and results from the pathological reports, directly on hand, eliminating the need to access information from multiple databases or files. Leveraging AI technologies to provide further insights for you and your patients and demonstrating the options for the next steps in diagnosis and therapy.

MDR GUIDE: Medical Device Regulations (Room 3)

The Dutch Authority VWS organised stakeholder meetings for the implementation of the MDR in the Netherlands.  In 2018 VWS organised special stakeholder meetings for software under the MDR. The Dutch Parliament raised questions since there was a concern that the MDR was a roadblock for Start-ups and manufacturers of Apps. Therefore, a VWS taskforce for Medical Device Software was initiated to create a “simplified” MDR Guide for Medical Device Software.

The Medical Device Regulations (MDR) is required from 26 May 2021 for all Medical Devices in Europe. The MDR has a huge impact on App developers and Medical Device Software manufacturers. The MDR brings many new requirements and often also more stricter requirements because of up-classifications. The MDR introduces an extension of the definition of software as a medical device. Software devices that fall under the scope of this definition is Medical Device Software as a module of a software solution or as an accessory to a Medical Device.

The Guide intends to:

  • Provide an overview of the qualification steps of the MDR. Qualification is the process of determining if software is a medical device according to the MDR and should therefore follow the requirements of the MDR. This software is then called Medical Device Software.
  • Bring an explanation of the steps and challenges for a (Start-Up) Software Manufacturer to successfully place a Medical Device Software on the market under the MDR. A companion document for in house-made Software will be made separately available.
  • Explain the key concepts of the MDR

MDR GUIDE: Medical Device Regulations

The Dutch Authority VWS organised stakeholder meetings for the implementation of the MDR in the Netherlands.  In 2018 VWS organised special stakeholder meetings for software under the MDR. The Dutch Parliament raised questions since there was a concern that the MDR was a roadblock for Start-ups and manufacturers of Apps. Therefore, a VWS taskforce for Medical Device Software was initiated to create a “simplified” MDR Guide for Medical Device Software.

The Medical Device Regulations (MDR) is required from 26 May 2021 for all Medical Devices in Europe. The MDR has a huge impact on App developers and Medical Device Software manufacturers. The MDR brings many new requirements and often also more stricter requirements because of up-classifications. The MDR introduces an extension of the definition of software as a medical device. Software devices that fall under the scope of this definition is Medical Device Software as a module of a software solution or as an accessory to a Medical Device.

The Guide intends to:

  • Provide an overview of the qualification steps of the MDR. Qualification is the process of determining if software is a medical device according to the MDR and should therefore follow the requirements of the MDR. This software is then called Medical Device Software.
  • Bring an explanation of the steps and challenges for a (Start-Up) Software Manufacturer to successfully place a Medical Device Software on the market under the MDR. A companion document for in house-made Software will be made separately available.
  • Explain the key concepts of the MDR

AI for Oncology (Room 4)

The treatment of cancer patients is for a large part determined through microscopic inspection of excised or biopsied tissue by a pathologist. However, accurately assessing the microscopic characteristics of cancer is getting more challenging due to the aging of the general population and the advent of personalized medicine; an ever-increasing number of patients have to diagnosed with techniques of increasing complexity in less time and as cheap as possible.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has shown to be able to perform at the level of expert pathologists and can play a key role in increasing the efficiency of diagnostic and managing the complex datastreams for prognostics.

In this 'break-out' session Geert Litjens, Assistant Professor at Radboud University, will show you which steps forward we have taken the last couple of years and where we are headed in the near future such that every cancer patient will receive the best possible treatment.

Value-Based Healthcare (Room 1)

Value-Based Healthcare (VBHC) is a topic of broad and current interest in Europe. The Netherlands is
one of the front runners in creating value for patients through the use of outcome sets for a number of
medical conditions. The Dutch healthcare sector in general is making waves in Value-Based
Healthcare: hospitals share data to compare outcomes, health insurance companies create bundled
payment contracts, pharma and biotech co-create in VBHC-projects. The government supports these
developments by granting subsidies for best practices and promising initiatives. In this session, we will
dive into the waves and explain the different steps in VBHC by three different cases.

The first case will be presented by Santeon - a network of 7 hospitals - and concerns the review
process by physicians of their outcomes to improve innovation and collaboration.

The second presentation by Axon HealthCare discusses dashboarding and reporting: creating loops
in VBHC.

And finally Roche will present their view on VBHC illustrated by projects they are currently working
on.

Matchmaking: Managing and sharing health data (private session) (Room 3)

Health data and data analytics have become the key ‘currency’ in the stream of healthcare that enables a radical improvement in the way healthcare is provided. Health data and data analytics includes the collection of data through electronic health records, patient registries, bio-based and connected health devices, as well as (open) data-driven infrastructure, data sharing platforms, big data and Artificial Intelligence-based analytics. For effective use of health data, it is necessary to connect different data repositories across types of data and across geographic boundaries, which represents an opportunity for healthcare startups. A whole value chain will have to transform its model from an acute-based paradigm to a more preventive and reactive health service. 

In this context, the aim of this meeting is to share knowledge and experience on how regional stakeholders are tackling the management of health data, how they facilitate safe access to data for the benefit of citizens, healthcare institutions and healthcare businesses and how they foster the development of AI-based solutions in healthcare fuelled by quality and trustworthy data sets.

Regions are encouraged to involve relevant experts and stakeholders from their region interested in engaging in these topics in this meeting.

Join us towards Smart Health:  Leveraging the regional perspective to facilitate the personalisation of health.

Smart Health is strongly technological driven and will induce a transformation of how health and well-being are approached, and medicine is being implemented. The convergence of knowledge on what determines health and disease or how the process of ageing is determined, with digital technologies and access to data opens a huge potential to develop new applications to improve general health, wellbeing, and will make preventive medicine reality. 

We, as regions, work together  to realise the potential of personalised medicine in Smart Health. Bringing the implementation to the next level, while transforming the connected European industrial value chains. We do this as part of the Vanguard Initiative, an European regional innovation network.

Join the session to share knowledge and get inspired by the different initiatives which are currently running across Europe. These initiatives often have different focal areas or target only part of the value chain. A better integration and coordination can enforce the impact of the actions.

 

The partner regions already established solid ecosystems combining biomedical, technological and data driven expertise. By bringing these ecosystems together, a higher added value will be reached and boost the implementation; it will realise an innovative approach for health and care in Europe.

Value-Based Healthcare

Value-Based Healthcare (VBHC) is a topic of broad and current interest in Europe. The Netherlands is
one of the front runners in creating value for patients through the use of outcome sets for a number of
medical conditions. The Dutch healthcare sector in general is making waves in Value-Based
Healthcare: hospitals share data to compare outcomes, health insurance companies create bundled
payment contracts, pharma and biotech co-create in VBHC-projects. The government supports these
developments by granting subsidies for best practices and promising initiatives. In this session, we will
dive into the waves and explain the different steps in VBHC by three different cases.

The first case will be presented by Santeon - a network of 7 hospitals - and concerns the review
process by physicians of their outcomes to improve innovation and collaboration.

The second presentation by Axon HealthCare discusses dashboarding and reporting: creating loops
in VBHC.

And finally Roche will present their view on VBHC illustrated by projects they are currently working
on.

Join us towards Smart Health:  Leveraging the regional perspective to facilitate the personalisation of health.

Smart Health is strongly technological driven and will induce a transformation of how health and well-being are approached, and medicine is being implemented. The convergence of knowledge on what determines health and disease or how the process of ageing is determined, with digital technologies and access to data opens a huge potential to develop new applications to improve general health, wellbeing, and will make preventive medicine reality. 

We, as regions, work together  to realise the potential of personalised medicine in Smart Health. Bringing the implementation to the next level, while transforming the connected European industrial value chains. We do this as part of the Vanguard Initiative, an European regional innovation network.

Join the session to share knowledge and get inspired by the different initiatives which are currently running across Europe. These initiatives often have different focal areas or target only part of the value chain. A better integration and coordination can enforce the impact of the actions.

 

The partner regions already established solid ecosystems combining biomedical, technological and data driven expertise. By bringing these ecosystems together, a higher added value will be reached and boost the implementation; it will realise an innovative approach for health and care in Europe.

Matchmaking: Managing and sharing health data (private session)

Health data and data analytics have become the key ‘currency’ in the stream of healthcare that enables a radical improvement in the way healthcare is provided. Health data and data analytics includes the collection of data through electronic health records, patient registries, bio-based and connected health devices, as well as (open) data-driven infrastructure, data sharing platforms, big data and Artificial Intelligence-based analytics. For effective use of health data, it is necessary to connect different data repositories across types of data and across geographic boundaries, which represents an opportunity for healthcare startups. A whole value chain will have to transform its model from an acute-based paradigm to a more preventive and reactive health service. 

In this context, the aim of this meeting is to share knowledge and experience on how regional stakeholders are tackling the management of health data, how they facilitate safe access to data for the benefit of citizens, healthcare institutions and healthcare businesses and how they foster the development of AI-based solutions in healthcare fuelled by quality and trustworthy data sets.

Regions are encouraged to involve relevant experts and stakeholders from their region interested in engaging in these topics in this meeting.

AI for Oncology

The treatment of cancer patients is for a large part determined through microscopic inspection of excised or biopsied tissue by a pathologist. However, accurately assessing the microscopic characteristics of cancer is getting more challenging due to the aging of the general population and the advent of personalized medicine; an ever-increasing number of patients have to diagnosed with techniques of increasing complexity in less time and as cheap as possible.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has shown to be able to perform at the level of expert pathologists and can play a key role in increasing the efficiency of diagnostic and managing the complex datastreams for prognostics.

In this 'break-out' session Geert Litjens, Assistant Professor at Radboud University, will show you which steps forward we have taken the last couple of years and where we are headed in the near future such that every cancer patient will receive the best possible treatment.
