Planning of a smart hospital
A local hospital is planned with extensive adoption of information technology to support its triple aim: achieving population health, enhancing patient experiences, and reducing financial burden to the patients. An integrated digital strategy is developed for a ‘smart hospital’ with three essential components: (a) Smart Medicine – a fully digitalised electronic medical record system that support clinical decision making and population health; (b) Smart Care – close loop mobile applications that support doctors, nurses, and patients themselves to go through the patient journeys; and (c) Smart Management – strategic adoption of Internet of Things to increase efficiency in the daily operation and management of the patient care and supporting services.

Re-wiring our brain to exploit collaboration, innovation and learning in the age of digitalisation
Thriving digitalisation leads to the emergence of the networked economy: knowledge remains the only infinitely renewable resource in organisation and the traditional value disciplines have been vigorously challenged, while value is created by exchange of data and information leveraging off the network effect. Indeed, digitalisation alone is not a game changer; instead the right mix of digitalisation with knowledge and technologies is. Operating with the above doctrine, the speaker further explores how digitialisation will impact knowledge management together with the associated challenges and opportunities, highlighting what we need to adapt and unlearn in order to overcome some of the challenges.
