Conference paper
Part of the Informatik aktuell book series (INFORMAT)


Healthcare in general and medical imaging in particular will change dramatically in the next 20 years with the emergence of artificial intelligence (including machine and deep learning), 3D printing, personalized diagnosis and therapies, shift from therapy to prevention, and many related delivery and economic changes. Huge opportunities are present in developed, emerging and developing nations, each with completely different needs and infrastructural environments, and with a completely different reimbursement system. The tutorial will prepare the attendees for the changes that will likely come up in the coming years and subsequently focus on recognizing the need for a change in our development and innovation process, that must focus on digitization and connectivity, small footprint, robustness, and low cost, and with that explore alternative financing methods.
