New technologies transforming healthcare: What implications for the workforce?

Monday, 08 April 2019

The large technological transformation characterised by almost universal connectivity, automation, and the generation of vast amounts of data, has a disrupting impact on the workforce and on working practices in potentially every industry. While the health and social work sectors are judged to be among the industries less affected by the risk of job loss due to automation, transformative technologies will most likely have an impact on the healthcare organisation and working practices. Experts discussed the potential implications  of new technologies for the organisation and delivery of healthcare services and the future needs in terms of workforce education, training and even new professional roles.

Speakers included: Luís Velez Lapão, Professor of International Public Health, Universidade Nova de Lisboa; and Ana Llena-Nozal, Team leader long-term care, Economist, Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, OECD. The event was chaired by Ton Wilthagen, Professor, Law School, Department of Politics and Public Administration, Tilburg University.
