Help the healthcare sector prepare for the future of hospitals and you could start piloting your project in the Belgian healthcare sector.
The Challenge: Prepare for Hospital 2050
In4Care’s challenge builds upon the 7 concrete handles which were conceived during the In4Care Hospital 2050 gathering (If our beds are filled, it means we’ve failed). In order to prepare for the Hospital of 2050, hospitals now need to develop tools and strategies around these 7 concrete handles.
1. Create a sense of urgency (storytelling)
2. Gather the right people
3. Create a hospitable environment for innovation
4. Build an irresistible vision
5. Communication of intentions (to a very broad audience)
6. Do! And do together
7. Don’t stop innovating (recreate yourself)
All tools that can be helpful to support one of these handles (or multiple) are very welcome. More reading, see the In4Care’s blog article on Hospital 2050.
Partner with In4Care
In4Care will introduce the award winner – via all its communication channels – to all their members (hospitals, care homes, psychiatries, organisations for people with physical or mental disabilities, child care, …) with a request to establish a (hopefully fertile) pilot environment for the award winner. On top of that they’’ll facilitate both the connection as the establishment of the pilot situation. Where needed they’ll surround the award winner with extra experts or mentors.
In4Care is a member organisation of +400 care organisations. The core business of In4Care is helping its members innovate. They see HackBelgium as a great opportunity to help their members do just that.
Brainstorm Solutions to the Challenges
To solve the above challenges, we recommend you take part in the Roundup Workshop in the ‘Sick No More’ theme at the close of Day 1, where a mix of ideas will be brainstormed and teams will be formed.

About the Health Societal Theme
While humanity has made considerable progress in reducing the global burden of disease, the job is not complete and new challenges are emerging.
According to the World Health Organization, nearly six million children still die before their 5th birthday, and diseases such as AIDS and malaria still kill millions. Antimicrobial resistance means that infectious disease remains a major threat to global health.
The prevalence of chronic illness is increasing rapidly and most healthcare systems are still ill-equipped to address such challenges.
At the same time, there might be tremendous opportunity to prevent or reduce the impact of diseases that afflict us today, through lifestyle change or minimally invasive interventions facilitated by prediction and early interception, even before clinical symptoms are present.
We urgently need to find transformational solutions that can change the lives of people in both developed and developing countries. We must take a more holistic approach that does not rely solely on treating diseases, but addresses disease along the entire continuum of health, including prevention, disease interception and cure.
Fortunately, recent technological advances and the availability and utilization of data can be great enablers in this regard. But, we also need to collaborate across the entire healthcare ecosystem, including patients, to build truly integrated solutions, with the joint objective to create a world without disease. So, join us in the healthcare revolution, and together we have the potential to do so much more!
