The International Hospital Federation (IHF) has announced a new forum to connect innovators and healthcare leaders at the World Hospital Congress 2023.
The i-to-i Innovation Hub will showcase cutting-edge innovations from across the globe that will demonstrate their impact in moving i-to-i – from innovation to implementation – in hospital and healthcare delivery settings.
The IHF will present the Hub in collaboration with the UK Department for Business and Trade, and Stanford Medicine.
Ronald Lavater, CEO of the IHF, said: “At the IHF, our core mission is to support those leaders to excel in service delivery, improving health outcomes for everyone, everywhere. To ensure our network of members are leading the way in building the hospital of the future, the i-to-i Innovation Hub will bring innovative approaches to healthcare delivery into the World Hospital Congress, creating a forum for innovators and leaders to engage.”
The Hub will showcase 10 to 15 companies that are using innovative approaches to improve the quality and efficiency of patient-centred care, under the theme of ‘hospital care outside the hospital setting’. It will have a bespoke space at the Congress venue, promoting collaboration and enabling participants to engage directly with the featured innovators. The physical forum for dialogue will also allow the innovators to learn from open discussion with hospital leaders on the challenges they face.
