Future Health Collective

 

Future Health Collective is a multi-disciplinary, cross-sector group geared to foster collaboration and radical innovation in areas of unmet need in health and social care with a vision to create better lives for people. The Collective builds ecosystems and collaborative networks to help corporates, start-ups, third sector and investors form strategic partnerships and facilitate smart investment- for long term, sustainable impact and positive change.  By bringing diverse perspectives and experiences from government, industry and society we stimulate new ideas and interesting conversations through the lens of convergence from major global disruptive forces.

THEME 1: CITIZEN-DRIVEN DATA ECONOMY

Our first theme is on 'data that matters' in a digital economy.  This theme kicked off with a round table on 17th November, 2017 hosted by the Government Office for Science, and with the support of our partners Auriens, Aging 2.0, Future Care Capital, Partnership for Change and Kent, Surrey & Sussex Academic Health Science Network (KSS AHSN), involved senior leaders from the NHS, social care, third sector, industry, technology and policy to explore specific opportunities and barriers of using data to underpin new, person-centric and outcome- focused models of health and care. 

THEME 2: LONGEVITY & HEALTHY AGEING

Our second theme is on new thinking in ageing and longevity, including prediction of life course and extension of ‘healthspan’ (not just lifespan).

Through curated events and a collaboration platform with the D/SRUPTION HUB,  we are exploring new ideas and thinking on growing the ‘longevity dividend’ and creating businesses of the future that will harness the opportunities of the growing ageing demographic.



Theme 2: Longevity & Healthy Ageing

   Healthy Ageing And The Longevity Economy In The ‘100 Year Life’    Forget technology. The growing ageing demographic is fast becoming the biggest force in disruption, not just for business but for society, work, play and life in general. Advances in healthcare have helped us live longer and longevity research is booming with the prospect of extending the human lifespan more promising every day. However, the real goal is to live healthier, longer lives, not just increase our time. And this is the hard part, but also the one with the most potential for disruption.  The Future Health Collective joined forces with UK Research & Innovation to host an event at the Disruption Summit in September 2018 that presented the latest scientific developments and socioeconomic research that show the promise and potential of a longer healthspan. The panel explored why we need to turn the conversation from the negative ‘ageing demographic time bomb’ to a more positive narrative around ‘longevity dividend’. How can we invest in longevity for wider social good? How can we make the UK the best place in the world to grow old in?  Curated and chaired by Tina Woods, the panel had leading thought leaders and innovators including:  Andrew Scott:  Author, The 100-Year Life   Eric Kihlstrom:  UK Ambassador to Aging2.0, Former Interim Director, Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund for Healthy Ageing   Dmitry Kaminskiy:  Co-founder & Managing Partner, Deep Knowledge Ventures   Highlights of the event were featured in an FT Video podcast as well as published in the FT’s Next Act The  Lucrative Business of Living Longer.

Theme 1: Citizen Driven Data Economy

  Open Data Ecosystems in Health: Lessons from Finland, Estonia and Open Banking   At this closed session, Antti Larsio, Senior Advisor to SITRA (The Finish Innovation Fund), shared SITRA’s experience and perspective on open data ecosystems through their work on IHAN (International Human Account Network), a human driven data economy involving the creation of a method for data exchange and set up of European level rules and guidelines for ethical use of data. SITRA is working with Estonia on two data exchange layer pilot to test the suitability of Estonia’s X-Road solution for the organisation and provision of social and healthcare services.  Gavin Starks (CEO, Dgen, Former CEO of Open Data Institute) share his experience in setting up the Open Banking Specification in the UK setting out a vision of how lessons learned could be applied in the UK health and care context harnessing consumer and NHS/social care data sets, opening innovation in health innovation and supporting the SME sector.  This session was held for senior stakeholders in health and care to provide food for thought on addressing the urgent need to address data infrastructure and interoperability in the NHS, including making use of open standards and reviewing commercial arrangements to ensure the value of data is being recognised and distributed appropriately for the benefit of all.

  Data and the Future of Health and Care   We held a round table on 17th November, 2017 hosted by the Government Office for Science, to explore specific opportunities and barriers of using data to underpin new, person-centric and outcome- focused models of health and care. A number of projects are being explored in 2018 to address key recommendations, that will inform policy and support the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund- Healthy Ageing: consumer data-led preventive health frameworks, open data standards in health and care, education on General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Trusted Data Exchange- a vehicle to encourage data philanthropy and share data to encourage innovation, support the SME sector, and facilitate adoption of technology by citizens.
