Vive 2024

Attending ViVE 2024 was like stepping into the future of healthcare, where bright minds from all corners of the industry gathered to share, learn, and innovate. It’s like a playground for digital health professionals looking to make a difference. And guess what? We were right there in the thick of it, soaking in every conversation, from formal talks to those casual chats over lunch.

Our time at ViVE 2024 was packed with discussions with those who are shaping the future of healthcare – everyone from providers and developers, to payers and investors. We dived deep into their challenges and brainstormed on how to tackle them together.

So what did we learn? Here are our top five takeaways from ViVE 2024. 

Navigating workforce dynamics

A standout feature of this year’s conference was the inaugural Nurses @ ViVE program, which underscored the pressing issues of clinical staff shortages and burnout. The conversation mostly centred on innovative strategies for addressing these concerns, once again highlighting that innovation isn’t just about creating something new – but finding a way to solve a problem.

Healthcare isn’t just about the medical staff; technical and administrative roles are also tough to fill and keep filled. Discussion and panel sessions alike focused on how automation and artificial intelligence can boost operational efficiencies while also helping to attract and retain talent.

Power in partnerships 

The healthcare industry is in a state of constant change, and working with others becomes a key way to make things better and tackle new challenges. When healthcare companies join forces with tech companies, they can use that technology to innovate, improve workflows and accelerate outcomes.

This teamwork leads to healthcare that’s not only better, but easier for everyone to access. By aiming to reach shared goals, like reducing healthcare costs, improving the care people receive, and helping more people stay healthy, these collaborations are making a real difference in making healthcare work better for everyone.

Money matters

There’s a bit of good news here – things are looking up financially for healthcare providers compared to last year. But, there’s still a long road ahead. Investing in smart technology can help providers grow profits while increasing efficiencies and easing pressures felt from staff shortages.

Investors are back

After a quiet year, investors are getting excited about healthcare again. 

Discussions with venture capital, incubation funds, and private equity leaders reflected a robust optimism, spurred by a stabilization in the investment climate and a recognition of digital health’s potential.

AI. AI. AI.

Last year, everyone was talking about generative AI. This year, it’s all about making those ideas work in the real world. We’re seeing actual improvements in how things are done, thanks to AI. 

Attendees were treated to a deep dive into how artificial intelligence is revolutionizing the field, from enhancing patient care to streamlining administrative processes. The discussions ranged from practical applications of AI in diagnosing and treating diseases more accurately, to its role in managing health data and improving operational efficiencies. 

Presentations showcased real-world examples of AI’s transformative power, highlighting its potential to not only improve outcomes but also to make healthcare more accessible and efficient. The enthusiasm around AI’s current and future applications was palpable, underscoring its pivotal role in shaping the next frontier of healthcare innovation.

The final word

At the heart of healthcare innovation are patients. Throughout our time at ViVE, all our conversations were focused on driving forward transformative changes in the healthcare sector; to improve patient data management, enhance the overall patient experience, and, ultimately, push the boundaries of healthcare to better meet the health and wellness needs of communities.
