Scaling up for the Genetics
and Data Revolution
19 June 2023 | QEII Centre, London
Welcome to Strategies for University Hospitals
The Strategies for University Hospitals initiative offers news, meetings and analysis of the sector across EMEA. It is where leaders of university hospitals, academic medical centersand research institutes gather to solve management challenges. The one-day Strategies for University Forum, now in its second year, gives attendees insights into how other institutions address challenges. This forum helps organisations create the right long-term goals, culture, and partnerships to succeed globally.
The three-day HBI 2023 program features CEOs from large international healthcare organisations in hospitals, labs/imaging, and elderly care. They discuss how they use AI, digital health, and partnerships in their operations.
An incredibly valuable event. It’s really bringing a lot of like-minded people across the broader healthcare sector together, whether it’s around industry, legal, processes, health systems, academic institutions, end users or education. Sitting on panels with that broad variety of groups makes us think laterally. The more that we share global learnings, the more that we can all accelerate our own learning and improve and optimise what we do within healthcare.”
– NADINE HACHACH-HARAM, Director of Clinical Innovation and Strategic Partnerships, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
The theme for 2023 Strategies for University Hospitals Forum is Scaling up for the Genetics and Data Revolution.
This half day leadership forum aims to address the urgent, burning question for all university hospitals as new guidelines enforce the roll out of mass genetic testing, particularly in oncology. Whilst also recognising the need to adopt population health management systems and linking them to primary care.
Keynote sessions and speakers on Monday, June 19 currently include:
10.30 – 11.00 Keynote: What is Possible Today?
Perhaps the most advanced genetic and population health management in the world is operated by Clalit, an integrated payor/provider that covers 3m Israelis which has had sophisticated electronic patient records for over 20 years. So, with the right data, the right culture and the right systems, what is possible today? And what will be possible tomorrow?
Ran Balicer, Chief Innovation Officer, Clalit
11.00 – 12.00 Challenges and Solutions: Panel Discussion
What are the main barriers to the roll out of comprehensive genetic testing platforms for all patients? And what further challenges are imposed by broader population health management systems? How important is partnering in building these massive systems? Here we dissect the barriers and solutions which we then discuss during the day.
Prof Anna Wedell, Director, Precision Medicine, Karolinska Ran Balicer, Chief Innovation Officer, Clalit
Dr Federico Esposti, COO, San Raffaele Hospital
Moderated by Max Hotopf, Chairman and Founder, HBI
12.00 – 12.30 Keynote: Implementing Personalised Medicine in a University Hospital Setting

Prof Anna Wedell, Director, Precision Medicine Center, Karolinska
12.30 – 13.30 Lunch
13.30 – 14.45 Building Population Health Management Solutions: Panel Discussion
What are the real issues and challenges to building effective population health management solutions? What is the role of university hospitals in such systems and how can they best link into the wider health care system to develop a 360° view of the patient?
Prof Pim Van der Harst, Head of Cardiology, University Medical Center Utrecht
Dr Ingrid Wolfe, Director for the Institute of Women and Children’s Health, King’s College, London
Dr David Codling, Consultant Psychiatrist, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust

14.45 – 15.30 Partnering Strategies: Panel Discussion
This session brings together a group of senior managers whose role is to promote and build partnerships in the university hospital ecosystem. How are university hospitals changing their approach to partnering whether with primary care networks, governments or suppliers? And what are the main challenges they face?
Joseph Casey, Director, Partnerships and Programmes, Kings Health Partners
Prof Johan Van Eldere, UZ Leuven
Moderated by Max Hotopf, Chairman and Founder, HBI
15.40 – 16.10 How to Partner Better: Keynote Presentation
Building these new platforms calls for multi-decade programmes and much deeper and more intricate partnerships between university hospitals and research centres and industry. In this keynote we explore what these partnerships should look like and how to best audit them. Neil Wright, Commercial Director, Guy’s and St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust
16.10 – 17.10 How to Partner Better: Interactive Workshops
What steps do you need to take to partner more effectively whether with other provider networks or with medtech, pharma or tech? This round table small group workshop will enable you to assess where you are on the partnership ladder and to identify the actions you need to take to partner better.
17.10 – 18.00 Building Massive Data Platforms
IT and healthcare are a volatile combination! There is a long history of failed data projects! So how do you best build data platforms that are scalable and deliver the right outcomes? Dementias Platform UK is a world leading medical data platform with research data on 3.5m people and 60 cohort studies which brings together data from a vast range of sources including imaging, medical health records and the genome. John looks at what he has learnt since 2014. How do you best build such a platform and what are the mistakes to avoid?
Prof John Gallacher, Director, Dementia Platforms UK, Oxford University
Alex Beauvais, Partner, McKinsey & Company
18.00 – 19.30 Drinks Reception
