BUT WHY IS THIS HAPPENING ONLY NOW?
The healthcare sector has long awaited a revolutionary transformation. Unlike other sectors, digital development in healthcare has faced significant hurdles; largely due to serious fragmentation within the sector and in some cases, reticence towards technological advancements. However, with the advent of the data revolution, innovation is driving significant improvements in healthcare, offering better insights and access. This transformation is heavily reliant on data, technology, mobile accessibility, etc., all of which has been serving to democratize healthcare information for everyone. Of course, with these advancements come risks, challenges, and opportunities, all of which hinge on the establishment of a robust and responsible digital identity framework. And, as the healthcare revolution unfolds, it is increasingly clear that digital identity holds a unique role among all other use cases.
DIGITAL IDENTITY AND HEALTHCARE ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME INSEPERABLE.. REVOLUTIONIZING THE WAY WE APPROACH HEALTHCARE DELIVERY!
Healthcare requires more than just basic identity systems. It calls for functional IDs that accommodate various needs while prioritizing privacy due to the sensitive nature of health data. The sector also requires interoperability among health systems to streamline operations and eradicate fragmentation. This creates a hotbed for innovation at many levels and is anticipated to further boost the development of DPIs. Its impact is potentially far-reaching, affecting both developing and developed nations alike due to its universality.
In modernizing healthcare systems, the integration of digital identity ensures privacy, security, interoperability, efficiency, and that patient-centric continuity of care is maintained. At the same time, healthcare systems serve as a catalyst for digital identity by providing a compelling use case for enrollment and driving identity demand through civil registration.
This LiveCast offers you a First-Hand opportunity to gain trustworthy insights into a sector poised for exponential growth – potentially fuelling immense demand for digital identity. So come join internationally acclaimed identity expert and host, Dr. Joseph Atick, along with his esteemed guests, as they explore the synergies between these two revolutions and the important benefits to gain in their dynamic convergence.
Dr. Joseph Atick
Executive Chairman ID4Africa
Dr. Joseph Atick is a recognized world renowned advocate and expert on identity matters. Having been one of the founders of the identity industry nearly 30 years ago, he led several companies in that domain and developed some of the foundational algorithms underlying secure digital identity today, including the first commercially viable face recognition algorithm.
Dr. Atick retired from the industry in 2010 to focus on promoting identity for social and economic development around the world. In that mission he partnered with the World Bank and other UN agencies, and was heavily involved in the development and field testing of the methodology and analytic tools that would guide the subsequent activities in that space, and would lead to the launch of the ID4D initiative at the World Bank.
In 2014, he co-founded ID4Africa as a pan-African Movement to promote responsible digital transformations through digital identity in Africa. He is a staunch defender of privacy, data protection and human rights and continues to provide counsel to governments and international organization on the use of identity for public good.
