Future of Healthcare 2019 : CFP – Innovation, Sustainability and the Future of Healthcare (LAST CALL)
Call For Papers
The Center of the Governance of Change (CGC) at IE is seeking contributions from established or promising young researchers in the area of Healthcare AI and its relation with society, public policy, and the economy, to elaborate a report on the state of the art of AI technologies in the clinic.
This report is part of a broader international project supported by the Lilly Foundation.
Authors will receive appropriate remuneration for participating in the report; honoraria will range from £500 to £3000 depending on the contribution.
The Programme is designed to study the future of the healthcare system, in a new medical paradigm defined by the generalization of new technologies and the advent of dramatic changes in demography, life expectancy, disease prevalence, and the political ecosystem. The Programme is conducting pioneering and multidisciplinary research with a team of international experts.
This year, the research is focusing on the question of data-driven and artificial intelligence-based technologies in the clinic.
This call is looking for contributions of two different types:
1. Papers on the affordability and sustainability of the emerging models of healthcare within the context of emerging developments in artificial intelligence and data-driven technologies. The papers should focus on one or several of the following broad areas:
1.1. Large-scale implementation of data-driven innovation:
- Digital healthcare as a clinical transformation
- Data-driven prevention vs. disease treatment
- Downstream costs: personalised treatments
- The regulatory framework
1.2. Innovation in the healthcare budget:
- AI / data strategies in European countries
- Innovation investment in current healthcare budgets
- The public’s perception of healthcare investment
1.3. Public demand, cost-benefit and technological availability: the biggest opportunities
2. Case studies. Examples of devices, platforms or algorithms using AI for diagnosis, monitoring, follow-up, image assessment, or data integration. Each case study should cover at least the following aspects:
- Development: regulation, barriers, disruption/transformation of clinical practice...
- Previous evidence: what economic impact it is expected to have, and based on what data.
- Current status: how it has performed so far.
Authors should bear in mind that our target audience for this report are policy makers, senior decision makers, and the public at large.
Papers should have between 1,500 and 2,500 words, spanning between 5 and 7 pages, and including at least two figures or diagrams. The remuneration for papers will be between £2,000 and £3,000 approximately, according to the contribution.
Case studies should have between 400 and 700 words, spanning between 1 and 2 pages, and including at least one figure or diagram. The remuneration for case studies will be between £500 and £800.
The deadline for submission of finished papers and case studies is Friday, 14th November, 2019. Progress reports will be due on Friday, 13th September, 2019. No extensions will be granted.
Application: Proposals must be submitted by filling out the online form (https://mix12.typeform.com/to/Eldp0E).
The deadline for submissions is Friday, 21st June 2019.
