Robots and Artificial Intelligence, leading the charge of the futuristic healthcare models
As the demands and needs of patients increase and evolve, in large part due to rapidly ageing population, and the number of nurses and healthcare professionals dwindle, innovative solutions and new healthcare delivery models are constantly being sought. Within the next two to three decades, it is said that the futuristic model of healthcare will include an advancing robotic technology that will not only augment nursing staff shortages, but will also greatly improve delivery of health care - especially for the elderly who want to be independent or hospital immobile patients which may pose technical challenges (lifting and moving) for nurses and caregivers. While reliance on robotic technology in surgical fields has been reality for many years, recent trends and developments indicate that the emergence of robotic technology in the delivery of primary healthcare is a growing phenomenon.

In Japan, companies including Toyota, are receiving subsidies covering half to two-thirds of the cost to develop nursing care robotic equipment to help care for their increasing elderly population. Speaking robots, butler robots, therapeutic robots and the most notable of these Japan-made robots called Actroid-F, a super realistic humanoid, are only some of the radical solutions that are being developed to improve healthcare delivery.

What are the other emerging trends in healthcare and how are they affecting the role of nurses in the continuum of care? What are the roles and accountabilities for the evolving nurse? How can nurses create and sustain trust with patients in the changing healthcare landscape?

These are some of the critical topics to be explored in the upcoming Innovating Care Transforming Nursing Care 2017 conference to be held in Singapore on March 17 and 18, which aims to drive thought leadership across the areas of nursing leadership, promote nursing knowledge and nursing care innovation that can enhance coordination of patient care, improve clinical outcomes, increase patient satisfaction and improve physician collaboration.
