Creating the Future of Oncology with Digital Delight

With Koen Kas. Health Futurist, Keynote Speaker, Delight Thinker & CEO Healthskouts

Available as Keynote, Webinar and Workshop

Keynote Presentation

Cancer and delight – strange bedfellows. And yet, digital and bio breakthroughs in oncology and beyond promise vast improvements in precision diagnostics and therapies, personalised prevention and screening, self-management and at-home care, clinical trials and even cancer drug discovery. Koen will inspire your audience with an avalanche of innovations and illustrate how life sciences companies and providers can stitch such innovations together to provide the cancer patient with the best possible, delightful care, physically, mentally & beyond.

The keynote can be tailored to a specific cancer type or therapeutic domain. Also available as Webinar or Online Briefing

Delight Workshops & Sprints

Koen Kas, Frank Boermeester and the Healthskouts team have developed a unique Delight Thinking methodology and workshop design that can take your team all the way from ‘white page’ ideation to the development of tactical roadmaps and prototypes for bringing extreme Delight to your patients, customers and stakeholders. From a 1/2 day workshop to multiple day Sprints, we can tailor the format to the needs of your team.  Furthermore, we can kick off the workshop with an inspiring presentation to feed preliminary ideas and insights into the creative session.

A Recent Oncology Keynote by Koen Kas

Why Delight is the Key to the Future of Health – and your Future

The twin digital and biological revolutions are leading us to a future where the ultimate friction in the patient journey – sickness itself – will be prevented or eradicated. Technological and scientific breakthroughs will not be enough, however, to unlock this future. In our view, the essential – and today often overlooked – ingredient is patient and citizen delight.

Delight is the experience that comes closest to art and magic. It is a healthcare experience that at times is comforting and relieving, other times inspiring and energising. It is often positively surprising, and always feels remarkable for its timely relevance. And even when fully digital, it is always expressive of human ingenuity, passion and empathy. It is the essential ingredient that keeps us, as patients, committed and engaged to our pursuit of health.

That is why delight is also the key to your future as a healthcare company, the secret sauce that will keep you and your company relevant and competitive. It is why every healthcare company needs a Chief Delight Officer, and why the mission to create patient delight should be written in the DNA of every employee.

At Healthskouts, we are focused exclusively on helping our clients create Delight for their patients and stakeholders. Via our inspiring Delight Keynotes and Delight Workshops, we deliver the ideas, insights and concepts for making patient experiences delightful and optimising health.

We're so passionate about bringing delight in healthcare that we wrote the book on it.

This book is about delight. It introduces the power of delight to create a novel future, not just predict it. It provides a framework and a fireworks of examples of delight thinking in healthcare and beyond. It shows how this allows to create a new reality, a world where one gets sick no more.

Koen Kas’ book “Your Guide to Delight” can be purchased online here. It is also available in bulk to include in event goody bags.
