What’s next for healthcare: Gamification 

What’s next for healthcare - Jan De Boer on: Gamification:

So one of the big trends in the world is gamification. And what you are doing is that you are changing behavior. And when you look at a book and you read it might not come alive. So to put in a game element, an emergency unit is actually improving the way they’re delivering for their patients in the emergency unit.

So one of my clients, they have a very big emergency unit. And if people get shot or get wounded, people have to train to be able to deal with that. What they’ve developed is an emergency unit game. So all the protocols and everything that everyone is doing with equipment is then put into a game and they’re not practicing on patients but within that game, how to work as a team, how to be better than the other team.

So I would say embrace the technology, use it and look at the bright side of using IT as an enabler for healthcare.

Jan De Boer, a Partner with KPMG in the Netherlands, talks about what’s next for healthcare: how the trend towards gamification is changing behaviors across the sector.
