A foresight analysis of pervasive healthcare technologies

Gauthier, Thomas ( Haute école de gestion de Genève, HES-SO // Haute Ecole Spécialisée de Suisse Occidentale) ; Wac, Katarzyna ( University of Copenhagen Denmark)

Inevitably, healthcare goes pervasive, yet its many potential future scenarios are still to be defined. We employ foresight techniques to define some of these scenarios, as relevant for the current and future state of healthcare in Geneva, Switzerland. We teach the methodology to undergraduate business administration students – potential e.g., managers and policymakers in the future healthcare system of Geneva. Our objective is twofold: to train students at scenario building and to develop scenarios for pervasive healthcare technologies and their social implications. Results include scenarios developed by the students as well as lessons learned with respect to the power of foresight techniques employed with novices in this field.
