An unprecedented amount of change is coming to our largely analog and institution-centered health systems in this era of digitization and democratization. Dr. Khayat explores emerging technologies are accelerating the shift towards the future of health(care).
What we really have is a fundamental disequilibrium between the demand for health services by a population that’s growing in size, staying alive longer and accumulating illness and disease and a system that was not designed for that volume, scale and complexity. Therefore, our health systems can’t meet the demand, but we face a crux when demand exceeds supply, which creates the perfect breeding ground to do things differently.
Zayna is a futurist that’s sought after many global companies and conferences that want to get ahead in health and innovation. Her work and research have collaboratively urged her audiences to demand more in their health care. Dr. Khayat was previously the lead of health system innovation at MaRS Discovery District, a health innovation hub in Toronto, Canada. Currently, Zayna Khayat is Future Strategist with SE Health (formerly, Saint Elizabeth Health Care) a health and social impact enterprise with a major focus on creating a better future for aging adults in their homes and communities.

In this rapid fire, engaging talk Zayna explores the overall shift in healthcare in an era of digitization, democratization and severe fiscal constraint.
Healthcare has traditionally been resistant to change, it has had one business model, and rapidly advancing technologies present a challenge for the industry. Statements such as ‘medicine will advance more in the next 10 years than it did in the past 100’ are frightening, as the industry does not have the mindsets, toolsets and infrastructure to adapt at this scale.
There is a power shift occurring – from the healthcare provider to ‘people-powered health care.’ In this ‘patient revolution’, patients are taking matters into their own hands, now that they have more information as well as the means of production. Employers are also starting to become healthcare organizations, rather than waiting for or trying to fix the current healthcare system.
“Tania is an incredibly engaging speaker who delivers her message passionately and effectively. Months later, my colleagues and I still talk about her speech and the insights we took away from it.I have also been sharing Tania’s TEDx talk with friends who have historically struggled to pinpoint their “super powers”. I have found her insights to be effective in helping professionals identify and highlight their unique abilities.”
