This lecture, in honour of Derek Hoy who was a visionary colleague, will consider the massive emergence and transitory acceptance of digital technology within healthcare over the past eighteen months brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.

The presentation will take a considered view into the near future and highlight the anticipated digital disruption to traditional healthcare practise that will require significant re-design of the ways in which we work. The need to ‘flip’ our understanding of information in order to generate a power base for the transition of healthcare is central to the future of care provision, moving from an illness service to that of a true health service will be core to the presentation. A challenge to all will conclude the presentation.
