The mission and responsibility of the Healthcare System should not end at legal and medical brain death - but should be full service - with the integrity to bring a person back and restore and regenerate them from any state. This is full integrity healthcare and true patient-centricity.

Patient-centricity should not end at a legal definition of death. In the same way that we wish for the Healthcare System to be futuristic - and for it to provide advanced prosthesis, emergency drones, full service whole body regenerative medicine, the Healthcare System should lead the world and the future of healthcare in the field of cryonics, brain restoration and brain regeneration.

Summary of Points:

1) Peace-of-mind/Patient-Centricity - What level of peace-of-mind and patient-centricity do we want to ensure for patients and patient families? Cryonics may offer most advanced peace-of-mind that patient may be cured/regenerated in future.

2) Human Rights/Patient Access - Are current legal and medical definitions of death and end of life care Just and correct? Is there more we can do now or in the future. Is stopping patient access to future treatment ethical/criminal?

3) Human Rights/Patient Access - Catering to those who wish to be brought back and to have a chance to be regenerated for those with that culture/belief system

4) Patient Experience - Pushing the experience of and remit of the Healthcare System further and leading such innovation in technology and innovation in care and innovation in end-of-life care and long-term care.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

When does patient-centricity and the patient experience stop - and when does responsibility stop and why?
