How will the future of HealthTech and AI affect patient care?

We’ll explore the potential effects that futuristic technologies may have on patient care and how this might alter current and future landscapes.

Welcome to the future of innovation. Our brand new bi-monthly event series brings together the brightest minds and leading experts from academia, business, government and society to explore and dissect the ‘big picture’ topical issues within innovation. We’ve brought together a broad range of expertise and opinions to discuss, sometimes provocative, sectoral challenges and opportunities; whilst paving the way to predictions for the future of innovation.

With the rapid acceleration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) innovation in the use of technology throughout health services - how will the future of HealthTech and AI affect patient care?

Taking to the virtual stage, our line-up of experts will consider:

  • The full lifecycle of tech - from data collection and implementation through to user experience - are we taking a human-centred approach?
  • How can we support the infrastructure and delivery of HealthTech?
  • How accessible are technologies to the general population?
  • What are the challenges facing human adoption and the acceptance of HealthTech?
  • How can AI and HealthTech support the personalisation of patient care?
  • Predictions for the future
