Healthcare Innovations

This full day event brings together senior NHS and social care professionals with expert industry and academic technology innovators to explore how new technologies in sensing, imaging and the Internet of Things (IoT) could solve some of the challenges facing the NHS today.

Technology is developing and improving at a tremendous rate and this event will explore how new innovations could be used in the health and social care sector to improve patient care, reduce waste and inefficiencies and streamline processes.

The day will start with plenary speakers outlining health and social care challenges as well as an overview of what technologies are already in use in other sectors that could evolve to suit health and social care challenges.
