This meeting aims to provide delegates with an understanding of the current and future applications of digital technologies within healthcare.

This highly popular annual event explores the current developments and future applications of digital health.

Based on the success of previous years’ events, with tickets selling out many weeks in advance, delegates are guaranteed to receive high yield information regarding digital health, ideal for anyone either within healthcare, industry or academia.

Attracting international leaders from within digital health, this is an excellent networking opportunity to further develop your understanding of the dynamic and rapidly evolving digital healthcare landscape.

Not only will the meeting provide attendees with the patient’s view and clinician’s perspective on digital health; but it will also share the opinions of many internationally recognised leaders within digital health. 

Delegates will experience two outstanding keynote sessions provided by Mustafa Suleyman, from Google’s Artificial Intelligence branch, DeepMind, and Dr Euan Ashley from Stanford University in California who leads Apple’s MyHeartCounts.

Providing a global perspective from leaders within digital health, this is an unmissable event.

Specific learning objectives:

  • Provide delegates with perspective on the opportunities, challenges and successes within digital health
  • Provide delegates with an outline of future trends within digital health relating to artificial intelligence, clinical trial design and patient monitoring
  • Provide delegates with an understanding relating to how the NHS is adopting digital health technologies
