about this event

The aim of this conference is to explore just how far the delivery of health and care has been improved by the availability of new technology, and what the latest predictions are by those working in the field of how medicine will really be practised in ten years’ time.

About this event

This event is aimed primarily at senior executives in the health and care world whose decisions today will hasten – or hinder – the arrival of improved technology-enabled care. We believe we have assembled a group of speakers with the greatest chance of successfully predicting what will happen over the next ten years! 

The aim of this conference is to explore impact of new technologies, for example in the fields of devices, data management, imagining and informatics, on the delivery of health care and to explore the impact of probable future technological developments on the delivery on health care over the next 10 years.


A programme for the event can be found here.
