This event will be looking at how the relatively recent technology boom is affecting and changing the age old practice of medicine. This follows the the shift in healthcare to prioritising quality of life intended to support treatments, rather than treatments alone. We will be discussing how to begin to approach the biggest problems using technology tools. Looking into which challenges to target first, as well as the development of such projects. Further more, how will this fast paced field change in the coming years? Join us for an exciting event which looks into the changing landscape of healthcare.
