eHealth CONFERENCE

 Tuesday, September 11 2018 

Overview:

 

As we enter the new era of advances in Information Technology and evolving health systems, it has become increasingly more important in providing patient-centred and cost-effective care through the right use of data and information technology.

 

There is a need for dialogue on how data and technology is empowering patients and revolutionising health and wellbeing by giving control back to the patient over how their medical data is managed, shared and stored, thereby enabling them to take control of their own health and improving the quality of healthcare available.

 

There is also a need for dialogue on the other ways patient data and technology is being used in healthcare to improve outcomes, from identifying best practice to gaining patient insight and saving money. This would help to discover the future of using data and technology in healthcare, the associated governance issues and how it has the potential to transform the whole healthcare system by putting the patient in the driving seat.

 

The eHealth conference would identify trends in patient-facing and clinician facing technologies, that could provide solutions to deliver value-based healthcare.
