Hospitals and health services are under increased pressure from escalating costs and growing demand. The ability to harness digital disruption is key to easing the strain and delivering more adaptable and efficient healthcare. Collaboration and change management can facilitate implementation and help overcome the barriers posed by issues of security, engagement and integration.
Where and how can digital technologies, devices and applications, and the data they produce, have the most meaningful impact? How can they be evaluated to assess their effectiveness in terms of cost savings and enhanced experiences and outcomes for patients? To what extent can innovation promote wellness and relieve the burden on services?
The FT Digital Health Summit, now in its fifth year, will answer these questions and many more as it explores ways to implement digital transformation and improve the impact of innovation. Discussion will delve deep into the constraints and opportunities and consider how patients, hospitals, clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, insurers, innovators, investors and regulators can work together to ensure that technology is efficient and consistent in meeting the evolving needs of patients and in sustaining high-value integrated care.
