The Great Debate 2019: Can new technologies transform healthcare?

The increasing adoption of digital technology has resulted in fundamental changes in many industries. Yet healtcare, which represents about 10% of global GDP, has lagged behind other sectors. This is about to change as big data and artificial intelligence will deliver improvements in diagnosis and treatment that will increase health care’s reach, efficiency, accuracy and reduce waiting time for patients.

Technological advances offer significant opportunities to improve healthcare and have the potential to deliver significant value for the NHS. This year’s Great Debate will provide an update on the latest technology advances to deliver these benefits.

There will be four presentations as below, followed by a debate and Q&A.

    1. Human-Computer Interaction
    2. Digital Health innovation at the NHS Frontline: Transformation and reality checks
    3. Using AI to improve clinical effectiveness
    4. Ensuring new technologies are introduced effectively and safely
