Digital health innovation – healthcare innovation explored followed by HISA NSW AGM

Question: "What is the future for improving patient experience via innovation, especially using integrated and interoperable wearable technologies?”

HISA in partnership with HealthTech Sydney invite you to a night where digital health technology and health system innovation are explored.

The digital revolution is changing how we work and creating new growth industries and businesses – and no more so than in healthcare. The last few years have seen great advancements in genomics and bio-technologies, with an increasing growth of biometrics, wearable devices and mobile apps supporting personal health and wellness, and the broader uptake of mobile and consumer technology.

So why is the healthcare sector lagging compared to other industries in regards to the pace of system change and adoption of technologies required to obtain true benefits and increased value?

Can integrated platforms leverage information from a variety of sources including wearable sensors to facilitate healthcare delivery that is personalised , predictive, preventative and enable patient centred outcomes and research?

At the recent Technolomy Bio 2015 Conference in California USA, Susan Desmond-Hellmann, the CEO of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation discussed the need to harness the great things happening in biotech and IT, noting the pace that these areas are accelerating. “There is a need to bring these two areas closer together. It feels like we’re just at the start of it, there’s so much more we can and should do.” said Desmond-Hellmann.
