Programme sessions

Technologies underpinning Digital Health

Digital health is transforming healthcare across the whole patient pathway from prevention, through diagnosis and intervention, to ongoing monitoring across a broad range of care settings. At the heart of this transformation is the ability to analyse large datasets of information and through AI develop novel insights. The first session on digital health will look at some of the approaches underpinning this transformation, and explore their impact across clinical AI and imaging. This transformation is also opening up new ways of addresses innovation challenges within healthcare systems.
