Healthcare-focused innovation accelerator and events business Health Tech Innovation Labs is hosting a Connected Health Technology conference bringing together key stakeholders in accelerating technology innovation in healthcare. The event takes place in London on September 18th.
Commonly covered on our pages, for example in the form of devices that boast remote monitoring function, Connected health is the practice of medicine and public health supported by connected devices and systems. It encompasses any facet of healthcare delivery that involves connectivity from the consumer, patient, healthcare practitioner through to a hospital system. It includes the use of information and communication technology (ICT), such as computers, mobile phones, communications satellite, patient monitors, etc., for health services and information. Connected Health applications include the use of mobile devices in early diagnosis, screening of disease, medication adherence, collecting community and clinical health data, delivery of healthcare information to practitioners, researchers, and patients, real-time monitoring of patient vital signs, and direct provision of care (via mobile telemedicine).
The forthcoming event will feature presentations from key policy makers and entrepreneurs and deal with current trends in Connected health and how to develop and get commercial traction with a Connected health business. The format is intended to inspire interesting discussion in this fast growing healthcare technology area and will be of interest to Connected health entrepreneurs, sector investors, global Pharma and IT executives, medical professionals, and associated professionals, including patent attorneys, accountants and lawyers, who are involved in or interested in the sector.
Confirmed speakers are from HP, Deloitte, Silicon Valley Bank host sponsors Simmons and Simmons and technology experts from Manchester, Imperial and Leeds Universities.
