HealthTech

We are investigating the potential for HealthTech to improve our patient outcomes, drive efficiency and deliver medical breakthroughs. With smartphone cameras being heart rate monitors, and contact lenses measuring blood sugar levels we are moving into an era when we can all collect physiological data about ourselves.

It is crucial that our leaders gain the skills and capabilities necessary to understand HealthTech and build new technologies. If HealthTech is driven only by an enthusiastic digital team, it will fail.
