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.

Increasingly cross-sector collaboration, innovation, big data and the possibilities of AI mean we are at transformational moment for Health. But our leaders need the skills and capability to understand HealthTech to build this technology. Because if HealthTech is driven only by an enthusiastic digital team, it will fail.
