Diagnostics, Drugs, Data & Devices – How Will These Influence Patients & Outcomes In The Future?

Date: 
Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 14:00 to 15:00
Location: 
Virtual

This event is being delivered by members of the BioDundee community, Waracle.

Patient-centricity is key when it comes to providing effective healthcare. Currently, some of the most exciting opportunities lie within the development of digital health technologies that can help manage diseases, improve outcomes for patients, and positively support healthcare professionals to improve the provision of care.

In order to be effective, digital solutions need to be built around patients and their specific needs. Digital solutions that are effective in the real world must be designed to support patient tasks and goals whilst also being engaging to use. In other words, they need to be built with patients and not for them.

Join industry experts as they discuss their thoughts on the healthcare 4d’s (Diagnostics, Drugs, Data & Devices) and how these key areas will truly influence patient outcomes in the future.

This is an unmissable event if you or your organisation are looking to further develop your digital healthcare solutions, so don’t miss out, sign up today.
