Masterclass: Digital Health Safety

7 November 2017
9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Cocoon Networks



7th November:

DigitalHealth.London and the Digital Health and Care Alliance invite SMEs and start-ups to join our third Masterclass, on patient safety in digital health.

We know that digital health interventions have profound potential to bring about real change across many aspects of health and care, and this includes interventions that can improve the safety of patient care. Digital technology can reduce the incidence of medication errors, AI can help to detect deteriorating conditions, or patients can be empowered through wearables (and other devices) to be more aware of their own conditions – all of which can have positive impact on patient safety.

However, as the scope for digital interventions expands across the health and care sector, it is increasingly important that innovators are up to speed with the appropriate regulations and frameworks in place to protect patients and keep them safe from harm, and it’s important to acknowledge where risk from digital interventions might arise, in order to be sure to avoid it.

This event is both for innovators developing new digital health technologies and for health & care managers implementing those technologies.

There will be a small charge of £36 to attend this event, in order to cover costs.
