The Patient Experience – Improving general health outcomes and empowering patients.
Digital empowers patients to manage their wellbeing, therapies, consultations, diagnostics and more while granting improved visibility of symptoms and physiological changes.
Through mobile, wearable and connected technologies, patients gain control over many medical and health-related touchpoints, encouraging personal change and producing better healthcare outcomes.
To investigate this further, we look forward to welcoming industry experts from the world of Digital Health to discuss use cases and how developments in digital technology place power in the palms of the patients.
