Controlling the Rising Cost of Healthcare Through Digital Advancements

Supported by:

One of the key healthcare challenges of the 21st century is the need to control costs against the backdrop of an ageing population and new advances in medicine. It’s clear that new technologies and digital advancements hold much potential in helping address this challenge while also improving overall health outcomes.

Big data could be the key to analysing and preventing the spread of epidemics; wearables and smartphone Apps are opening up new possibilities for preventative intervention; while telemedicine and virtual care services are already improving the efficiency of patient care management. No doubt the coming years will see new technologies bring new advancements we have not yet even dreamt of.

Now more than ever, business leaders across the health value chain, including health providers, insurers and medical manufacturers need to work together to ensure we can effectively harness these new technologies to bring down the cost of healthcare in the long term.

Join the Healthcare Committee for a thought-provoking discussion and there will be an open Q&A session to encourage everyone to share their views.
