What is Technology in Healthcare – The Health Leaders’ Summit 2023 ?

Our Health Service has seen unprecedented demand and our growing and ageing population continues to exert pressure on our stretched resources. It is now more critical than ever to focus on safe and robust systems that will provide greater integration and enhanced patient care.  This Summit will bring together healthcare IT experts and industry leaders who understand the real life challenges of electronic health systems in the context of ever evolving cybersecurity risks while pushing the boundaries of innovative patient care.
