Inclusion in healthtech: is being at the cutting edge the problem? (London)
Time & Location
About the Event
The world of digital health is an exciting field where start-ups, bigger tech firms and investors are often driven by building products and services that are at the cutting edge – using the most complex algorithms or latest technology. Yet, to what extent do these solutions REALLY help those REALLY in need; those who might not have the right skills to use the tech, or who maybe can’t afford it?
Join us for this panel event where we will seek to explore the question of whether we are focusing too much on developing the “latest tech” at the “cutting edge”, rather than looking to see if simpler, more accessible and democratised forms of technology could be used instead?
