3rd Health Innovation Conference
Providing more while using less !
In recent years great progress has been noted in all medical care sectors, with the invention of innovative medicines, vaccines, diagnostic methods and operative techniques. At the same time, the development of Genetics and Artificial Intelligence as well as the increasing use of smart phone apps and wearable devices, have brought about expectations for more radical changes in the healthcare sector.
However, the rapid advancement of new and costly technologies on one hand and population aging on the other, have put serious economic stress on all national health systems, at a time when consumers’ demands regarding the use of new pharmaceuticals and technologies are on a constant rising trend. Therefore, health systems nowadays are required to modernize medical care, contain expenses and improve the quality and efficiency of services offered to patients.
Recently, all those involved in the healthcare sector have come to realize that they should start thinking of ways to “achieve more while using less”. To this effect, the 3rd Health Innovation Conference, which will be held on April 04, 2019 in Divani Caravel Hotel, aims at highlighting all prospects and challenges that have emerged in medical care, which are linked to the development of new technologies.
