Driving Successful Innovation in Healthtech
Wednesday 12 October, 18:30 for 19:00 – 21:00
This event is sponsored by Deloitte
Healthtech is experiencing an unprecedented period of innovation and growth which is in turn driving exceptional opportunities for commercial and social impact. At the same time, there is an inertia within the large and complex, payer-provider system in the UK that can deter and frustrate the entrepreneurial drive in the sector. What are some of the lessons that we can learn from those who have been able to address these challenges to enable successful innovation? How do they think about the role of technology in delivering clinical excellence? What would be their advice for current and aspiring entrepreneurs who are looking to navigate the system? Our panel members are accomplished clinicians, innovators, entrepreneurs and investors who can share unique, holistic perspectives on the topic.
Our panel includes:
