3:10 PM Current ICT Trends Impacting New Models of Care and Leveraging Emerging Technologies to Achieve Greater Connectivity and Access
Recent “disruptive technologies” currently impact business models in health, for example, mobile, cloud and IoT. These can catalyse new models of care which bring the focus of control closer to the individual or their carers. Empowering individuals to manage their health status addresses the burden of disease and improves quality of life. This presentation will provide some examples of how health services can leverage these technologies.
- Greater connectivity and power of mobile devices supports distributed work tasks
- Access to information when and where it is needed allows better health decisions
- Collecting data continuously for individuals provides more personalised health understanding
