FT Digital Health Summit Europe – From Fragmentation to Integration / 19 June / Berlin
This summit will focus on the approaches, investment and frameworks needed to implement connected health solutions.
Fragmentation in healthcare and lack of coordination between departments and services are major barriers to be overcome as the transformation of health gathers pace. Digital technologies have the power to connect and integrate isolated and disparate services and deliver more intuitive and coordinated patient experiences. However, with the growing complexity of new technologies, devices and applications, there is a risk that digital innovations will add to the fragmentation if the issues are not addressed.
The programme will explore how technology can help to unite fragments, strengthen systems, and improve patient experiences and outcomes throughout the continent.
