SOUTH AFRICA – Media OutReach – 20 September 2019 – The healthcare industry has historically been slow in
adopting technology, however, studies show that by embracing emerging
technologies such as AI, EHR, IoMT, augmented reality, wearables and robotics
the industry can reap significant benefits, namely improved patient care, lower
healthcare costs, dosage error reduction, hospital asset tracking and
monitoring, and reducing the need for large numbers of on-site medical
personnel in African healthcare facilities.
For sustainable success and growth
in the healthcare arena, it is critical to embrace technologies that not only
result in a reduction in the overall cost of care, especially in these
economically challenging times, but also keep up with global trends. The 5th annual Healthcare Innovation
Summit Africa aims to tackle the many healthcare challenges that still
exist in Africa, as well as critically assess the ways in which emerging
technology trends can improve healthcare on the continent.
Set to take place on the 08 and 09 October 2019,
at the Gallagher Convention Centre, the fifth edition of the Healthcare
Innovation Summit Africa will
focus on exploring emerging healthcare technology trends and aims to provide
solutions to technology challenges within healthcare. Under the theme “Digital Building Blocks For A Patient
Centred Healthcare System” the summit will host the who’s who of African
healthcare for two days of networking, lively intellectual exchange and
exploration to see what’s new, what’s cutting edge and what will shape the
future of healthcare.
HISA2019 will join the dots between innovation and
practicality, presenting the latest healthcare technologies and showcasing their
practical application and integration into existing healthcare infrastructure.
