WEBINAR: Digital Technology and the Future of Healthcare
November 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This webinar will explore how digital technologies have been used during the pandemic and consider the potential for driving change in health and social care provision.
The potential of ‘big data’ approaches are increasingly being recognised, and the value of people’s data signatures as indicators of activity, well-being, and broader social trends is being explored in various healthcare settings.
Hosted by Medilink Midlands, this webinar will feature speakers from De Montfort University’s Digital Health research team and partner organisation Howz. Howz is a member of TSA, the industry body for Technology Enabled Care (TEC), representing the largest industry specific network in Europe and bringing together a growing membership of organisations across local government, health and the private sector.
Key areas explored at the webinar will include:
• Findings from an ongoing project on using a smart-meter app to detect electricity usage patterns within the home, and the potential to identify significant changes in an individual’s physical ability.
• Capacity for digital technology to enhance health and well-being.
• The long-term trends of digital technology in healthcare.
